“The Most Important Diamond and Emerald Tiara”

Emerald, the birthstone of May, carries a rich green color and radiates an enviously beautiful, vibrant tone. They are considered to be a symbol of rebirth and love (making them great gift ideas, hint hint). Little known, emeralds are actually the rarest gemstones and are typically found in Colombia, Brazil, Afghanistan and Zambia.

And talk about celebrity status! From Queen Elizabeth to Beyoncé, emeralds have graced some of the most beautiful and admired women of the world. 

In Queen Bey's words, "Pretty hurts." I guess that's how it feels to have Emerald Envy!!

Happy birthday to those celebrating this month!! xox, Ashley
