Every month of the year has a birthstone assigned to it, and May is no exception. This month, the Emerald has the honor of being the celebratory gem of all your loved one’s birthdays. The iconic emerald signifies rebirth, youth, and good fortune; all beautiful representations of springtime in Baton Rouge!
Did You Know? Emeralds are recognized as one of only four recognized precious gems, along with diamonds, rubies, and sapphires.
The emerald shines bright with a well recognized, vibrant green color that is known and loved worldwide. This month, how about giving the gift of flowers that pay their respect to this green gem? The cymbidium orchid is one of the most elegant and graceful green blooms, and this Green Orchid Cube is a modern take on the traditional orchid offering. Bear grass and black rock provide a fitting throne for these royal looking blooms, while the low glass container is appropriate for any home or office, and adds a touch of grace to any environment.
Emeralds are found in 29 countries across the globe, including in the United States. However, since discoveries have been exceptionally rare – and none in Baton Rouge – a green plant is another way to celebrate the Emerald honorees in style! Of course, we are all about the green here at Billy Heroman’s. If you would like to give a traditional green plant, we have a wide variety that will not only delight your May birthday recipients but will continue to remind them for months to come of how precious you consider your relationship with them.
Although giving emerald gemstones may not be in the cards this year, giving something spectacular from another of nature’s beautiful creations is a perfect way to show your friends and family how awesome they are. Come into Billy Heroman’s today to design an emerald bouquet as gorgeous as a priceless gem.
