May: The Month of Emeralds

May: The Month of Emeralds

When they say the grass is greener on the other side they obviously meant to look over at the side filled with emerald stones.” - Vogue



If you’re born in May you not only share birthdays with Adele, Audrey Hepburn and Cate Blanchett, but your birthstone is the radiant emerald gemstone. Emeralds symbolise rebirth, growth and wisdom as well as being said to bring good fortune and youth.

Cleopatra first made the lush green stone famous, claiming the Egyptian emerald mines in 1500 BC from the Ancient Greeks. Nowadays, emeralds can be spotted on the red carpet, with the likes of Angelina Jolie and Beyonce snapped accessorising with the green gemstone.

So how do you incorporate emeralds into your daily look? Easy! Emeralds are the perfect jewel to make a simple outfit go from day to night. For a touch of sophistication, an emerald and diamond necklace is the perfect complement to a little black dress and an emerald infinity bracelet is the perfect choice to add some sparkle to your wrist.

So if you’re a May baby or just looking for some good fortune, shop Shiels Jewellers online or in-store for your own emerald jewel.
