For over six thousand years, the emerald has been a gem of fascination in many cultures. A fine emerald may be two to three times as valuable as a diamond that is why it is prized according to carat. The name emerald was first translated from Sanskrit as “marakata,” as told by the Indian Mythology, which means “the green of growing things.” The name we know “smaragdus,” and eventually over time, corrupted to “emerald” which is now is believed to come from an ancient Persian word, translated to Latin. Records show that in Babylon as early as 4000 BC the stone was known and sold in markets. It is a stone that is mentioned in biblical information about the apocalypse and was worshiped by the Incas. The earliest reference to emeralds comes from Aristotle in Western literature. During business, he wrote that owning an emerald increases the owner’s importance in presence and speech as he was a great fan of the gemstone and told that it gives victory in trials, helps settle litigation, and comforts and soothes eyesight.

An emerald will prevent the falling sickness (epilepsy) if it is hung from the neck or worn in emerald rings. This is why noblemen are commended to hang emeralds about the neck of their children so that they should not fall into this complaint. Throughout time it has been believed by many cultures that the emeralds are enormously powerful stone in different ways and was also believed that the stone contained a goddess.

Emerald also plays a vital role in religion as green is the holy colour of Islam. Even in the Catholic Church, green colour has a special meaning since in liturgy it has always been considered the most natural and elementary colour. There has been evidence of its healing powers, since as far back as there is evidence of emeralds. Some believe that if the emerald is simply worn, it can heal you in many ways like helping eyesight. Some said that if people suffering from inflammation of the eyes, they should wear emerald rings in their little finger of the left hand and it would cure heal.

Gold has always been a common preference of every couple for their wedding or engagement ring in gold studied with diamond. But Platinum and titanium rings are also gaining popularity nowadays. The reason is probably they have a rendering beauty as they are embedded with diamonds and that is why they are more durable. These stones also help in enhancing the beauty of the ring.
