Welcome to the LM Blog! 

Every month we are going to be featuring a gemstone to give you more information on the benefits and history of the gems we use in our collections. Vibrant green and endlessly alluring, we begin our blog series, Gem of the Month, with the enchanting emerald gemstone. 


As early as 4000 B.C., emerald has been admired by many cultures. The birthstone for those born in the month of May, emerald is known as the “stone of successful love,” emerald can help to open the heart chakra, allowing you to receive love in all forms. It encourages strong bonds between you and those you care for, enhancing unity, partnership, and unconditional love.

Emerald is also a stone that brings wisdom and intuition. A revealer of truth, it promotes mental clarity and awareness, helping to bring your unconscious mind to the forefront.

Emitting a comforting energy, this vibrant green stone, offers compassion and boosts self-esteem and confidence within. When worn close to the heart, emerald is healing to all who use it, bringing brightness and balance to the spirit.

Emerald is for you if you:

  • need a confidence boost
  • have trouble concentrating
  • need help with communication
  • are looking for some inspiration for a creative or business endeavour
  • want to bring in a bit of enchantment into your life

Whether strung on gold around your neck or held in the palm of your hand while meditating, emerald is the stone to call on to boost you into a brighter future.

Stay Bright!
