We travel the world in search of the finest emeralds from Columbia, Brazil and Zambia and each of these valuable communities attach significance and meaning to their green treasure.
Legends state that emerald was one of the four precious stones given by God to to King Solomon.
A Zambian man once told how wearing an emerald was believed to reveal the truth or falseness of a lovers oath and also served to make one an eloquent speaker.
In Columbia they say that the emerald allows the wearer the ability to foresee the future as well as to reveal truth and protect against evil.
Its colour represents new spring growth which also makes it the perfect choice of birthstone for the month of May.
