We love emeralds because of their history and how incredibly gorgeous they look when set in pure gold. This was one of Cleopatra’s favorite stones. It is a traditional gift for the 20th & 35th wedding anniversaries in the US and is also the birthstone for the month of May.


Use a soft micro-fiber cloth and rinse with warm very diluted soapy water. Emeralds are very often oil enhanced and therefore they should not be cleaned with any chemicals or strong soap solutions. Avoid sudden temperature changes, steaming, chemical and ultrasonic. Never clean an emerald in an ultrasonic cleaner. Avoid using commercial jewelry cleaner on your emeralds.

Acceptable treatments:

Emeralds are typically treated with oil to enhance their color and durability.
