What Does an Emerald Engagement Ring Mean?

May 01, 2023

If you are in the market for a unique engagement ring, you may have your eyes set on an emerald engagement ring. They are exquisite, but you want to make sure you are making the right choice and sending the right message.

The emerald gemstone is an incredibly popular and precious stone known for its vibrant green hue and rich history that dates back to ancient times. Even in modern times, the emerald has remained a popular gemstone for jewellery that celebrates many occasions. 

Unique, eye-catching, and timeless, it has now become a widely sought-after stone for engagement rings. While an emerald engagement ring is beautiful, luxurious, and incredibly elegant, what does it really mean? Is there significance behind giving one to the love of your life that you should be aware of?

A Brief Walk Through History

If you are familiar with emeralds, then you know that it is the birthstone for those born in May and symbolises wealth, abundance, and love. The vibrant and rich green hue found in emerald is strongly associated with nature, harmony, and growth. The unique colour found in this beautiful and rare stone makes it a special engagement ring for that special person in your life. 

However, did you know that the emerald can be traced as far back as Cleopatra’s reign over Egypt? At that time, it was known for its healing powers and was believed to be a stone capable of warding off evil spirits and negative energy. It symbolised fertility and growth and was often associated with royalty. As time progressed, the emerald gemstone continued to increase in popularity. It soon became known as a token of good luck and prosperity; it also was used to ward off sicknesses and to protect the wearer from disease.

Nowadays, emeralds continue to represent and symbolise many of the same things that they did back then. A token of love, harmony, and growth, they represent all of the qualities a happy marriage should have. Factor in the unique and one-of-a-kind characteristics of its colour and rarity, and you can understand why an emerald makes for a very sought-after engagement ring. 


Can You Put a Price on Love? 

Many people are concerned with the implications of a stone as rare as an emerald. They worry if scratched emeralds can be repaired and if so, how. There is often a lot of hesitation and reservation regarding highly coveted emerald engagement rings, especially because of their cost.
