Those fortunate enough to have been born during the month of May have emerald as their birthstone. While the simple mention of this fabulous gemstone evokes images of nobility and royalty, emerald has been undergoing a transformation of sorts recently. Instead of the neartranslucent, faceted gemstones that we have become accustomed to seeing, jewelry designers are increasingly embracing emeralds with rougher cuts in matte gold settings. The result is a more bohemian look that many find more approachable and interesting on a primitive level. These designs may not be all shiny and formal, but they do retain the wonderful color that emerald is known for in jewelry that can be worn every day. Emeralds are the perfect green, and they make a remarkable addition to any piece of jewelry. Come find dazzling gemstones of all shapes and sizes at 1402 Hancock Street, Quincy Center.
