Natural Inspiration: Forests + Emerald

Being a May-baby, emerald is my birthstone; I have naturally always been drawn to its mesmerizing hue. The color evokes memories of the archetypal forests of old fairytales, with velvety green mosses, maidenhair ferns, and the deep green canopies of the ancient trees. Worn habitually by the iconic Cleopatra and revered by the Incas as a divine stone, you too can tap into this rare gem’s mystifying beauty with these emerald-inspired pieces:

  1. Me too! I adore emerald as a May baby, and I used to think I was Dorothy…so the emerald city was always special. I love these photos.
