If you are looking to buy a present for someone born in May, you should consider something with the May birthstone, emerald. Emeralds range in colour from light to dark green, with the most valuable stones being highly transparent.

What does the May birthstone represent?

Emeralds, the May birthstone, are believed to represent balance and peace. Some even call the emerald “The Stone of Success and Love”. This is because they are believed to connect us to the Heart Chakra. To wear or to gift an emerald will bring the wearer a freshness of spirit. This is fitting for the May birthstone as Spring represents new life, growth, and fresh beginnings.

What pairs best with emeralds

Trying to figure out what pairs best with the May birthstone? When it comes to style, you should always wear what you feel the most confident in. But if you’re looking for a couple tips, the Ecksand team has your back. The rich green colour of the emerald pairs great with neutral colours. We love the crispness of ivory to help make an emerald piece pop. If you’re looking for a bolder look, we love wearing it with a rich purple or aubergine.
