Responsible sourcing is at
the heart of our operation
Emeralds have been revered across all religions for its spiritual power and beauty. It is believed to be the oldest gemstone ever known to mankind. Cleopatra loved emeralds so much that she owned her own mines. The Incas and Aztecs worshipped emeralds in their temples, whilst Chaldeans believed the heart of an emerald contains a goddess and the Mughals carved important religious scriptures on an emerald.
An emerald nourishes the heart chakra and is referred to as a gemstone of successful love. Its soothing green colour provides healing energy and calms tired eyes. Emerald is believed to be the growth crystal and is symbolic of birth, development and creation.
When you work with emeralds most of the process is done by hand, right from the way it’s mined, while being cut and polished and set into a timeless piece of jewellery.
Like our individual stories every emerald has a story to tell, their unique character comes from the presence of inclusions also called ‘jardins’ which helps trace an emerald’s origin and journey.
Meraki emeralds are responsibly sourced from Zambia and Colombia and cut and polished at our lapidary in Jaipur. Emerald cutting is an intricate process and is valued skill passed on from one generation to the next. Our craftsmen have inherited this art from their ancestors and have years of experience in unleashing the true colour and lustre inside an emerald.
We aspire to be one of the first companies to produce emeralds completely traceable from mine to market and hence we bring emeralds to the market directly from the source. We work with emerald mining companies and our network of reputed gem dealers to ensure our emeralds have followed a sustainable journey.
We handpick each emerald for our high jewellery and fine jewellery pieces; they go through a process of strict quality checks to ensure we use the finest emeralds to create your jewellery pieces.
A reputed International lab confirming its origin certifies each Meraki emerald and we aim to champion transparency and confidence in the emerald trade.
