What is the history of the emerald?
Coveted for their lush green colour, emeralds have soothed souls and excited imaginations since the days of inca kings and pharoahs, and were the favoured stone of Cleopatra. Its color reflects new spring growth, which makes it the perfect choice of a birthstone for the month of May. It’s also the gemstone for 20th and 35th wedding anniversaries.
