A Gemstone For Every Occasion
Every gemstone is unique, millions of years old, and has occurred naturally. The different varieties have been loved throughout history because of their beauty, and the story they had to tell. The Ancient Egyptians wore them, as did many of the Kings and Queens of old. The Knights and their Ladies, celebrities, or the famous people of an era. Aquamarine, Emerald and Morganite are varieties of the mineral Beryl. They bring their own beauty and charm to our rings, and other items of jewellery stocked by International Diamond Brokers.
The beautiful Aquamarine is a pale blue gemstone, with shades of green from traces of iron that have been absorbed into its structure. Aqua is Latin for water, whilst marine means the ocean. True aquamarine is a pale turquoise colour. Similar to the tropical seas whose waters ebb and flow onto pure white sand. Naturally making us think of Paradise. The Aquamarine is the perfect ring to be worn on holiday… and every other day too!
The Emerald is one of our most precious gemstones. Its distinctive green colour comes from chromium, and again, traces of iron. It’s probable that Emeralds were mined in Ancient Egypt, more than three thousand years ago. Whilst people in the Medieval era wore them because they believed that the Emerald had protective powers. During the sixteenth century when the Spanish invaders reached Central and South America, they discovered that the Aztec and Inca Empires were rich in gold and Emeralds. The stones were thought to be sacred, and often carved into jewellery or small goblets. Some of the finest Emeralds we have today come from Columbia. Like the Gachala Emerald, weighing 858 carats. Whilst there is also the traditional belief, that wearing an Emerald will bring love into our lives. So why not treat yourself to an Emerald ring, like the one in the photograph below? An elegant, and sophisticated, item of jewellery.
Morganite is a pink or purplish pink gemstone. It was first identified in 1910 and named the following year, in honour of the financier and banker, J.P. (John Pierpont) Morgan. The main sources of Morganite are Brazil, Madagascar, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the United States of America. It is traditionally believed to attract love, and keep it safe. The perfect reason to wear the faerytale, Morganite ring in the photograph below!
