The timeless beauty and elegance of emerald jewelry is undeniable. Dating back as early as 330 BC, emeralds have long been desired by those of wealth and influence for their intense green hues and mystical powers which accompany their beauty. Evoking a sense of rejuvenation, SuperJeweler's May birthstone collection was chosen as Pantone Color of the Year 2017 - Greenery and is gifted for 20th and 35th wedding anniversaries as well as May birthdays.
When shopping for May birthstone jewelry, it is important to remember that emerald jewelry ranges in color including yellow-green, light-green, shamrock and dark emerald green. The more vibrant the May birthstone is in color, and the less included, the more valuable the emerald stone becomes. Emeralds are known to have visible inclusions, but unlike diamonds, there are no 4 C's to describe the characteristics of emerald jewelry because emeralds are all about color!
Commonly found in Colombia, Austria, India and Egypt, May birthstone jewelry symbolizes new beginnings, love and protection. Emeralds, by nature, are the most calming of all gemstones and have long been desired by style icons likes Elizabeth Taylor and Jackie Onassis Kennedy, who were drawn to the elegance and allure that emerald jewelry exudes. Designed to last a lifetime, the SuperJeweler May birthstone jewelry collection consists of everlasting statement pieces masterfully crafted to be passed down for generations to come including stunning emerald earrings, breathtaking emerald necklace styles, eye-catching emerald bracelet options and timeless emerald ring styles. Today, an emerald ring is a popular choice for an alternative version of the classic diamond engagement or wedding band due to the gemstones meaning and durability. Emerald is a very sturdy gemstone, however, if you are active, your emerald jewelry is most secure when crafted in a 14K white gold, rose gold, yellow gold or platinum setting. When cleaning emerald jewelry do not apply heat. It is not recommended to clean emeralds ultrasonically or with steam because approximately 90% of emeralds are oiled. Instead, clean your May birthstone jewelry with cool water, soap and a soft brush.
