Classic Emerald Engagement Rings – Not a New Trend
Emerald engagement rings are not a new trend, they are a classic way to add to the ring’s circular symbolism of “love without end” with the green gem of “life” and “eternal youth”. The emerald engagement ring, as well as the ruby ring have long been famed as engagement gemstones appropriate for love and bonds of marriage. Jackie Kennedy was given a 3 carat emerald engagement ring with diamonds, and although this size and quality of gemstone ring may be out of reach for most of us, it is an example of a tasteful emerald engagement ring, Jackie being renowned for her exquisite sense of fashion and impeccable good taste.
Emerald Cut Engagement Ring & Antique Designs
There are also many diamond emerald cut engagement ring designs that use the classic square or rectangular cut of an emerald to showcase a large diamond. Often these emerald cut rings do not have anything to do with emerald gemstones and very often are extremely expensive. However there are stunning antique emerald engagement rings that use the emerald cut and are perhaps the most unusual designs you may find, like this piece from Adin Antique Jewelry, which is a French Art Deco engagement ring circa 1930 France with an 8 carat stone set in a solid platinum band for $4,250.
For an antique emerald engagement ring in a more affordable price range, Adin has this beautiful Belgian piece, art deco style, circa 1920, with mine cut diamonds and an emerald cut gem set in yellow gold and platinum band for $1,750. The gemstones in these antique pieces are thought to be Colombian emeralds.
In a slightly different style, but still antique, Adin has this pear shaped emerald diamond ring that’s also from Belgium circa 1930 and is set in 18k yellow gold. The central diamond weighs about 0.50 crt. and the emerald about .75 carts. There are also 4 brilliant cut diamonds as accents. The piece costs $3,250.
