Emerald Green Color Range

The ideal color of emerald green is a slightly bluish, vivid green. However, there are a range of colors that qualify as emerald green. The possible hues are bluish green, green, and yellowish green. Blue is more tolerated in emeralds than any yellow modifying the color.

Worth mentioning is that the emerald color rarely shows up well in any type of media. The green found in emeralds is somewhat shimmery, and 3 dimensional. Even the media above does not do these stones justice. Green has also been famous amongst film and photography personnel for being the most difficult color to capture accurately. Especially bright, vivacious greens as per the definition of emeralds.

Types of Emeralds

Carved emeralds in tutti-frutti style by Cartier

To qualify as an emerald, the gem material does not necessarily have to be transparent. There are many fine examples of carved emeralds, however the carving-grade material is not as highly regarded as transparent facet-grade material. One of the more famous examples are the “tutti-frutti” pieces designed by Cartier in the Belle Époque era of France. Think the roaring 20s of the 1920s, but french.

Emeralds, rubies, and sapphires were carved into the naturalistic shapes when bold geometric shapes were the trend. It was a dare against the trends, and paid off tremendously for Cartier. The tutti-frutti carving became an internationally popular item, as well as a hallmark style of the brand.
