About a Brand -Jewelry- by Priyanka Sippy
The May birthstone is the emerald, a stone associated with fertility. rebirth, hope and love. With a world torn apart by a crisis that transcends borders, these are words that resonate with a new meaning. Ancient Romans, it has been stated, have dedicated the emerald to Venus, the Goddess of Love and Beauty.
Fabergé has collaborated with Gemfields, a leading supplier of responsibly sourced colored gemstones, to create some magnificent pieces of jewelry. The 500-million-year-old emeralds are mined from their Kagem Mine in Zambia, the world’s largest emerald mine, owned in partnership with the government of Zambia. The master jeweller traces its roots back to the 1800’s when the foundation was laid for one of the most renowned jewelry houses in the world, in 1842, by Gustav Fabergé.
Some breathtaking pieces from their emerald collections have been handpicked by EE to showcase in our About a Brand-Jewelry feature this week. All of the pieces trace their roots to the original creations by the House. Take a walk through history and prepare to be enchanted.
