Emerald Wedding Rings
There are people who simply cannot accept having a simple wedding ring. They want their ring to be special, to sparkle, to stand out, to make others turn their eyes for it. There is probably nothing better to serve this specific purpose than an emerald wedding ring.
Why an emerald wedding ring
Emerald is a gemstone of a gorgeous deep green shade. You might not have seen too many wedding rings with a green color spot, but those you have encountered have sure earned a place in your memory. This gemstone is quite expensive indeed, even more expensive than diamonds, but it sure worth the pain. It can serve as a spectacular base for a special ring, regardless if you intend to mark your engagement or your wedding with it. Elegance, style and beauty are three words to describe your emerald wedding ring. If you can afford to pay at least 1.000$, do not hesitate.
Because of its special green color, emerald is a gem combined most often with silver, platinum or white gold. Yellow gold and emerald is something you can rarely find on the market since the contrast is not widely appreciated. Silver and green however make a good team, mainly when a special glow is added. That special glow belongs to diamonds, which are the most popular choice when it comes to using more than one gem on a ring. So emerald wedding rings can have a square or rectangular piece of gem surrounded by a few diamond pieces or even framed. Alternatively, the gem could be shaped like a flower, a leaf, a clover or even a heart. The diamond pieces can be spread on the entire surface of the band or just only towards the half of the circle. Another model that is often ordered is the life circle wedding ring alternating tinny emerald and diamond pieces. You can have bands, simple rings of only 3 millimeter, rings with a width varying from the gem towards the opposite side reaching up to six millimeters or even rings with a one or two split shanks.
How to choose
The versatility of this gemstone is both a good and a bad thing. Imagine how difficult will you find the experience of choosing only one ring from the multitude of offers. The more gems you will want, the higher will be the price. In addition, the risk of loosing some certain tinny gems is real. Begin by searching on the internet, not necessarily for making an online order, but just to have a better picture of what could you ask from your jeweler.
