Emerald, a symbol of hope and prosperity is a gemstone that stems from a long and rich historical background right dating right back from the 17th to the 19th century. It was representative of status, wealth and a person’s place in society.

Apart from this, Emerald as a stone is also known to have healing properties and to ignite passion in life, be it for a job, a hobby or love. It is known to bring freshness and vitality to a soul and to heal that which is broken. Often called the ‘Successful Love Stone’, Emerald nurtures and opens up the heart to new experiences.

Thus this rich history and symbolism of the Emerald is one of the reasons that simulated emerald jewellery has thus been on the rise with most people adopting to use this form of gemstones to fulfill their various aspirations without burning a hole in their pockets. Stones that are created in a lab chemically look identical to those mined underground but with lesser flaws as well as a lower carbon footprint. Most importantly their prices are significantly lesser than their natural counterparts and some of them are an exact representation of the natural gemstone too. For instance, Nano emerald jewelry is formed from crystals which are a relatively new type of created gemstones specially made to be used in jewellery. Their color is homogeneous such that if you bought a 100 emerald green nano stones, their color would be identical in each stone. That is the beauty of consistency in these Nano gems. Essentially, Nano emeralds are a sustainable substitution for natural Emerald gem and great part is that the lab created gems have the same properties of the natural rocks and minerals but with a limited time span. They look eternal and their energy is sometimes more powerful but with a limited lifespan of 10 to 15 years, which isn’t really bad, considering the prices.
