Celebrating May's Birthstone: The Vibrant Beauty of Emerald


Emeralds, recognized for their deep green color, are the birthstone for May and symbolize renewal and growth. At Johnston Jewelers, we specialize in helping you find or design emerald jewelry that captures this stone's natural beauty and significance. Whether you're drawn to emeralds for their color or their rich history, our expert team is here to assist.

Selecting the right emerald involves looking for a vibrant green that is consistent throughout the stone. Inclusions, known as 'jardin,' are common in emeralds and can add character without detracting from the gemstone’s overall appearance. These features authenticate the stone’s natural origins and add to its unique story.

At Johnston Jewelers, you can choose from our collection of emerald pieces or work with us to create a custom design. We focus on making jewelry that meets your personal style and celebrates important milestones. Our experience ensures that each piece is not only beautifully crafted but also meaningful.

Proper care is crucial for maintaining the quality of emerald jewelry. Emeralds are softer than many other gemstones and should be cleaned gently with a soft cloth. We also recommend regular check-ups to ensure that your jewelry remains in excellent condition.
