The Summer of 1000 Engagements

Robert Irwin Jewelers

According to the American Gem Society, "As the birthstone for May, the emerald, a symbol of rebirth, is believed to grant the owner foresight, good fortune, and youth. Emerald, derived from the word “smaragdus,” means, quite literally, “green” in Greek."

Emerald is a variety of beryl, a mineral that grows with six sides and up to a foot in length. It's color can range from light green to a deep, rich green. Fun Fact: Chromium is what gives emeralds their signature green color. If the beryl is touched by iron deposits instead, the result is an aquamarine. Most emeralds end up being heat treated to deepen or enhance the color. The deeper or more green an emerald, the more valuable it is. The rarest emeralds will appear to be an intense green-blue (American Gem Society).

Emerald History & Facts

- The emerald was mined in Egypt as early as 330 BC, but some estimate that the oldest emeralds are 2.97 billion years old.

- Cleopatra might be the most famous historical figure to cherish emeralds. She even claimed ownership of all emerald mines in Egypt during her reign.

- The Egyptians used emeralds both in jewelry, and in their elaborate burials, often burying emeralds with monarchs as symbols of protection.

- During the Roman Empire, it was thought that staring at emeralds could soothe tired eyes. Legend has it that the Roman Emperor Nero used to watch the gladiator fights through an emerald, as he found the green color calming.

- The purported healing powers of emeralds include lifting depression, reducing stress, promoting mental clarity, and warding off evil spirits. 

- Green was also the color for the Roman goddess of love and beauty, Venus. In astrology, the planet Venus is the ruling force over the sun sign of Taurus (April 21- May 21), so it may come as no surprise that the emerald was designated as the birthstone for May.

- The mines of Colombia remain the premier sources for emeralds in the world.

- The largest volume of emerald production in modern times comes from Brazil.

- Another place from which emeralds are frequently mined is Zambia.

- Smaller deposits of the precious beryl are also found in Zimbabwe, Pakistan, and even parts of the United States (on a very limited scale).

The emeralds affiliation with "rebirth" is still prevelant to this day, as the birthstone for May, the month in which warm weather and the blossoming new life of spring arrives. If you're looking for a sensational emerald necklace, emerald earrings, or emerald ring, there is no better way to celebrate your birthday and the start of spring than with emeralds from RIJ.

Educating yourself on precious metals is vital before you make a fine jewelry purchase. The most common precious metals used in creating jewelry are gold, silver, platinum, palladium and tungsten, cobalt, titanium, and stainless steal.

14K white gold, 18K white gold, 14K yellow gold, 18K yellow gold and 14K rose gold (also known as 14K pink gold) are the most commonly used gold alloys. 

14K gold is versitile; It is resistant to tarnish and corrosion and is durable. Pure gold is combined with other metals to create a harder, more durable alloy and to alter its color to create white, rose, or yellow shades.

Palladium is often combined with gold as an alloy to create white gold. Like platinum, palladium is a white metal that does not require plating. Occasion polishing will return both of these metals to a shiny lustrous state. 

Buyers seeking white metal often prefer platinum for their jewelry. Platinum is hypoallergenic and is four times more durable than gold. Its silvery-white surface is visually comparable to white gold, although it is noticeably heavier. Consumers can expect to pay two times more for a platinum ring than they would for its gold counterpart.

Tungsten offers consumers durability and longevity because of it's exceptional strength along with its heavy weight. Tungsten is combined with carbon and other elements to form an alloy that is 10 times harder than gold. Tungsten is hypoallergenic, and is highly scratch resistant and able to hold long lasting high polish. 

Silver is a soft metal with a white coloring and a gleaming finish. It's a by-product of gold, copper, lead, and zinc refining to make it stronger. The most common alloy is sterling silver, a blend of 92.5% pure silver and 7.25% copper. Silver is considerably less expensive than other precious metals. The finest sterling silver jewelry imprinted with a purity of .925, which indicates a ratio of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% of other alloy metals. Any silver containing less than 92.5% pure silver is not considered sterling.

Cobalt has become a popular material for wedding rings because of its durability, silvery-white shine, hypoallergenic properties and cost-effective price tag. Cobalt is typically used in men’s wedding bands and rings and is perfect for the active lifestyle. 

Titanium is a silver-grey metal that has durability and strength, but is not a heavy material. Titanium is 100% hypoallergenic. Titanium jewelry is usually lightweight, but it's more resistant to bending and scratching when compared to pieces made from other metals.

Stainless steal is not the most popular or traditional choice, but recently it has been used for mens wedding bands, necklaces, and bracelets. It is durable and has hypoallergenic properties, and beautiful silvery white color. Stainless steel is considerably less expensive than other metals.

If you need a little help and are indecisive about your selection, here are 5 special locations to take unique Memphis engagement photos.

1. The Diamond is the hardest natural substance found on the Earth.


2. Diamond is the only gemstone made of just one element – carbon. 


3. Most diamonds, found in nature, were formed 1 to 3 billion years ago due to extreme heat and pressure. These diamonds were formed 100 to 200 miles below the surface of Earth. Volcanic activity brings diamond crystals much closer to the earth's surface. 

4. A rough diamond looks so much like a pebble that most people would pass it by without a second glance. 


5. The Diamond is the most effective heat conducting material, which expands very little when subjected to high temperatures, unlike most other conducting materials. 


6. In order to burn a diamond, it must be heated on more than a thousand degree Fahrenheit and it will simply vanish, without leaving ash. Only a little carbon dioxide will be released. 


7. Many people expect a diamond to be unbreakable. This is not true. A diamond's crystal structure has ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ directions. A blow of sufficient force, in an exact direction, can crack, chip, split or even shatter a diamond. 


8. Diamonds were first mined in India over 2,800 years ago. 


9. It is estimated that only 500 tons of diamonds have ever been mined in recorded history to date. 

10. More than 250 tons of ore need to be blasted, crushed and processed to produce just one carat of rough diamond. 


11. In one-thousand polished diamonds, only one will weigh more than one carat. 


12. The largest Diamond ever found is the Cullinan with 3,106 carats. 


13. On average, each stone will lose 50% of its original weight during cutting and polishing. 


14. Diamonds come in a spectrum of colors. Colored diamonds are called “fancies”. Blue and pink diamonds are among the rarest whereas yellow and brown are among the most common. 


15. 80% of the world's diamonds are not suitable for Jewelry. These are used for the industrial purposes. 


16. Diamonds are one of the world’s, and specifically Africa’s, major natural resources. 


17. An estimated US$13 billion worth of rough diamonds are produced per year, of which approximately US$8.4 billion are from Africa (approximately 65%). 


18. The diamond industry employs approximately ten million people around the world, both directly and indirectly, across a wide spectrum of roles from mining to retailing. 


19. Global diamond jewelry sales continue to grow, increasing three-fold in the past 25 years, and are currently worth in excess of US$60 billion every year. 


20. Australia accounts for producing the most diamonds in volume. 


21. The most recent diamond discoveries were made in North America - in the Northwest Territories of Canada and in Colorado. 


22. America buys more than half of the world’s total gem quality diamonds, accounting for the world’s largest diamond market. 


23. The largest diamond ever found in the US was discovered in 1924 in The Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas – the “Uncle Sam Diamond” that weights 40.23 carats. 


24. The Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas is the world’s only diamond mine open to the public and this is a dig-for-fee operation for tourists and rock enthusiasts. An average of 74,000 visitors comes to the park each year. About one out of 100 visitors find a diamond. 

25. It is estimated that less than one percent of women will ever wear a diamond of one carat or more.
