It is time for a Birthday GEMOLOGUE GIVEAWAY! I am so happy to be born at the beginning of May – the trees and flowers are in full bloom, the weather is great, and it is the month of the emerald birthstone! Being 20 times rarer than diamond, emerald symbolizes new beginnings, loyalty, hope, peace, and security. The perfect gemstone to accent my individuality and balance the vibrant and energetic personality of mine!
There’s a special place for emeralds in my heart and I have even created an emerald shopping guide to help all of my followers choose their perfect emerald jewel! I was so happy to attend the exclusive GEMFIELDS masterclass about emeralds! As a gemologist, I am interested to know more about geology, geographic origin, history and responsible sourcing of emeralds.
Today, on my birthday, I would like to share my love for emeralds with you! Participate in my Instagram GIVEAWAY and win a lavishly illustrated and exquisitely designed book “Emerald: Twenty-one Centuries of Jewelled Opulence and Power”! lovingly signed by the author, Joanna Hardy, who has also written the famous “Ruby: King of Gems” book.

Just a handful of rough emeralds! Have you ever seen a #roughgemstone? I’m amazed by the miracle of transformation – how different it looks after it’s cut and polished! Delighted to have been a part of @gemfields masterclass, knowing that all the beauties I’m holding are responsibly sourced. Just a couple of interesting facts about buying #emeralds: – Emerald is an investment! Next to a #diamond, one-carat emerald will look larger than one-carat diamond because it weighs quite a bit less. But if you want the true beauty of emerald to shine, then you’re going to have to invest in at least 5 carats. Before you decide to buy, find out where the emerald was sourced and obtain the certificate #emeraldring – Remember: emerald is fragile! #Emeralds are relatively hard stones, but they are brittle and if mistreated can chip, scratch and even break. When choosing setting for your emerald, you will need something like a bezel setting that offers utmost protection and supports the stone completely #emeraldjewelry #mayfairlondon Head to the link in my profile to continue reading a comprehensive guide to buying an emerald! @LizaUrla #jewelleryface #gemologue #gemfields #gemfieldslovescolour #emeraldrough @maxcisottiphotographer
