Emerald, the birthstone for May, has been beloved for millennia, evoking rebirth and renewal. From the poetic description of Ireland as “the Emerald Isle” to the vibrant green of the famed gemstone itself—the May birthstone emerald has captured hearts and minds through the ages.
 Variations of this rich green colour suggest soothing, lush gardens. Legend has it that emeralds have the power to make its wearer more intelligent and quick-witted, and it was once believed to cure some diseases. Today, it's the gemstone given for the 20th and 35th wedding anniversaries.
