From Cleopatra to the Duchess of Cambridge, there’s something about royalty and emeralds. Perhaps it comes back to their stunning green color but emeralds have been mined for over 4000 years and are associated with an impressive list of mystical powers and uses! They were considered a symbol of eternal youth by the ancient Egyptians. More recently emerald has become synonymous with loyalty, new beginnings, and serenity, making it a meaningful stone for a gift as well as a beautiful gem to adorn lovely pieces of jewelry!
Russian Emerald symbolism encompasses not only royalty but also wit, eloquence, and foresight. Emeralds are made from beryl. They get their green color from trace amounts of chromium and/or vanadium. Unlike the other precious stones, which can be found in a variety of colors, emeralds are the only evergreen, though their hues range from yellow-green to deep jade.
