In warm 14K gold, each earring features a petite 2mm verdant green emerald in a antique buttercup prong basket setting.Glamorous and always in style, these post earrings are polished to a brilliant shine and secure comfortably with friction backs. They have the most beautiful, most intense and most radiant green that can possibly be imagined: emerald green. In top quality, fine emeralds are even more valuable than diamonds. The name emerald comes from the Greek'smaragdos' via the Old French'esmeralde', and really just means'green gemstone'. Innumerable fantastic stories have grown up around this magnificent gem. The Incas and Aztecs of South America, where the best emeralds are still found today, regarded the emerald as a holy gemstone. However, probably the oldest known finds were once made near the Red Sea in Egypt.
Having said that, these gemstone mines, already exploited by Egyptian pharaohs between 3000 and 1500 B. And later referred to as'Cleopatra's Mines', had already been exhausted by the time they were rediscovered in the early 19th century.
