The Royals revered them, Hollywood’s glamorous brigade has been flaunting them on the red carpet and so have been the bombshells of B-Town. 20 times as rare as diamonds, for over 4,000 years, they have been amongst the most valuable of all jewels on Earth. Scintillatingly green, regally elegant and unarguably celebrated – they are the Columbian Emeralds that have now been made available by Fura Gems! Perfect for weddings we say…
Weddings & beyond:
Popular as engagement rings the world over, Colombian Emeralds range from deep greens to glassy light greens. They have exceptional clarity and lustre making them very versatile for yellow and white gold. And once the wedding ceremonies are over, you can later on, team them with other dresses as well, depending on the size and design of course.

If you choose to buy Columbian Emeralds, well you are following an international trend and aspiration. Prestigious luxury jewellery design houses like David Morris, Cartier, Bulgari and Harry Winston have been designing jewellery with Colombian Emeralds for long, and many special pieces are sold for whopping prices at auction houses. This means that your picking them would garner instant awe.
Heirloom & resale:
Remember the two of most remarkable specimens of the Colombian green, the Guinness or the Chalk Emerald that apparently belonged to the Maharani of Baroda, India? Years later, won’t you want to give your next generation a part of your distinguished jewels? However, if you choose to resell them, you will not be a loser in any way. They come with a high resale value as in the last decade the prices have increased by 5 to 6 times, especially if they are from one of the world’s most ethically sourced miners like Fura.
So all the best in letting the world go ‘green’ with envy as you take your wedding wows.
