For centuries Emerald has captivated gemstone and jewellery lovers, and to this day it remains one of the most mesmerising gemstones to wear in jewellery.
Here at Rudells, our Harborne and Wolverhampton showrooms are home to a sparkling selection of emerald pendants, set in both 18ct white and yellow gold. From simple styles to statement pieces for special occasions, an emerald pendant is the perfect addition to any jewellery collection.
As a precious gemstone, emerald is abundant in beauty and colour, with its green hues renowned around the world and loved by many, including Cleopatra. With this colour comes durability and strength, measuring the gemstone between 7.5-8 on Mohs scale of hardness, with only diamond, ruby, and sapphire measuring higher.
However, care must be taken when wearing emeralds, as they can still be vulnerable to chipping and cracking when knocked by a harder material.
If you are looking for a piece of jewellery that can be worn and admired everyday and for all occasions, an emerald pendant is the piece for you (or as a surprise for someone special), as it would be less susceptible to knocks than a ring would be.
To accessorise everyday wear, choose a simple style that adds a delicate touch of sparkle with a dazzling diamond surround. For special occasions, go bold with a statement design that instantly catches eyes. Complete the look with a glistening pair of emerald earrings or spectacular dress ring.
