As per the records, emeralds were first discovered about 4,000 years ago in Egypt. It is a variety of the mineral beryl. Most emeralds are highly included and it is extremely hard to find “clean” emeralds. As Gemfields describes “unlike most gemstones, the mineralisation of emeralds can only happen when two different rock types with contrasting characteristics under unique conditions come into contact with one another, which makes it one of the rarest gemstones. For Zambian emeralds, it was the specific combination of the 1.6 billion year-old high-grade metamorphic rock named the Talc Magnetite Schist and the younger 500 million year old intruding pegmatite.” The result is a rich and saturated green color, from bright green with yellowish undertones to a vibrant green with bluish undertones.

Long associated with Spring and birth, gloriously green emeralds have an extensive history of healing and supernatural powers.
Rare and beautiful, emerald easily earns its reputation as “The Jewel of Kings.” The list of celebrated royalty who conspicuously displayed this green gem includes no less a figure than Cleopatra. Indeed, she may have done a great deal to popularize that connection. The ancients considered these gemstones sacred symbols of fertility and immortality. Reportedly, Cleopatra adorned herself and her palace with emeralds and also gave them as gifts to foreign dignitaries. Most likely, she intended this as a display of wealth and power.
Emerald symbolism encompasses not only royalty but also wit, eloquence, and foresight. Today, emerald also serves as the May birthstone. Whatever its supposed mystical properties, this gem has always been regarded as a superior jewel. Whether the stone of kings or deities, emerald’s stunning color has brought it an honored status amongst cultures worldwide.
No gemstone, including emerald, is ever completely perfect. Most have internal imperfections, or flaws, called inclusions. Inclusions generally decrease the value of gemstones. Not so with emeralds. Many people feel that the tiny flaws add to the character of the emerald. Because the inclusions often look like leaves and vines, they are called jardin, French for “garden.” Other inclusions create a satiny appearance known as silk.
Natural flawless emeralds are extremely rare and extremely expensive. In fact, most dealers regard flaws as an indication that the stone is natural.

Randy and Kitsana Polk, husband and wife, both share a passion for fine jewelry and are the designers responsible for the fine art jewelry seen here, in their gallery in Fountain Hills, Arizona, and at art shows and events featuring exclusive jewelry nationwide.
Over the years, dozens of worldwide news stories have featured their exciting new design concepts for fine jewelry. Today, they continue that tradition, blending a contemporary Southwestern flair with splashes of color. They then add diamonds and round off the creation with both exotic and familiar colored gems – mixing the best features of the Southwest with the finest of European gem setting.
The end result is fine art – beautiful combinations that are always distinctive and never commonplace. We believe that life is too short for boring jewelry and that one shouldn’t settle for what the rest of the world is satisfied with. Jewelry can and should be fine art.
Some have even compared Randy’s designs to the most famous jeweler of all time, the late Carl Fabergé. It was Fabergé, official jeweler to the czar of Russia, who elevated jewelry-making to an art form. He created elegant designs that featured rare and unusual gem materials whose colors perfectly harmonized with the center stones.
