May birthstone: 35 enchanting emerald jewellery pieces

Bring out your inner green goddess with this mystical gemstone

The May birthstone Emerald has enchanted royalty for centuries, who revered the green stone for its mystical and magical properties – when worn, it was said they had the ability to cure illnesses. Queen Cleopatra is credited with having the world’s largest ever collection of emeralds – she believed the stones brought her clear thought and health throughout her reign – while the Inca emperors would wear them as talismans to ward of negativity and bring peace of mind. It turns out there was some scientific truth to their beliefs – we now know that surrounding yourself with the colour green has been proven to alleviate stress. Here’s our pick of the best emerald jewellery to celebrate May birthdays.
