Emerald jewelry symbolizes trust, hope and love. Comparing to rubies that are mostly associated with passion, emeralds are the stones of faithful, mature feelings. That’s why emerald rings often serve as engagement rings. Because of its vivid, bright color emerald also represents the new beginnings of the spring. It’s believed to supply the wearer with vitality and clarity.
The majority of the world’s emerald production takes place in Colombia. Colombian emeralds are known for the highest quality because of the lowest content of iron and fewer impurities. The second place in green gems industry is taken by Zambia.

Why do we love vintage jewelry so much? It’s all about the quality of making and – of course – the look.
Vintage pieces were mostly made by hand or at least hand-finished while modern jewels are mainly cast. As the lifestyle back in the days was much slower, jewelry makers literally had more time in their hands. Skilled craftsmen honed their craft and reputation. They couldn’t allow a flimsy, poorly done piece to ruin that. Mass market jewelry didn’t exist at that time. Each little detail of a piece was executed thoughtfully and with the high quality in mind.
All of the above is especially important when you are looking for a vintage engagement ring. If you want to find a really special, one-of-a-kind engagement ring, look no further because we’ve got you covered.
