Emerald Engagement Rings

Typically green and full of sparkle, emerald engagement rings are quite impressive. They are so impressive that Spiderman's Green Goblin would be...er...green with envy.

Emeralds are a particular type of gemstone and are commonly used as a birthstone or in unique engagement rings. They usually come in most shades of green but they can lose color when strongly heated.
