A new month has arrived, which means a new birthstone is here to rule: emerald.
The vibrant green precious gemstone is considered a stone of youth, growth, and renewal and believed to evoke a sort of spring awakening within the soul. Which, in our opinion, is something we all need after this long, drawn-out winter.
Looking to bring in a bit of passion in your life? This stone has long been believed to revive it—whether that passion is related to a loved one, a job, or a hobby. It’s been used to attract love when worn or carried near the heart and often wished upon to bring back a lost love. Once used to protect against enchantment and spells, the emerald is also considered a stone of vision and intuition and has been believed to reveal the truth and the future.
Whether you believe in its metaphysical meaning or not, now that spring greenery is (finally) blooming, it’s only right that we put this gorgeous green stone on display.
Below, we rounded up 13 pieces of emerald jewelry that make the perfect gifts for the May-born Taurus and Gemini ladies in your life—and, most importantly, yourself. Check ‘em out, below.
