Here in Portland, spring might have officially sprung. We’re not totally sure, because the days in Oregon tends to vary wildly between “warm and sunny” and “I’m so cold, why is it still raining?” One of the things we love most about spring is seeing the flower shoots pushing through the earth to soak up the delicious sunshine. The beautiful, vibrant green embodies the lush green of the elegant emerald, no matter the context.
While we love the idea of celebrating a birthday in May with an emerald tiara, we know that the cost might be a bit prohibitive (for anyone who isn’t royalty). That doesn’t even take into account being able to get your hands on one!
This Diadem belonged to Duchess of Angouleme and is now property of, and displayed in, the Louvre Museum. It’s value is immense not only because of the exceptional stones used for its creation but also because of the fact it is one of the few pieces of jewelry of the period that remain in their original state.
We don’t seem to have any tiaras in stock at the moment. However, here are a few of our favorite pieces currently available to inspire you in the name of springtime:

Like many gemstones, emeralds have a multitude of meanings stemming from different cultures and beliefs. In mythology, emerald is the stone of the goddess Venus, resulting in the association of emeralds with romance. Emeralds are said to bring passion, bliss, and unconditional love! Legend has it that wearing emeralds can give you the ability to foresee the future and see the truth. It has also been believed that emerald has the power to cure disease and protect against evil.
