Birthstone May Emerald Initial Necklace is hand engraved with a scrolled initial and is embellished with a 'brilliant' cut sparkly Emerald in a Victoriana star-set setting. The Emerald is known to bring the wearer wisdom, growth and intelligence.

History tells us that the Emerald was a stone worshipped by the Incas, considered a symbol of eternal life in ancient Egypt, and was considered the favourite jewel of Queen Cleopatra. The Emerald has been around in many cultures for over 6,000 years and was sold in the markets of Babylon as early as 4,000 B.C.

Inspiration

The Emerald gemstone got its name from an ancient Persian word that translated to the Greek as Smaragdus, meaning "greenstone". Although most commonly considered green, Emeralds occur in various hues, from yellow-green to blue-green, with the finest being a pure verdant green hue.

According to legend, the Emerald protects against danger and gives the wearer a strong heart. It is perfect gift for your loved one who has the Emerald as their Birthstone.

May's Gemstone Splendor: The Emerald Initial Necklace from London

Immerse yourself in the intricate craftsmanship and profound symbolism of our Birthstone May Emerald Initial Necklace. Crafted in the heart of London with unwavering attention to detail, this necklace is a testament to the passion and dedication that goes into hand-making jewellery that lasts a lifetime.

Each piece, created uniquely upon order, undergoes an elaborate finishing process, elevating its elegance. To ensure authenticity and a hallmark of supreme quality, every necklace bears the distinguished symbols: our revered Maker's Mark, an indication of Traditional Fineness, the Millesimal Fineness stamp vouching for metal purity, the iconic Assay Office's seal, and the Date Letter indicating its year of creation, all verified by the esteemed London Goldsmith's Company Assay Office.

But beyond the craftsmanship lies the heart of the piece: its inspiration. Rooted in the profound emotion of presenting a significant gift, this necklace aims to be a tangible memory. A memory that resonates with love, gratitude, and the joy of unforgettable moments, allowing its wearer to carry these sentiments close to their heart.

The radiant Emerald Initial at its core spans approximately 1.8cm by 1.8cm with a profound depth of 1.3cm. Tailoring to personal preferences, it comes in a range of chain lengths from the delicate 16" to a more statement-making 24". Each necklace is further adorned with a hand-tied Freshwater Pearl on the clasp of the diamond-cut curb chain, a delicate touch that exudes charm.

Our love for gifting transcends the piece itself. Each necklace is presented in an elegant traditional jewellery box, accompanied by a soft suede pouch, ensuring its protection and longevity. A beautifully crafted note card is included to add a personal touch, waiting to bear your heartfelt message. Tying it all together, quite literally, is a sophisticated grosgrain ribbon that wraps the box.

The Birthstone May Emerald Initial Necklace is not just a piece of jewellery; it's a story, a sentiment, and a legacy. Eternally cherished. For those dearest to our hearts. Forever.

Precious Metals & Responsibility

All of the Silver and Gold is recycled. 

18ct Yellow Gold : (750 parts of Gold per thousand)

9ct Yellow Gold : (375 parts of Gold per thousand)

Yellow Gold is alloyed with copper and silver to strengthen and give it longevity.

The shade of the Gold depends on the Gold content. Therefore, the 18ct Yellow colour is richer than the paler Yellow Gold.

Sterling Silver: 925 hallmarked Sterling Silver

Gold Vermeil: a layer of 18ct Gold Plate of at least 2.5 microns over the top of Sterling Silver.

Gold Vermeil is a layer of 18ct Gold Plate that will eventually wear away over time.

The speed of this wear is affected by elements such as being exposed to water, heat, chlorine, natural body oils, products and perfumes.

I know it’s tempting to wear your jewellery while swimming, showering or at the gym, but it should be avoided.

And it’s best to put your jewellery on after applying your make-up and lovely scent.

With all of my Bianca Jones jewellery,  I believe in creating forever heirlooms, putting people and the planet first. My pieces are either made straight into metal, hand-carved in wax or using CAD and cast through the ancient process of lost-wax-casting locally here in the UK. All of the Silver and Gold is recycled. And each piece is hand-finished with care and love.

  • Bianca created me a beautiful bespoke necklace with my children’s initials. I love her jewellery, I have bought several pieces before and always recommend her to friends. Delicate pieces beautifully made. Love her style and the quality is amazing!

    Tessa McGinness
  • Bianca makes beautiful, stunning jewellery but what makes her really wonderful is the kindness and thoughtfulness she shows when you need any assistance deciding what to purchase. Excellent service from start to finish and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough. This wasn’t my first piece from Bianca and it won’t be my last. Classic and timeless they will all last me a lifetime. Thank you so much!

    Nicola Hunter
  • Absolutely adore Bianca and her extraordinary work! She crated the most superb engagement ring (piece of art for) my my beautiful bride-to-be. Even in spite of being in Australia and Bianca being in the UK, communication throughout the entire process was flawless. I couldn't recommend Bianca highly enough. Big love from Australia! ♡

    Brodie Dear
  • Beautifully designed and created jewellery. Bianca helped me throughout the process to get the design right and ensured that everything was perfect. Bianca even followed up after I had received the necklace to make sure the recipient was happy with it! Gorgeous jewellery and personal service.

    Joe Laing
  • Bianca has made several pieces of jewellery for me and my partner. My first was a beautiful gold bee necklace which I literally never take off! She then made a signet ring for my partner and my engagement ring. Recently I found a special necklace I'd lost and Bianca redipped it for me and brought it back to life. She is so friendly and accomodating, we wouldn't go anywhere else now! Thank you, Bianca!

  • Bianca was an absolute pleasure to deal with...and my engraved compass charm bracelet is simply beautiful. It has become a very treasured possession. The communication with Bianca was excellent and ensured the bracelet was exactly as I wanted. I could not be happier with it and definitely hope to treat myself to more of her very special jewellery in the future!

  • Purchased one of Bianca’s necklaces as a gift for a friend and it was perfect! Such a beautiful piece and Bianca went above and beyond to get it to me in time for the special occasion. Would highly recommend! Thank you again Bianca.

  • I first stumbled across Bianca's work a couple of years ago when i was looking for a Bee necklace for my partners birthday - not only did she create the perfect design for me, she was an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout the whole procees. Since then I commisioned her to make my partners engagement ring and I/we couldnt have been happier with the results! The ring is exactly how i imagined it and get's so many comments when people see it - Bianca even kindly re-sized it without any fuss after i managed to get the measurements frighteningly wrong - Highly reccomended :)
