Diamond and Emerald Engagement Rings are the perfect choice for those who have the fascination for green color.
Meaning of Emerald Engagement Rings
Emerald is a wonderful and a valuable gemstone. It’s a birthstone for month of May. So, if you or your love is May born then it gives you another reason to think about diamond and emerald engagement rings.
Emerald has long been associated with fertility and rebirth. This jewel is dedicated to Venus (the goddess of love and beauty). This gem was believed to bestow on its wearer faithfulness and unchanging love, thus making it a perfect choice for a beautiful engagement ring.
Nowadays, marketing companies have floated the concept that if your love has green eyes, then emerald engagement ring should be your choice. However, in my opinion, color of eyes doesn’t matter. Love in eyes matter! If you feel emerald engagement ring will blend with your partner's overall personality go for it, irrespective of her eyes' color.

The finest-quality of emerald has the color of fresh young green grass. Sometimes, it has an almost pure spectral green with a very faint tint of blue as in the finest emeralds from Colombia.
The most desired color is an intense grass green which is considered very valuable, even when visible inclusions are present in the faceted gem. Flawless emeralds are rare, so the flaws have come to serve almost as "fingerprints", while flawless emeralds are an immediate suspect.
Color of emerald can highly influence its price, so take this factor into consideration while shopping for emerald engagement ring.
Emerald is very sensitive to pressure and banging, that's why the well-known "emerald cut" was developed specifically for this gem to reduce the amount of pressure during cutting.
Emerald cut became quite popular, and emerald cut diamond engagement rings with bolder look became a style statement. Prong Setting looks beautiful with stones in this cut.
