Spring Ahead with Emerald

Spring Ahead with Emerald Spring is here, and just in time with the lush greens of nature, comes the birthstone for the beautiful month of May: the emerald.

Emeralds are some of the most popular stones, for those with and without birthdays in May. Some notable people who have emerald as their birthstone include musicians Lenny Kravitz and Stevie Nicks, actors Clint Eastwood and Lisa Kudrow, athlete legends Yogi Berra and Willie Mays, and US presidents John F. Kennedy and Harry S. Truman.

Spring Ahead with Emerald Green, symbolizing love and rebirth, is linked with emerald due to the stone's gorgeous hue. Revered by those who worshipped Venus, this stone was believed to aid in fertility. Another notable admirer of the stone was said to be Cleopatra who wore emeralds as her stone of choice, with vibrant green stones as part of her collection.

Indeed, the deeper the green, generally the more prized the stone becomes. Emeralds are found frequently with inclusions, however these inclusions or lines and fissures in the stone do not distract from the beauty of the mineral. Many emeralds are treated to enhance the green of the stone, so that it may sparkle and shine that much more in a setting of a ring, necklace, or earring.

Today, you can be like Cleopatra or celebrate your own personal Venus with the gift of emerald. Come in today to Schmidt Jewelers to explore our collections!
