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.

Chat to us about your dream emerald jewellery piece and we can sketch out some ideas and show you a selection of loose emeralds on hand. We can also source your very own special emerald.

We have a lovely range of emerald jewellery for sale online and in- store.

Visit us at 24 St Quentin Avenue Claremont or contact us to find out more.
