As it plastered all over the fashion magazines, “Emerald is the Color of the Year.” However, this can be a difficult color to wear for some so why not lean towards this color with jewelry.   

The green brilliance of an emerald could be the answer. The ancients believed emeralds had special powers of healing and longevity in love. Emerald is also the birthstone Taurus babies. A good emerald can become a signature piece that will last for years in the form of rings, bracelets and pendants.

Emerald jewelry is classified with 4 C’s in the same manner as a diamond.

  • Color

Always note the color when purchasing emerald jewelry. For increase value, look for darker hues of green with a hint of blue.

  • Clarity

Besides being dark in color, fine emerald jewelry should at the same time be translucent. Opaque emerald stones, even if they are dark and less expensive lack long term value. Opaque stones offer the least refraction of light and lack brilliance.

  • Cut

An emerald ring´s stone is further enhanced by its cut. Stones can be faceted into shapes such as square, pear, and round. Experts consider the ideal cut to showcase an emerald ring´s tint is rectangular ("emerald" cut).

  • Carat

The actual carat weight is the lowest factor to look for in emerald rings. A large carat weight does not mean it is a valuable stone without the other “C´s."

 The fashionable way to blend an emerald for casual days  is with the chic styling of the authentic Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Saleya PM Tote Bag. This style and pattern are not seen that often and causes an instant craving.  

The stunning design comes in a beige/navy checkerboard coated grainy canvas that is extra durable. Smooth cowhide leather trim and gold tone hardware finish it off.

These colors certainly deviate from the traditional Louis Vuitton handbags and the used Louis Vuitton Saleya PM is certainly perfect for the warmer weather months. This one is a choice of Tara Reid. There are sporadic appearances in the pattern simply stating “Louis Vuitton Paris.”

The pre-owned Louis Vuitton Damier Azur is shaped as a bucket tote. It has dual rolled leather handles with gold tone links attaching it. It can be carried in the hand or over the shoulder.

The zip top opens to a spacious interior is lined in light beige Alcantara fabric and features two wall pockets including a cell and an open flat one. There is ample space for carrying all personal items.  

An authentic Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Saleya PM Tote Bag can go to the office, on vacation and even be a daily bag to pair up with an emerald or any other color choice.
