Held in the highest esteem, sought after by royalty, emeralds are among the rarest and most beautiful gems. Large emeralds are far rarer than large diamonds.
Diamonds are made of carbon, the chemical building block of life itself, in its most concentrated, pure form. They have always been prized for their beauty, longevity and hardness: they are rated ten of out ten on the Moss scale. Due to their purity and beauty, diamonds have often been chosen as a gift to express love and eternal commitment.
