With spring already in full swing, it's high time we celebrate our friends and loved ones born in the merry month of May with some emerald birthstone jewelry.
What makes an emerald so desirable? Join us as we admire all that this fabulous gift of the earth has to offer.
The Run-Down on Emeralds
Emeralds were first extricated in Egypt around 330 BC; it was prized for its vibrancy and was used notably to adorn royalty, including Cleopatra. Incan culture featured emeralds prominently as well, and when their settlements were colonized, emeralds made their way to Spain and Asia, where wealthy collectors clamored for their share.
Physically, the emerald also possesses the ability to assuage the effects of eyestrain and can act as a powerful stress reliever. It was supposedly chosen for May due to the fact that its deep, rich color echoes the sentiment of springtime and the new growth associated with it.
