Go Green With the Season’s Most Covetable Gems

 

If the last time you sported anything of color was while wearing your team uniform in high school, there’s a new mandatory reason to make an exception to your must-blend rule (what’s that about, anyway?); emeralds are one of the hottest trends in fine jewelry, and everyone from Carrie Underwood to Angelina Jolie is going green.

A covetable gemstone since ancient times, a fine emerald is often categorized as more valuable than a high-quality diamond of the same carat weight, and is a much less expected option to wear or give as a gift. This season, liven up a simple black dress (you know you have plenty) with a classic, statement-making emerald. Not only will you wear the investment piece for years to come, you’ll score points with your lineup of daring, fashion-forward friends—and it’s always nice to feel like part of the team (Curt Parker Jewelers, 10192 Conway Rd., Frontenac, 314.989.9909).
