Traditionally the birthstone for May is Emerald. Green goes with everything; every plant has green leaves no matter the color of the flower.
Emerald stories state it is the stone of abiding love, domestic bliss, and loyalty. It was associated with faithfulness and devotion. It was supposed to eliminate negativity in relationships, even to the point of removing that negative partner!! Lore has it, that Nero would watch his gladiators through an emerald crystal.
So, if you were searching for a colored gemstone to have as your focal point of your engagement ring, maybe Emerald is the right choice for the abiding love and domestic bliss we all would desire. What a story your ring would have!
