The World’s Largest Emerald is for sale

30 January 2012

Follow the Yellow Brick Road. Follow the Yellow Brick Road...We’re off to the Emerald City! Well, not literally, but we’re about to witness the world’s largest emerald being auctioned off. How much do you think this green goddess will fetch?


At the end of January the world’s biggest emerald is going up for auction at Western Star Auctions, British Columbia, Canada. Weighing in at 11.5 kilograms and around 12 inches in length, the jewel, which is called Teodora (God's Gift), has been appraised at a cool $1.15 million.


The dark green emerald, which has been described as quite spectacular, was discovered in Brazil and then sent to India to be cut. It’s now in Canada until the auction and is very heavily guarded.


Annie Haak Designs may not have such gigantic emeralds in our jewellery collection but we do have gorgeous sterling Silver and Precious Gemstone Earrings. These stunning studs are available in a variety of colours, including peridot - a lovely light green gemstone.


Our 2012 jewellery collection also features Sterling Silver and Gemstone Sparkle Rings. These fabulous rings, as seen in Grazia, will add a flash of colour and sparkle to your finger and will look amazing worn individually or stacked for maximum impact and a huge colour pop.


You’ll also find Amethyst, Onyx, Tiger Eye, Rose Quartz and Turquoise featured in original sterling silver jewellery designs by Annie Haak – this year’s collection’s a real treat for gemstone lovers!
