“Emerald” stems from the Latin word for green, “smaragdus.” No, it’s not a pretty word, and how on earth time and language transformed it into “emerald” is a well-kept secret. What isn’t a mystery, however, is the luscious green goodness that it describes, flowing like ivy around platinum in this to-die-for eternity band. Our Emerald Eternity Band boasts .50 carats of the greenest green, encircling a size 5 US band circa 1970.

It’s really no wonder the last Queen of Egypt, the most famous of First Ladies, and the King of the World himself (yes, that’s what Shah Jahan translates to), were unequivocally mesmerized.
