It's May...Time for Emeralds

Vintage 1960s Emerald Green Rhinestone earrings

It is May and time for the emerald to shine...or at least emerald green rhinestones. Emeralds are the traditional birthstone for the month of May. According to the American Gem Society, emeralds are a symbol of rebirth, and are believed to grant the owner foresight, good fortune, and youth. (Can I please have a bucket of emeralds right now!) In the Victorian era, emeralds were worn and given as a sign of hope. When wearing the appropriate stone for your birth month, birthstones are thought to bring good luck.
