Ode to Emerald: 10 Blog Posts Featuring May’s Birthstone



May is nearly over, and here at JCK, we’re fortunate to spend its remaining days in Las Vegas, where each one is filled with incredible people, events, and—hello!—jewelry. But we couldn’t jet off to the Nevada desert without paying homage to May’s birthstone, which just so happens to be Pantone’s Color of the Year. (How lucky is that?) So here we have it: On Your Market’s roundup of emerald-related stories. You’ll find plenty of Pantone, fashion, and trend posts as well as our first-ever jewelry quiz. If you haven’t taken it already, go ahead and test your knowledge! Enjoy!
