You know that moment in the Wizard of Oz when the movie goes from black and white to color? It’s the Emerald City!!! There is a reason it’s not the Ruby City or even the Diamond City. Emeralds are breathtaking! No matter what shade of green, they seem to be deep pools of light and luminosity.
The enchantment of emeralds fits right into the season and into a winter wardrobe. I love working with these multi-faceted stones because they take the center stage. An emerald in a ring or a necklace just pops and whether you wear it on bare skin or clothing, emeralds don’t hide!
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that emeralds have a bit of a reputation. Fragility and expense are often cited, but the truth is, you can have your emeralds and truly wear them whenever you want, as long as they are set properly and their mountings provide a little protection at the corners and fragile areas of the stone. There are emeralds at every price point, so you don't have to be "green with envy".
December is definitely the emerald month. Okay maybe not officially, but look around – green is having its moment! It’s where your eyes travel on a gray day or in a snowy landscape – anything green pulls you in!
So, be a standout this season when you dress to celebrate and experience the gorgeous glow of green in distinctive designs without taking a trip to Oz!
