Emerald, king of the beryl family, has been regarded as a mystical stone since antiquity. According to legend, one could see into the future by placing an emerald under the tongue. Worn on the person, it could protect against evil spells and cure diseases. Magical and curative properties aside, it has been prized for millennia for it's incomparable verdant color. Pliny the Elder put it best when he wrote of the emerald, "Nothing greens greener..." (a loose translation of his thoughts, we're sure). This fabulous vintage engagement ring is fashioned in platinum and features a 1.2ct emerald flanked by tapered baguette diamonds.
