In our minds, the emerald is associated with two spectacular women: Cleopatra, queen of Egypt, that loved stones. And Esmeralda, who wore it as an amulet around her neck. If you’re looking for sensuality and femininity, it’s hard to do better. Needless to say, it’s a stone that we get a lot of inspiration from. . .
For thousands of years, the emerald has been subject to fascination. And even if the Babylonians used it as monetary exchange (can you imagine buying your baguette with one), during the Middle Ages, it gained momentum in the mystique: the Holy Grail, for instance, is meant to be made in emerald.
Since Antiquity, the emerald is a symbol of the power of regeneration. As a “detox” stone, it is supposed to accelerate the purification of the body and mind. Bye-bye negative thoughts and clogged livers: this is the stone of renewal and new impetus. It is also a helpful stone that favors clairvoyance, which allows to better meditate and stimulates the intellect. If you have a yoga retreat planned soon. . .
And at Monsieur?
We’ve fallen for its bright green color, and we try to highlight it in a modern way. With the Violette hoops, for instance, where it shines with a present but discreet glow. On the necklaces Rosalie, Electre, or Ela, where it becomes a star in a gold sky. On the Anneau Olympe, it is central and fascinating, whereas, on the Marius ring, it is a tryptic set. On the Anna ring, it is highlighted on a beautiful gold pedestal, which gives it a talisman look. Cleopatra would have loved these.
