May's birthstone jewellery is Emerald & Chalcedony.
Emerald - Emerald is a stone of inspiration and infinite patience. It is a life affirming stone with great integrity. “Known as the stone of successful love” it brings domestic bliss and loyalty. It enhances unity, unconditional love and partnership and promotes friendship.
The first known emerald mines were in Egypt, dating from at least 330 BC into the 1700s. Cleopatra was known to have a passion for green emeralds, and used it in her royal adornments.
Chalcedony - Blue Chalcedony is the colour of shallow pools of water reflecting the sky as winter gives way to spring. It marks the beginning of life and emotion, and is a colour of faith and trust. The Light Blue colour ray helps us reflect on, question, and relax in our acceptance of the life we have. As early as the Bronze Age chalcedony was in use in the Mediterranean region, chalcedony seals have been recovered dating to circa 1800 BC
