Pooja Mehra Uppal, Founder and Creative Director of Kasmia Fine Jewellery (AKM Mehrasons Group) adds to our detailed research on Emerald beauties and confabs, “Gemstone jewellery is something that will never go out of fashion. Styles and designs may change, but intricately crafted, fine jewellery will always be en vogue. Keeping in mind the nature of events and how we socialise in the new normal, I think investing in daintier, smaller pieces will be all the rage. With these, one can pull understated looks at intimate gatherings or layer it up with multiple necklaces and stack bracelets for a more glamorous affair. Emeralds paired with diamonds is a timeless classic as the versatility of diamonds is truly unmatched.”
Timeless Emerald Jewellery Designs
Arpit Goyal of Ambrus Jewels, “Earlier it was said Diamonds are forever, with introduction of lab grown diamonds and many other alternatives natural diamonds have their own place even today. The rarity of this gem is unique, the shine, the brilliance and natural glamour of diamond makes it a unique gem. Today when we speak of coloured stone, emeralds have similar distinguished qualities like diamond. They are rare and mined under most harsh weather conditions. Emeralds have different quality and colour and come in different shades of green. The use of green colour and transparency marks the price of emeralds. The lush green colour of gem stone makes it unique and worth investing. Quality from mines of Columbia and Afghanistan mark the highest price. Investing in certified emeralds are equivalent to investing in certified diamonds."
Vandana Jagwani, Creative Director for Mahesh Notandass shares, “Emeralds are one of the most precious and statement gemstones. They are generally known for their calming powers and are very popular among women. The hues of emerald are more than enough to make a statement. Emeralds usually stand out most vividly, when paired with blacks, whites, metallics and pastel colours. I believe trends are going to change and we are going to bring back timeless and classic designs."

Jewellery Designer Archana Aggarwal shares, “Emerald has become an increasingly popular choice in Jewellery designs over the past few seasons. Apart from the stone’s long history among royals and celebrities, many opt for emeralds over the classic white diamonds for the brilliance it adds to the ensemble. For your big day or daily wear, a fancy emerald pendant will definitely compliment your outfit. Adding a pop of colour attracts a lot of attention to the piece and the wearer. Just a well designed Emerald earring can get you all the limelight. Today’s audience is willing to experiment and at the same time endorses the heritage, whether it is culture or Jewellery. We anticipate that this trend will continue." You could opt for a beautiful choker emerald jewellery or complement your wedding look with a long statement emerald studded necklace.
For brides who keep gravitating towards floral motifs and statement earrings and bangles, emerald encrusted designs are joys forever. Flaunt them with your wedding ensemble and pair them with designer sarees or Anarkalis as a wedding guest. These designs can never go out of style.
