Emerald ring styles hold an undeniable quality of timeless beauty and elegance. Long desired by the rich and famous for their mysterious powers and glamorous hues of green, an emerald ring, also known as the May birthstone ring, dates back as far as 330 BC. Style icons like Elizabeth Taylor and Jackie Onassis Kennedy were drawn to the allure and elegance which exude from an emerald ring. Emeralds, known for harmony and security in love were chosen as Pantone Color of the Year 2017 - Greenery. An emerald ring is a popular gift for May birthdays, as emerald is the May birthstone, and is gifted for 20th and 35th wedding anniversaries.
