Emerald is one of the most famous gemstones in the world and is considered the May birthstone. Emerald has been worn and used for centuries as many have thought that it brings both intelligence and power. In fact, in ancient India beautiful emeralds can be found on treasure chests of Maharajas and Maharanis. The emerald is also thought to bring forth love as this old May birthstone poem says:
“Who first beholds the light of day
In spring’s sweet, flower month of May
And wears an Emerald all her life
Shall be a loved and a loving wife.”
Emerald is thought to bless those who wear it with promising love. Furthermore, many Christians have used the emerald to symbolize faith and hope. Emerald today is used primarily as the May birthstone. The May birthstone is a beautiful addition to jewelry and has wowed people for years. The emerald makes a great addition to rosaries as well. The rosary is one of the most popular prayers of Catholics around the world. Many pray the rosary daily as it allows them to meditate on the life of Christ, grow closer with the Blessed Mother, and center their day. Adding the May birthstone to a rosary could be the addition which draws your loved one to pray more fervently and fall in love with the Blessed Mother.
A May birthstone rosary combines the beauty of the rosary with the stunning radiance of emeralds. Your loved one born in May might benefit greatly from the gift of a May birthstone rosary. If you would like to learn more about birthstones or the rosary, please read the Birthstone Rosaries Guide.
