May Birthsone Jewellery

One of Egyptian queen Cleopatra's favourite gems, the green emerald is the birthstone for May. Emeralds have always been associated with fertility, love and rebirth – certainly according to the ancient Egyptians - but modern interpretation links them to wisdom, growth and patience. The finest emeralds are a vivid, deep shade of green and are more valuable. However, they are also very brittle. In fact, come across a flawless emerald and you could be sitting on a fortune.
