The beautiful deep green emerald gemstone has long been enjoyed as a symbol of luxury. Its discovery dates back to between 1000 and 3000 BCE, where it was found near the Red Sea in Upper Egypt and thus became the gemstone nicknamed “Cleopatra’s Mine”. Cleopatra was known to wear emerald-encrusted robes and also gave pieces of emerald gemstone to others as gifts. The captivating green hue of the emerald gemstone, which can range from a bluish-green to a vivid bright green, makes for an eye-catching addition to yellow gold, white gold and platinum jewellery designs. Emerald is also the birthstone for May, bringing with it fresh colours of spring.
