Green is color for spring. It reminds fresh March air, April sprouts and May flowers. There is something organic and elegant in this color that makes jewellery look especially sophisticated. When we thing about virescent precious stones, emerald comes first into mind, but there exist wide variety of gems in green, wider than any other color.
The most precious and unique is green diamond. It appears as a result of irradiation of white diamond. Jewellery with such diamonds looks fabulous and extraordinary, showing noble and sophisticated taste of its owner. Among different diamonds, greenish ones occur less often than white and yellow but is more common that black and pink. The biggest in the world is The Dresden Green Diamond, which is worth around $200 million. Tiffany&Co proposes fabulous engagement rings in platinum with green diamonds for keen jewellery lovers.
The most typical and known greenish gem is emerald. It is more common and more affordable yet precious. You can find it also in red, yellow and even black. Emerald is believed to be stone of successful love. I don’t know about love, but successful fashionista can easily make a fresh fashion statement wearing emerald accessories.
Jewellery with alexandrite looks unique and magical. Its basic color is green, but during day and night it can be changed from virescent to yellow, pink and purple. This marvelous Russian gem is rarely used in jewellery nowadays, which makes it even more precious and unique. But in the end of 19th century Tiffany&Co jewellery expert George Frederick Kunz created fantastic ring collection in platinum with alexandrite.
Jewellery with gypsy turquoise also occurs in green color, instead of usual blue. It is one of the most affordable stones, besides its bright hues are perfect for spring and summer. I will definitely add few statement rings with bohemian turquoise to my jewellery collection.
There exist so many beautiful green gems that I just can’t insert them in one post. I really love splendid virescent hues of jadeite, tourmaline, opal, sapphire, peridot, pearl and amber. But it’s up to you what kind of green gems to choose for this spring, according to zodiac sign, birth date or just your aesthetic preference. Being green is easy; at least you can wear green jewellery.
