May - Emerald Jewelry
Emerald, with its lush green color, is the May birthstone. The ancient Romans believed that emerald, a form of beryl, defined the color green. It is found in several places around the world. Emeralds from Colombia are generally regarded as the finest color gems, although Zambian emeralds are more plentiful and affordable. Most emeralds have natural inclusions known as “Le Jardin” for their leaf or vine-like appearance. For this reason, emeralds are almost always enhanced using various methods to reduce the prominence of those inclusions, we choose to sell only the historically used colorless oil. Emeralds are a relatively soft stone and care should be used when wearing them. Since green is “on trend” anyone may choose a piece of emerald jewelry from our selection of emerald pendants, delicate emerald earrings, and emerald bracelets.
