Gifting Your May-Born Loved Ones With Birthstone Jewelry


Jewelry such as pendants, rings and bracelets are always a treat for anyone to receive on his or her birthday. Birthstone jewelry especially, holds more meaning to their wearers, as each birthstone has its own associated symbolisms.

Different cultures have their own lists of stones for different times of the year, such as the mystical birthstone list of Tibetan origin, or the Ayurvedic birthstone list drawn from ancient Indian medicine and philosophy. There is a list of modern birthstones, though, that reflect traditionally known birthstones in the Gregorian calendar. For those born in the month of May, the associated birthstone is the emerald.

In a poem “of an unknown author” published in 1870 by Tiffany & Co., the emerald is worn by one born in spring-the “flower month of May.” Those who wear it as their jewelry then would become “loved and loving.” The emerald is also the sacred stone for Venus, the Roman goddess of love. A true stone for love, it is used to keep loved ones faithful and is said to change color if ever that person lost his faithfulness.

But aside from being associated with love, emeralds are also believed to have healing properties. The Roman emperor Nero soothed his eyes with them while watching gladiator fights, while Pliny the Elder attributed the emerald’s healing qualities to its soothing green hue which reflects the color of nature in springtime.

Gifting your May-born loved ones with emerald birthstone jewelry gives them a symbol of constant love and health.
