Emeralds glow with a stunning green, just as rich as the many shades of green that nature displays during late spring. Whether you’re wearing an emerald as a May birthstone ring, wedding, engagement, anniversary ring, or just as a beautiful accessory, an emerald is an elegant choice.
About May Birthstone Rings
From the times of Cleopatra and before, emeralds have been fashionable. The Spanish Golden Age might well have been called the Emerald Age, since Spanish loot from the Americas included vast numbers of emeralds. Emeralds represent love, immortality and calmness, and they are said to have healing properties and to promote balance, all great qualities for a soon-to-be marriage.
May Birthstone Ring Designs
Emerald is the green variety of the mineral beryl and is the most valuable green gemstone. Unlike other many other stones, some flaws, known as inclusions, are accepted even in very even high-end emeralds, as long as they don’t appear as surface scratches or weaken the stone structurally.
Timeless Eras - During the Art Deco period, emeralds were a popular accent stone. Emerald rings lost some of their popularity in the 1950s but came roaring back during the 1960s and 1970's, a time of large diamonds and gemstone jewelry.
- Anniversary Rings - Emeralds are traditional gifts for 20th, 35th, and 55th wedding anniversaries, as well as May birthstone rings.
- Durability - Emeralds rate a 7.5-8 (out of 10) on the Mohs Hardness Scale, making them one of the more durable gemstones available.
- Gorgeous Hues - Emeralds have a rich, lustrous glow as the light reflects inside the stone without creating rainbows or sparkles.
