Through the ancient world to modern times, emerald’s rich religious along with cultural history made it a prized stone in centuries past, but our love affair with May’s birthstone still lingers on.

Hindus composed the earliest written accounts of ruby or “ratnaraj” (“king of the gemstones” in ancient Sanskrit) and it has always been highly esteemed in Oriental countries. It is a pink to blood-red colored gemstone, a variety of the mineral corundum, with a hardness of 9.0 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness. The Mogok Valley in Upper Myanmar (Burma) was for centuries the world’s main source for rubies. There are mines in Thailand, Madagascar, Tanzania and Mozambique, among others. Mozambican rubies are often rich pinkish-red, while others have the color of “pigeon’s blood,” “pomegranate”, “China Rose” or “traffic light red.”

After many design plans the final choice was an asymmetric necklace with the 163.41-carat diamond as the centrepiece, trailing on the left side 18 emerald-cut diamonds and to the right two rows of pear-shaped emeralds. As Mr Fawaz Gruosi explains: “I chose emeralds because I love the green color and mixing it with other stones. The green gives great contrast and enhances both colors. And, being Italian, I am superstitious. Green means good luck – you will see a lot of it in my collections.”
