Emerald, May’s Birthstone
If your birthday falls in the month of May then your birthstone is the glamorous green gemstone, the Emerald.
Emeralds are a variety of the mineral beryl and are the most beautiful intese and radiant color green.
Emeralds represent beauty and constant love.
In top quality, fine emeralds are even more valuable than diamonds and certainly have more character.
Emeralds are also the chosen gift for the 20th or 35th wedding anniversary. Upheld as a symbol of devotion, contentment and undying love, emeralds traditionally have been thought to protect and renew relationships.
Emeralds are popular with brides who want to express their individuality. Take a cue from Jackie Kennedy who received an emerald ring from John F. Kennedy.
Although emerald is nearly as hard as sapphire and ruby, this gemstone requires special care when wearing and cleaning. Avoid impacts and contact with harsh chemicals, and cleanse with warm water and a soft brush or soft damp cloth.
