The prevalence of green has been rising in the fashion and couture markets. Emeralds, with their classic elegance, make for striking and irresistible fine jewellery pieces. Balanced yet sophisticated, the coveted gemstone enlivens all colors in the spectrum and will continue to make a statement beyond spring and summer, and into fall and winter.
Piaget Secrets & Lights High Jewellery Ring
This glamorous ring is part of Piaget’s “Secrets & Lights – A Mythical Journey by Piaget”, the new Haute Joaillerie collection. Fresh femininity is injected into its design, which features a cushion-cut emerald at its center that weighs approximately 7.29 carats. It is embellished with marquise-cut and brilliant-cut diamonds, and 4 turquoise beads add a surprise twist to the model.
Jacob & Co Cocktail Ring
Emerald gems have risen in profile as an investment in recent years because of their short supply – Colombian emeralds even more so. This striking cocktail ring by Jacob & Co features cabochon-cut Colombian emeralds and brilliant-cut diamonds set in 18-carat white gold. Certainly, a collector’s piece.
Chopard Red Carpet Necklace
Launched during the ongoing Cannes Film Festival, this nature-inspired necklace from Chopard’s Red Carpet collection features as many as 413 carats of emerald beads. 29.8 carats of white opal, 29 carats of topazes, 5.9 carats of amethysts, 4.4 carats of rubies, 4 carats of Paraiba tourmalines, 3.9 carats of rubelites, and sapphires are also used in the creation of Chopard’s necklace, which is made from 18-carat white gold and titanium.
Fabergé Devotion Aurora Emerald Ring
Epitomizing ‘the art of colour’, Fabergé’s Devotion Collection is the sum of brilliant coloured gemstones, artistic ingenuity and high craftsmanship. This ring uses vibrant emeralds with spectacular cut, clarity and character. Its contemporary design provides an insight into the continued creativity of the House of Fabergé, which originated in 1842 in Russia, and is synonymous with ornate Imperial eggs.
Graff Peacock Earrings
Inspired by one of nature’s most beautiful miracles, the peacock, Graff’s design team draws on the natural geometry of the bird’s feathers, with a focus on the ‘eyespot’ that features at its center. These magnificent earrings feature 31.63 carats Columbian emeralds and diamonds weighing 28.80 carats. Instead of a literal interpretation, Graff takes a contemporary approach to the peacock feather with a dramatic formation of diamonds, as though it is being viewed through a kaleidoscope.
