Birthstone Jewelry: Emeralds for May Babies

Emerald hardly needs an introduction. The bluish-green beryl is the birthstone of May babies (myself included!), and the most celebrated varieties come from Colombia, Africa, and even Afghanistan. It’s said that emerald soothes worried minds and was once even believed to cured diseases such as malaria. Now, however, we know that emerald is a stunning, beloved stone belonging to the iconic Big Three—ruby, emerald, and sapphire—of America’s most popular gems. Enjoy this quintet of beauties below.
