Handmade May Birthstone Jewelry for that Special May Birthday

Jewelry for May birthdays set with one of the birthstones for May is an ideal personal and meaningful gift for your friends and relatives with birthdays in May. Or choose a piece for yourself to wear during the month of May.

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 Emeralds 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. Green is the May birthstone color, so jewelry set with any green gemstones, crystals or beads will also make for a meaningful gift.

Browse the stunning selection of May birthday jewelry below - handmade by skilled artisans with quality gemstones. The images and links will take you to that designer's online store where you can view further information.

May Zodiac Jewelry

Another lovely gift idea for those born in May is jewelry with their Zodiac sign. May birthdays until the 21st/22nd fall under Taurus and thereafter are Gemini. If their birthday falls around the 21st/22nd, check the Zodiac sign for the year they were born, as the Zodiac dates change by a day or two each year.
