The green stone of kings, the emerald. Revered by the rich and admired by the subjects, the stone has a historic connotation of royalty and wealth. The emerald can be found on many priceless antiques from the days of kingdoms. The brilliant and beautiful green glow is highly sought after. Emeralds are made from a group of minerals called beryl. The emerald and its color represent beauty, life, and prosperity.
For those born in May, or for those who simply admire its beauty and symbolism, emerald jewelry is a thoughtful and meaningful gift. Emeralds are the birthstone for May and have a long history dating back to ancient Egypt. Worn by pharaohs and nobility, the gem symbolized power, and wealth, and was believed to possess healing properties.
Today emeralds are associated with love, rebirth, and prosperity. The vivid green color of the stone is caused by trace elements of chromium and vanadium which vary from light to dark green depending on the quality of the stone; with fewer inclusions being more highly sought after. Emeralds remain pervasive in popular culture often chosen as engagement rings or pendants due to their rich hue and illustrious backstory.
