Emerald is a captivating gemstone, and makes a striking and elegant choice for an engagement ring, and if you were born in May it's the ideal gemstone to be gifted. The word emerald is derived from the Greek smaragdos via Old French esmeralde. Its meaning is simply green gemstone. It is such a unique jewel that a special cut was developed just for it: the emerald cut.
