Emerald is a member of the beryl family of gems, and the most precious of the group. The finest emeralds are transparent, with the an almost unimaginably beautiful intense and radiant green hue. Emeralds have been thought to enhance wellbeing and create good luck for centuries. The unique cutting process of an emerald, the 'emerald cut', protects its brittle crystal structure from damage. Emeralds' beauty sing through even as cabochon stones, which Julia uses extensively in her designs. Julia's emerald pieces benefit from her use of only the most exceptionally-coloured stones, such as her emerald drop earrings.
