With over two carats of Colombian Emeralds, this necklace was a gift for a mom and it is full of meaning. Each emerald represents one member of her family, so we engraved on the gold their initials. We also added two sapphires on the back for two loved ones who have passed away. Gold has existed since before the Earth was formed, & emeralds, native to Colombia, are unique by nature, just like a family so different individually but beautiful together.
