Discover the All-American Red Emerald: Elevate Your Collection with Our Exclusive Red Beryl Jewelry


The captivating allure of Red Emeralds, known to gem enthusiasts as Red Beryls, holds a story as intriguing and vibrant as the stones themselves. Discovered within the rugged terrains of Utah's Wah Wah Mountains in the early 20th century, these gems quickly rose to prominence, enchanting collectors and jewelry lovers with their unparalleled beauty and rarity.

Unlike their more common green counterparts, Red Emeralds are a marvel of nature found in only a few exclusive locations around the globe, making them a rare and coveted treasure in the world of fine jewelry. The gemstone's mesmerizing red hue is not only a mark of its distinctiveness but also a testament to the geological marvels our Earth harbors, inviting us to explore the depths of its natural beauty.

The Rich Tapestry of Red Emerald History

The saga of Red Emeralds begins amidst the stark, breathtaking landscapes of the Wah Wah Mountains in Utah, where they were first discovered in 1904 by the renowned mineralogist Maynard Bixby. Initially christened 'bixbite' in honor of Bixby, these mesmerizing gemstones underwent a nomenclature evolution, eventually being known as Red Beryl, a nod to their mineral family.

However, the term 'Red Emerald' has gained favor for its ability to convey both the rarity and the esteemed qualities of these gems, drawing a parallel to the green emeralds that share their structural elegance yet stand worlds apart in color and presence. This historical journey from discovery to distinction underscores the Red Emerald's unique position in the gemological and jewelry worlds.

Red Emerald: A Gemstone Rarer Than Diamonds

The rarity of Red Emeralds places them among the most coveted gemstones on the planet, a testament to their extraordinary scarcity and allure. According to the Utah Geological Survey, the rarity ratio is staggering: for every 150,000 gem-quality diamonds unearthed, only one crystal of Red Emerald is found.

This scarcity is attributed to the gemstone's unique geological formation conditions, which are so precise and rare that finding a 2-carat Red Emerald is as uncommon as discovering a 40-carat diamond. This incredible rarity not only enhances the value of Red Emeralds but also solidifies their status as one of the most sought-after treasures in the jewelry world, embodying the epitome of exclusivity and luxury.

Colors and Characteristics of Red Emerald Jewelry

Nestled within the prestigious beryl family of minerals, Red Emeralds share their lineage with such renowned gems as emeralds, aquamarines, and morganites. This illustrious family is known for its durability, with Red Emeralds boasting a hardness of 7.5 to 8 on the Moh's Hardness Scale, making them an ideal choice for jewelry meant to be worn daily, such as engagement rings and wedding bands.

The hues of Red Emerald range from a deep raspberry pink to a luscious purplish pink, their rich and saturated colors contributing significantly to their breathtaking beauty. Due to the rarity and unique characteristics of many Red Beryl specimens, not all are suitable for faceting. Instead, these gems are often shaped and polished into cabochons, highlighting their natural allure in a different form.

Our collection features both faceted stones and cabochons, each showcasing the beauty of Red Emeralds in ways that are uniquely captivating.
