Julianne Moore chose to shine in green Emeralds at the pre-Oscars party celebrating Elizabeth Taylor’s jewels in Los Angeles. This necklace is known for its bewitching beauty. It was gifted to the great actress Elizabeth Taylor by Richard Burton as their wedding gift when they were on location for Cleopatra in Rome.
The fine actress loved this necklace very much and she wore it many times in her lifetime. She fondly chose this necklace to wear at the great event when she accepted the Oscar award for Best Actress for her movie “Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf” in the year 1967. This magnificent necklace features big and bold emerald pieces surrounded by white diamonds.
Now, most of you might be thinking that why did Julianne chose emeralds over so many other jewels from Taylor’s collection. This is certainly due to the lush green color which no other gem stone shows. Since very ancient times, they have been studded in jewelry and are responsible for sensuous pieces of jewelry.
Emerald is the birthstone of May and also the wedding anniversary gift of the 20th, 35th and 55th year of wedding. This stone is prone to have inclusions and a flaw free emerald is very rare. Some safe treatments are done in labs to get a flawless emerald. The lovely green hue of this gem stone makes it easy for jewelry designers to combine it with other colored gemstones. Its combination with white diamonds is very common, yet very popular and stylish.
