Emerald Engagement Rings

Updated on January 2, 2010

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.
