The emerald is the official birthstone of May. Emerald, to many, symbolizes rebirth and the abundance of the life force. The rich green hue brings to mind the regeneration of life in spring and hope of new possibilities.
Spring can also be seen in the network of inclusions in the depth of the emerald that the French call the jardin, or garden, because it resembles foliage. The inclusions are like a fingerprint, giving each emerald a distinct personality and distinguishing them as truly natural gemstones.
Although the emerald itself is quite durable, the garden of inclusions may make individual gems vulnerable to damage if handled roughly. Ask us for information regarding your emerald selection and care.
