Handmade birthstone jewelry is a beautiful way to celebrate the important birthdays in your life. Whether you’re shopping for your partner, child, or another special person in your life, handmade jewelry is a fantastic option.
People with May birthdays are blessed to have one of the most treasured stones for their birthstone. Emeralds are one of the big 5 gems, which include Diamonds, Emeralds, Sapphires, Rubies, and Tanzanite (previously Amethyst). These stones are all rare, beautiful, durable, and perfect gifts for just about anyone.
If you’re looking for unique birthstone jewelry that celebrates nature alongside the people you love, I have the perfect jewelry for you. Here are some of my favorite May birthstone jewelry options from my existing designs.
Of course, if you’re looking for custom Emerald jewelry to celebrate a loved one’s birthday this year, you can always contact me with your ideas for a custom jewelry commission. I’m happy to help you make your jewelry dreams a reality.
Celebrate May Birthdays With Beautiful Emerald Jewelry
Here are 5 May birthstone jewelry options for gifting this year. Or you can browse my May Birthstone Jewelry collection to see if one of the other options is a better fit for your loved one.
Emerald Loops - Emerald Hoop Earrings
Hoops are a classic style for people of all ages, and one of the most popular earring designs out there. But what if you could add more decorations on your hoops and express your personality a little more with this classic design?
That’s where my Emerald Loops earrings come in. These earrings are still lightweight and comfortable, but add a pop of green from the Emeralds at the bottom of the hoop.
Plus, these natural Emerald stones show off a range of greens and other natural colors, making them even more attractive and interesting to see. Light faceting on the stones helps these Emeralds catch the light and glitter softly in most light.
Emerald Sparkles - Dangling Emerald Earrings
If hoops aren’t your thing or if your loved one prefers a different style of earrings, these Dangling Emerald Earrings might be just the thing. Paired with a beautiful Swarovski crystal at the top of each earring, these earrings show off all of Emerald’s natural colors and style.
These earrings always remind me of Spring. The new green of grass, the leaves around May flowers, the buds and leaves just filling in the trees.
Like all of my handmade jewelry, these earrings are hypoallergenic and nickel-free. Lightweight and comfortable, these earrings are perfect for daily wear.
Petite Emeralds - Emerald Necklace
Turning away from earrings for a moment, if your May birthday loved one doesn’t already have an Emerald necklace, this is the year to fix that!
My Petite Emeralds Necklace is a beautiful option, formal enough to pair with just about any outfit, relaxed enough for daily wear. I particularly love how the Sterling Silver beads contrast the faceted Emeralds, really highlighting the beautiful shapes and colors of the Emeralds.
Not sure what size chain to get? I use an adjustable chain between 16-19 inches. That way you can wear this necklace any way you want.
Petite Emeralds Set - Handmade Emerald Necklace And Matching Earrings
Emeralds are one of those natural stones that looks incredible all by themselves. That’s why I’ve put together this matching set that really lets the Emeralds shine.
Perfect for formal events, this versatile set gives you a lot of options and is a fantastic birthstone gift. Don’t worry if your birthday isn’t in May though, this Emerald set is a great present for anyone who loves Emeralds or the color green.
Raw Beauty Set - Handmade Emerald and Sapphire Necklace And Earrings
Want something a little different, or shopping for someone that already has a set of beautiful Emeralds? My handmade Raw Beauty set of jewelry combines the natural beauty of two of the most beloved natural stones ever.
Emeralds and Sapphires are a perfect combination, showing off two of nature's most beautiful and most common colors, blue and green. Sky blue and grass green, the perfect colors for Spring and May birthdays!
This set naturally looks a little more formal thanks to the combination of stones, but it’s still laid back enough for casual everyday wear.
