Emerald, the birthstone for May, is one of the most well-known of gemstones.
It represents love, hope, stability and wisdom.
Associated with nature, it is believed to help the wearer feel balanced and harmonious.
Here are some of our favourite pieces of emerald jewellery:
Dainty and delicate:
Clare emerald necklace and earrings from Honey Willow, emerald threaders by Delezhen, ombre emerald bracelet from Saturnalia Jewellery
Emeralds can look at their best in a raw, rough cut, which shows off their natural variations in colour.
raw emerald ring from rawbyoliviamar, open circle necklace from PebbleAndStoneStore, raw emerald earrings from WithoutRemorseShop, green raw emerald ring from delezhen
Last May, I celebrated a milestone birthday of my own - and I know how meaningful our own Lilia necklaces are, marking the occasion with a ring for each decade.
The Big One:
If you're looking for something seriously special, a beautiful emerald ring is hard to beat!
