FROM MUZO WITH LOVE
The characteristic green hue of emerald has been a fascination for both men and women for over six thousand years, and it remains one of the rarest and most valuable gemstones due to the many legends and prominent figures associated with it.
The Egyptian Pharaoh, Cleopatra, was known for her affinity for emeralds – she wore them not only as a symbol of power and wealth, the intense green brilliance was also the colour for rebirth and prosperity. It was amusingly coincidental that one of the most well-known and devoted patrons of emeralds in modern days, Elizabeth Taylor, was gifted an extravagant suite of Bulgari emerald jewels from her then husband, Richard Burton, while she was filming ‘Cleopatra’ with him in Italy, playing the great beauty herself. The sacred stone is seen as an emblem of eternal love in Greek mythology, and green is worn to honour the goddess of love, Aphrodite, more and more people have chosen this stone for their wedding rings in the recent years as a testimony to their undying love.
Emerald is a gemstone most tolerated for their natural inclusions that are sometimes arranged so gracefully that they complement its beauty. Yet, the most covetable Colombian treasures are those that are born with a high clarity and bluish-green body colour, which is highly uncommon. This emerald from the famed Muzo mine to be offered is endowed with this exact combination, not to mention that it weighs an astonishing 35.72 carats and is completely spared from clarity treatment. The existence of such a rare treasure is in effect unimaginable, making it a true connoisseurs gem.
