The fresh, bright green colors of spring are captured in the soft light refracting through the gems of emerald jewelry. The intense green color of emerald bursts out like the buds of spring transforming into velvety green leaves. Emerald is the birthstone of May, the month of rebirth and celebration of life. An emerald pendant makes a perfect gift for Mom on Mother’s Day. A pair of emerald earrings or an emerald ring is a special and thoughtful gift for that May birthday girl.
