New Emerald Fusion Collection Emeralds and Panjshir Valley Emeralds Emeralds are among the rarest precious stones that earth has to offer - and they are rare for a reason. Only exact geological conditions produce the finest emeralds. Two of the rarest earth elements, beryllium from the high continents and chromium from the seabed must collide under the perfect nexus of pressure, moisture and blast furnace temperatures to create these exquisite treasures. The Panjshir Valley, located in Afghanistan meets those conditions perfectly and offers the most beautiful and stunning green emeralds, comparable with the very finest Colombian emeralds. The purest, boldest “emerald green,” is the careful balance between hue, saturation, and brightness that only the world's best emeralds possess. Panjshir Valley Emeralds unequivocally offers the best ethically sourced emeralds from the Panjshir Valley. Working with a network of trusted miners and possessing a one-of-a-kind relationship with both the Afghan government and local tribal leaders, Panjshir Valley Emeralds ensures that all of the emeralds adhere to the highest ethical standards of responsible sourcing and fair trade, hence supporting people and country to prosper from the ground they and their families stand on.

For more than two decades Michael Michaud has perfected the craft of creating botanical jewellery by achieving the seemingly impossible: creating a mould of the most delicate, unique botanical elements, capturing infinitesimally fine and lifelike details then reproducing them as stunning, wearable jewellery using soft patinas on bronze accented with pearls, beads and semi-precious stones. The new venture between the two companies gave rise to the creation of Michael Michaud Fine Jewellery and the exploration of combining Michael’s signature green bronze hand-patination with solid 18kt gold and the most beautiful Panjshir Valley emeralds, creating breathtakingly unique and striking fine jewellery.
