Give Her Emeralds That Rival Cleopatra's
The Cleopatra's Treasure Collection features over 100 total carats of gorgeous Zambian emeralds!
Have you ever heard that well-behaved women seldom make history? That saying might as well be about Cleopatra.
The Queen of Egypt surely knew how to have a good time. When she wanted to meet Julius Caesar, she wrapped herself in a carpet and was smuggled into his personal quarters. After she began her legendary love affair with Mark Antony, they formed their own secret drinking club called the “Inimitable Livers.” The two loved to disguise themselves and play pranks on the residents of Alexandria.
But emeralds were her true love. Known for having an incredible collection of jewels, Cleopatra cherished emeralds above all, wearing them in her royal adornments. When dignitaries from other nations visited, she gave them likenesses of themselves carved from emerald as gifts.
It’s these tales that have inspired our Cleopatra’s Treasure Necklace. This jewelry features Zambian emeralds that have been gently enhanced to bring out their fullest color. Zambian emeralds are more beautiful than Colombian ones, as they have better clarity and a vivid green-blue tint that’s caused by the presence of iron. Encased in yellow gold-finished .925 sterling silver, this jewelry features a large carat weight for your hard-earned buck.
While Cleopatra hasn’t been around for a couple millennia, we’re pretty sure she’d love this jewelry. Tell the queen in your life she’s worth Cleopatra’s Treasure.
