BIRTHSTONES & ANNIVERSARIES
As the gem of spring, an emerald is a perfect choice for the May Birthstone. It’s also the gem of the 20th and 35th wedding anniversaries.
There are other green gems, like tourmaline and peridot, but the May Birthstone found in these hoops is the one that’s always associated with the lushest landscapes and the richest greens. Ireland is the Emerald Isle. Seattle, in the US state of Washington, is the Emerald City. Thailand’s most sacred religious icon is called the Emerald Buddha, even though it’s carved from green jadeite.
Emerald is the most famous member of the beryl family. Legends endowed the wearer with the ability to foresee the future when an emerald was placed under the tongue, as well as to reveal the truth and be protected against evil spells. The gem was once also believed to cure diseases like cholera and malaria. Wearing this gem was believed to reveal the truth or falseness of a lover’s oath and make one an eloquent speaker.
