This month is the perfect time to sport an emerald! Not only is this green gemstone the birthstone for the month of May, it’s also the inspiration for Pantone’s color of the year! The emerald’s saturated green sparkle is ideal for the season when the trees are full of leaves and the earth is full of life, and its time-honored status as a classic precious gemstone assures that its appeal isn’t going to fade anytime soon.

There is a certain amount of jealousy towards March babies and their coveted gemstone, aquamarine, and it is no surprise. The gem is an exceptional stone with a delicate, water-like blue hue and is most often free from inclusions, leaving nothing but perfect clarity that radiates even under the softest light. That quality alone has made aquamarine one of the most sought-after stones at Gemvara.
But perhaps the most alluring characteristic of the stone is the lore behind its pristine hue. Derived from the Latin word for “seawater,” aquamarine has been part of the tradition of the sea for thousands of years.

The aquamarine is the gemstone of all young people and all those who have remained young at heart.”
With a captivation of aquamarine and a dream of warmer climates, we were inspired to create pieces evoking crystal-clear water, glittering waves and all things sea and sun. Just a few happy (and tropical?) thoughts to get us through the end of winter.
Paradise at Sea: The Quintessence Ring, in emerald, sapphire and aquamarine was inspired by the pop of green from the palm tree and the mix of the light blue sea and deep blue sky.

Relaxation on the Beach: Taking in the scenic view while sitting on a pristine white beach chair sounds perfect right now and the Matilda Ring in aquamarine, sapphire and topaz is quite the vista as well.
Manicure has long ceased to be an addition to the image. Instead, it has become an almost independent accessory. Each season the collection of nail polishes is replenished with new shades, and therefore trends. Our review will tell you what kind of manicure is going to be fashionable this summer.
Nail Polish Color Trends
Of course, it is not that easy to discern trends in the colors of nail polishes today. The stylists give themselves (and therefore us) enough freedom to choose whatever their heart desires.
Have you had your fill of April showers yet? While we know from that famous little rhyme that May flowers are the result of the seemingly endless rain, most of us could still use a little reminder of the colorful blossoms to come when we’re faced with dreary days. A poppy piece of brightly-colored gemstone jewelry can be just the thing to add a touch of vibrancy to your look on a drizzly day, and pink topaz rings are perfect picks.
It’s hard to beat pink jewelry when you want to wake up your look on a rainy day, and pink topaz rings are both brilliant and affordable options. The
