Zambian Emeralds Take Hollywood By Storm


Coloured gemstones such as the emeralds from Zambia’s world-beating Kagem mine in Lufwanyama were in the spotlight at this year’s glittering Oscars Awards in Hollywood.

A regular on red carpets everywhere, fine emeralds have taken on renewed popularity thanks to the promotion by London-based Gemfields, which owns 75 percent of Kagem in a model partnership with the Zambian government.

US TV host and style blogger Louise Roe, who took over Gemfields’ Instagram Stories for the big night, gave us a rare glimpse behind the scenes at the Oscars, to share her favourite looks.
