The May birthstone is often used to celebrate the 20th, 35th and 55th wedding anniversaries. Emerald is a member of the Beryl mineral family.Untreated, natural emeralds are very rare and can be very expensive. At Julian Studio, one of our main goals is to offer our customers affordable and conflict-free gemstones that you can cherish for years to come. Our emeralds jewelry uses conflict-free, cultured emeralds (lab grown in the USA by Chatham®). Lab-created emeralds have the identical physical, optical, gemological, and chemical properties as emeralds found in nature. They are as durable, beautiful, and vibrant, but since they are cultivated in a controlled lab environment, they offer the same stunning color and clarity, with fewer flaws and without negative environmental repercussions.
