What is the pet birthstone for May?
Pet Birthstones by Month – May. Emerald is the birthstone for all pets born in May. Emeralds are such a gorgeous and natural looking gemstones. Their green colour comes from trace amounts of chromium, you can get a precise breakdown here. The word ’emerald’ comes from ancient Greek for ‘green gem’. Emeralds were originally mined in Egypt but Columbia is now the biggest producer producing anything from 50 to 95% of the annual gems. Emeralds are the rarest gemstone and are prized above all for their colour, the deeper the green the more valuable.
May Birthstone Meanings
It is the gem colour for all Taurian pets . This is for pets born between April 21st – May 20th. The favoured stone colour of Cleopatra, I think she was even buried with one. The Romans dedicated this stone to their Goddess of love, Venus. The green is a symbol of growth and spring and all things verdant, and of course love.
For love is the thing that binds us forever to our pets. The unconditional love is a deep, deep loss but that eternal bond continues forever. And although they are not with you every day they are always there in our hearts.
For me emeralds will always have very emotional links and memories. My cat Midnight has emerald eyes, she’s definitely a witches cat with her green eyes and black fur, her sister Pumpkin has orange eyes. My Mum’s engagement ring stone is an emerald, my Dad gave it to her to symbolise their love for the Emerald Isle they no longer lived in. And who – of my generation – could forget Dorothy and her brave pooch battling to save her friends and get back home to Kansas? I used to pretend I had a dog like Toto and was off to see The Wizard of Oz!
Birthstones and losing a pet.
Whatever month your pet was born being able to use that colour in a piece of memorial jewellery can be very comforting. I have my April’s ashes in a Tiffany Ring, an Eternity Ring and a Silver Teardrop. And whilst I wear the rings daily I save my teardrop pendant for days when I need an extra boost, it helps me to channel some of April’s general gorgeousness and gets me to put my best foot forward, even if I’m not really feeling my best.
Birthstone Pet Memorial Jewellery

It can make this difficult choice easier for some people.
