Emerald is also from the beryl family, and is the most precious of the group. Only the finest emeralds are transparent. They have the most beautiful, intense, radiant green that can possibly be imagined. Emeralds have been held in high esteem since ancient times and are thought to enhance wellbeing and promise good luck. While its good hardness protects the emerald to a large extent from scratches, the brittleness of its crystal structure can make cutting, setting and cleaning difficult. However, cutters have developed a unique cut just for this stone; the emerald cut - rectangular with bevelled corners, which brings out the beauty of the stone at the same time as protecting it from mechanical strain. Julia uses emeralds of the most exceptional colour.
