The year is quickly disappearing and it’s already May. For those of you born in the month of May, your birthstone is the always exquisite emerald. Long considered to be associated with love and new life, Emerald was the signature stone for Venus, the Roman goddess of love, beauty and fertility. Today, Emeralds are believed to bring wisdom and patience to the wearer of this rare gem. For some, wearing brilliant green jewellery might be a bit bright, but let us reassure you emerald is the perfect accessory – you just need the right outfit and attitude to go with it. We suggest choosing neutral tones such as grey, black and white which will really make the green colour pop. If you’re looking for examples, we’ve seen some of the hottest A-listers sporting stunning pieces of emeralds on the red carpet. Most recently, Lady Gaga and Beyonce strutted the red carpet at the 2015 Grammy awards wearing black and silver outfits with some gorgeous bold emerald accessories. In particular, we love Beyoncé’s emerald chandelier earrings – they are just amazing! And Lady Gaga, never one to be overlooked, wore a gorgeous pear shaped emerald pendant with diamond chain. If you’re feeling a bit green with envy, get yourself a bit of that stunning green style from Shiels Jewellers. Shiels has a fantastic range of natural and created emerald jewellery that is sure to be perfect for any occasion. Emulate Lady Gaga’s emerald pendant style with our Created Emerald and Diamond teardrop style pendant.

And lastly, round out your emerald collection with an elegant created emerald bracelet and natural emerald stud earrings.
Whatever you decide, you can consider a piece of gorgeous green emerald to be an investment for the future.
