Stars took to the red carpet at this year’s Golden Globe Awards in all-black ensembles, taking a stand against gender inequality and sexual harassment in Hollywood. But in a sea of black dresses, some added extra meaning by wearing emerald jewellery.

Not only are emeralds a beautiful stone, but they also have a secret meaning.

Emeralds have long been a symbol of hope, mercy, compassion and growth.

The precious green stone has been held in high esteem since ancient times and is steeped in superstition. The ancient Egyptians believed the stone stood for fertility and rebirth. Whilst Aristotle thought the gemstone would help find support for a new venture.

On a night where everything held more significance, it’s hard not to read into the presence of emeralds. Whether they were worn because of their connotations or simply for their beauty; we loved the abundance of emeralds on show.
