A 14K Yellow Gold Natural Zambian Green Emerald & Earth Mined Diamond Wedding Band Ring. The perfect gift for the May birthday or Anniversary.
Emerald, known for its ravishing green hue, is a variety of the mineral beryl. Emerald is one of ‘the big three’ colored gemstones, including ruby and sapphire. Emerald is the birthstone for those born in the month of May and is a symbol of rebirth, promoting foresight, good fortune, and youth. With a hardness rating of 7.5 to 8 on the Mohs scale, emeralds make exceptional gemstones for all types of jewelry. Naturally emeralds are on the rare side and quite valuable.
To many, emeralds are also believed to encourage growth, peace, and balance. Green, by nature, is the most calming of all the hues on the color wheel, and emerald with its soothing green color offers relief from eye strain and stress. This gem was often used to decorate sacred images as well.
