Lose Yourself to the Rare Beauty of the Emerald

Deriving its name from Greece via Old French “esmeralde”, the emerald gemstone boasts a colour that is simply unparalleled…

A delicious green colour that is sure to complement any wearer, the emerald gemstone is a unique and beautiful stone that is becoming rare due to its limited availability. Due to its stunning magnificence, much legend has arisen from this gemstone such as bringing ‘good luck’ and ‘enhancing health and wellbeing’. Ancient Egyptians were also said to idolise the beauty of the emerald.

The history of the birthstone…

The birthstone came about when a connection to each of the birthstones was made to coincide with each month of the year and the 12 signs of the zodiac. With tastes, culture and society continuously advancing and changing, in our modern times the birthstone has become something many still hold close. Each month holds a different stone, and each stone has their own poem, and for this month of May which is represented by the emerald, we share a piece of the poem written by an unknown author:

“Who first beholds the light of day
In spring’s sweet flowery month of May
And wears an emerald all her life
Shall be a loved and happy wife.”

A colour for harmony, balance and elegance…

With green representing harmony, balance, growth and hope, the emerald takes on an even more beautiful connotation linked with the wearer’s physical and emotional beauty. Said to rejuvenate, nurture and encourage, many who are attracted to the deep green of the emerald admire it for its intense colour and splendour.

Modern-day royalty still revere the emerald for its deep, gorgeous green colour

Queen Elizabeth II is said to be a big admirer of the emerald gemstone, and has so many jewels she needs a special room to house it all in (not including the Crown jewels!). Another well-known icon, Elizabeth Taylor, received an emerald brooch as a wedding present paired with an emerald necklace – donning herself in gorgeous greens.

Pop culture idol Christina Hendricks, known for her role in TV series Mad Men, has the emerald as her May birthstone, which would contrast beautifully with her magnificent auburn hair. She was also spotted at an event wearing a gorgeous emerald dress that showcased her voluptuous figure flawlessly and was set beautifully against her naturally light skin and deep auburn hair.
