Emeralds, a gemstone who’s popularity rages far and wide. Jeweller’s from across the world swear by the classic emerald and diamond combination, moreover keep creating modern designs. My fondness for emerald began as little girl seeing my grandfather bring home rough emeralds back home as a part of his trade. The stone’s versatility, wear-ability and richness have never failed to surprise me. It pairs perfectly well with Indian couture outfits as well as chic western outfits.
Columbian emeralds are the most popular variety followed by Zambians one used to create unique designs. Emeralds are believed to be calm and soothing to the wearer and instant uplifting agent to one’s personality.
Here are some of my favourite emerald jewellery pieces I can’t get over:

True to its virtue adorn the piece by itself and your set.
Moving on to something special, this piece belongs to a dear friend in the line of trade and is made to order. However, the fine detailing, intricacy and play od diamonds and emeralds with such a unique design left me completely mesmerised. The pendant is made with diamonds and emeralds all along, it’s delicate, trendy yet impactful.

Golecha Jewels started in the early 90’s with an aim of providing unique and realistic jewellery. Their philosophy is clearly visible in this pair of earrings set in a diamond halo and wearable with almost everything.
