Emerald has been used in jewellery making for centuries, it has a beautiful vivid colour which makes them popular, they are rarely flawless and inclusions are the most intriguing part of the character of this amazing gem.

Culturally emerald gemstones have been popular in different cultures and have multiple meanings. The name "emerald" comes from the ancient Greek word for green, "smaragdus". The Greeks associated emerald with the goddess Venus, who represented love and beauty and in Irish culture, the emerald colour is viewed as good luck and a talisman.

The earliest emeralds were found near the red Sea in Egypt and for the Pharaohs this gemstone represented fertility and rebirth. The Mogul Emperors of India also wore emeralds because they believed they offered them protection from the gods.

Our May birthstone collection features yellow gold and silver that ensures the stunning verdant green stone not only pops but also takes centre stage.
