Lucky enough to be born in May? Then prepare to treat yourself with a must-have birthstone - Emerald. This month we’ve picked Laura Whitmore - born in May and a firm fashion favourite with the Rachel Jackson team - as our birthstone girl. We love Laura's versatile style - from a boho Glastonbury look to a chic red carpet outfit, Laura's look is effortlessly cool.
As well as being May’s birthstone, rich green emerald is often gifted for 25th and 55th Wedding anniversaries, and is said to bring good fortune and love to the wearer – sounds good to us!
We particularly love emerald paired with gold – and the rich green tones make this gemstone a really versatile piece of jewellery, perfect for wearing all year round.
