Birth Stone for May

You may be familiar with birthstones - gemstones that are assigned to each month. These stones come with their own meanings and have been in use since ancient times.

The birthstones we currently associate with each month are not necessarily the same ones used centuries ago. During ancient times, birthstones were related to the 12 gemstones on the breastplate of the High Priest of the Israelites, from the Book of Exodus in the Bible.

In the past, the colour of each gem was the most important feature of the stone. Modern jewellers continue to add options to the modern birthstone chart.

May Birthstone - Emerald

May’s birthstone is the emerald. Emeralds are widely admired because of their deep green colour. A great addition to any outfit!

Emeralds are known as having unique healing properties. It is said that the wearer can tell the future. In the past, emeralds were placed under the tongue to protect from evil.
