Emerald Engagement Ring Meaning

4th January 2023

by Semrah

The beautiful rich green hue of emerald is often associated with luck, hope, and May birthdays. Emeralds are loved by the rich, powerful and famous, and were once a prized possession of Queen Cleopatra of Egypt. They are often used within jewellery and hold symbolic significance, but what does an emerald engagement ring mean? We reveal all in this article.


What are emeralds?

Emeralds are a variety of the mineral beryl and get their beautiful green colour from trace amounts of chromium and vanadium. They have long been paired with diamonds and used to adorn jewellery, with emerald diamond rings held in high regard and often used as engagement rings.

Emerald Engagement Ring

The origin of emeralds

The love of emeralds originated in 1500 BC Egypt. The Egyptians believed emeralds held great healing powers and served as a symbol of immortality, fertility, rebirth and eternal youth. Queen Cleopatra of Egypt was passionate about emeralds and owned an extensive collection. Today, emeralds are mined all across the world, such as in Columbia, Zambia, Brazil, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe. Experts believe the highest quality emeralds come from Columbia, where the country's natural emerald deposits are the richest.

Emerald engagement ring meaning

If you’re considering emeralds over diamonds to propose with, you may be asking “what does emerald symbolise?”

Emerald engagement rings have many meanings and represent luck, love, peace, and hope. Offering an emerald to the one you love shows intent for a happy and blessed marriage and the rich green hue of emerald represents new beginnings, whether that be in love or life. It is the deep symbolism and the beauty of the stone, which makes emerald engagement rings a good choice for a marriage proposal.

How to choose an emerald ring

Like any engagement ring, personal taste and preference is the most important thing to consider when buying an emerald engagement ring. After all, an engagement ring is for life. Emerald engagement rings are a good choice for those looking for a unique and colourful gemstone engagement ring.

Emerald colour

For any piece of gemstone jewellery, colour is the most important thing to consider. Emeralds with an intense, vivid colour are the most valuable and prized stones. Gemstone colour is measured based on hue, tone and saturation, with high-quality emeralds having an evenly distributed colour.

Emerald shape

The most popular emerald shapes for engagement rings tend to be emerald-cut. This beautiful, elongated appearance and step-cut faceting of emerald-cut emeralds make them so special – offering each stone a stunning depth and sparkle. Other popular shapes for emeralds are round emerald engagement rings and oval-cut emerald engagement rings. All of these shapes look great in a solitaire setting or as an emerald halo engagement ring.

Emerald engagement ring settings

The most popular emerald engagement ring settings tend to be halo (A centre stone surrounded by smaller diamonds) or side stone styles (A larger middle emerald with smaller diamonds set on either side). This is because they offer a unique, vintage-style appeal that pairs beautifully with these verdant-hued gemstones.

Emerald Engagement Ring

The best wedding rings to wear with emerald engagement rings

Emeralds pair really well with both warm and cool-hued metals depending on the effect you’re looking for. Warm colours such as yellow gold give your rings a really vintage feel so if your partner enjoys that more traditional style, opting for a gold wedding band will be ideal. If you’re into more modern styles, however, emeralds can also pair really well with cool colours such as platinum or silver. If you’re looking for a clean, minimalistic style, opt for a silver setting for the engagement ring and pair it with white gold or platinum wedding band.

The meaning of emerald engagement rings, along with their intense beauty, is what makes them so special. To find a beautiful engagement ring for yourself or the one you love, browse Diamonds Factory’s stunning range.
