However, the Emerald does not lose its value when inclusions are apparent. In fact, it is almost impossible to find an Emerald without inclusions. These inclusions actually add to the vibrancy of the ring, making it a perfect choice for many. The Claddagh engagement ring works very well with the emerald. The Claddagh design is an iconic symbol of Ireland and perfectly describes the a promise to be loving, loyal and to give one your friendship with a never ending band.
