* About Green Emerald
The emerald is desired for its rich color and celebrated for its rarity.
Only a select few locations in the world, notably Columbia, Zambia and
Brazil harvest gemstone quality emeralds, elevating its value to the top
echelon of fine jewelry. For centuries, the emerald has been one of the
most coveted and adored gemstones, worn by royalty and celebrities.
The emerald with its lush, vivid green color is associated with the
Emerald Isles of Ireland because its fields are the same shade of green
as the precious gemstone. Emerald is the vivid green color of Spring
which makes it the perfect birthstone for May and is a beautiful
traditional gift for a 55th wedding anniversary.
