What do you love most about May?
May is when Spring arrives, like snow, our heart melts, flowers blossom and we fall in love with greenery surrounding us. Additionally, we embrace this month for its verdant and natural gemstone: Emerald. Officially known as birthstone of May, Emerald is revered for its excellent color saturation and vibrant green sparkle.
Gorgeous jade stones have been the preferred choice for royalty in jewelry, amours, crowns and swords as these divine crystals protect the owner against evil. Emerald belongs to the beryl family of minerals, which also includes ocean blue aquamarines. Reflecting richness and opulence green color, this luscious gemstone is synonymous with nature, wisdom, growth, patience, abundance, fertility, good health, spiritual stability, fortitude and improved eyesight. In fact, science reveals that human eyes see more green than any other in our color spectrum.
More interestingly, our favorite A-list stars have shown excessive inclination towards this precious stone. From Elizabeth Taylor to Angelina Jolie, starlets have walked the red carpet with emerald jewelry stunners. Here’s the scoop on dazzling green jewelry trends we can never forget:
Time-honored beauty, Elizabeth Taylor owned an incredible collection of emerald tiara, brooch, necklace, earrings and rings, gifted by then husband, Richard Burton. Some of her emeralds had been auctioned for several million dollars. Similar to Taylor, the famous First Lady and style icon, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy acquired a massive, legendary emerald and diamond engagement ring in 1953, from former President, John F. Kennedy. Her ring became the exemplar of elegance of her time.
