Emerald The name emerald comes from the ancient Greek word for green and is the green to greenish blue variety of beryl. If a stone is “too light” to be an emerald, it is called a green beryl, although there is no agreement as to exactly where this distinction applies. Emeralds have been mined since 330BC and were used in Cleopatra’s jewelry, as well as by royalty throughout the world. Emerald is the birthstone of April and the stone of the 20th and 35th wedding anniversaries.

Enamel Enamel is a coating applied to metals using high temperatures to produce glassy vivid colors. This technique has been used throughout time, by the ancient Persians, ancient Egyptians, in China, Rome, Greek, Celtic territories, and the Byzantine Empire. Key styles include the cloisonné technique, known as the "cell technique," where are placed in a desired pattern and the spaces are then filled with enamel, as well as Champlevé, where patterns are inset on a thicker plate. Guilloché , associated with both Fabergé and Cartier, is symmetrical engraving produced by the Rose-Engine machine, invented in the early 1800s.

Pear Shape The pear shape, also known as teardrop shape, dates back to 1475 when Lodewyck van Bercken invented both the diamond polishing wheel and the pear shape that it enabled. Ideal pear shape symmetry is a length to width ratio of 1.5:1. In a ring, pear cuts can elongate the appearance of the finger, and in earrings, pear cuts can give the appearance of water droplets or movement. This shape holds more color than a round and is typically faceted in the brilliant style to provide maximum sparkle.

David Webb David Webb founded his eponymous company in 1948 in New York, becoming known for whimsical animal motifs including zebra, snakes, tigers and panthers among others. Before his passing in 1975, Webb was firmly established as a Hollywood favorite, with famous clients including Elizabeth Taylor and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
