Our collection of birthstones features gemstones ethically-sourced from around the globe and set in an assortment of jewelry styles, all designed and crafted here in the Texas Hill Country.
The emerald birthstone is a verdant green gem whose name comes from a Sanskrit word meaning “the green of growing things.” Legends gave emerald the power to make its wearer more intelligent and quick-witted. The first known emerald mines were in Egypt, dating back to over 300 B.C. Cleopatra was known to have a passion for emerald, and the stone was featured in many of her royal adornments. Emerald is the most famous member of the beryl family and this collection’s vivid green color creates a stunning statement when contrasted with our sterling silver and 14K gold designs.
Our emerald jewelry comes in a collection of May birthstone rings, charms, pendants and earrings. Crafted in a variety of styles from our classic Spanish scroll motifs to the swirls and flourishes of our Cherished Birthstone Rings and touches of twisted wire in some of our other favorite looks. So whether you want something simple or like the intricate scrolling styles we’re known for, there’s an emerald setting you’re sure to love for many years to come.
