May Birthstone - Emerald

May Birthstone - Emerald

Did you know that the emerald is the traditional birthstone for May?

Emeralds have long been associated with fertility, rebirth, and love.

They occur in hues of bluish green through to green and are a variety of beryl, a mineral species that includes aquamarine.

Emeralds were first discovered in Egypt, dating back to 330 BC.

Cleopatra was known to have a passion for emeralds, and used them in her jewellery.

As the birthstone for May, emerald jewellery makes a wonderful birthday present, anniversary present or push present for those born during the month of May.

If you are thinking of proposing to your May love, emeralds also make beautiful alternative engagement ring stones.
