May Birthstone Jewelry

The Birthstone for May is Emerald

May birthstone jewelry is usually set with natural Emerald, one of the rarest and most valuable gemstones. However due to human rights and environmental issues around mining, lab created gemstones are becoming popular which are just as beautiful and of course flawless compared to mined gemstones.

Traditionally Agate is the alternative birthstone for May and in more modern times, also the lovely apple-green Chrysoprase gemstone, and green is the May birthstone color.

Emerald or Agate birthstone jewelry is an ideal personal and meaningful gift for your friends and relatives with birthdays in May, as well as jewelry set with any green gemstones, crystals or beads.
