This collection of handpicked handmade May birthstone jewelry is a mix of elegant rings, earrings, necklaces, and bracelets that feature the beautiful green emerald. Some are set in silver, some in gold. Some are faceted and some are presented in beautiful raw form. And there is a range of prices to accommodate most jewelry budgets. Birthstone jewelry is a wonderful connection to our past. The practice of wearing gemstones to attune to their vibratory powers is ancient. And associating specific gemstones with birth months goes back over 2000 years and has evolved along several separate cultural paths.
