After the less than inspiring transparency of diamonds last month I was looking forward to the vibrant and lush shades of green that make up May’s birthstone Emerald! Emerald can range from a bright green to a forest green, and even slightly darker. As we’ve got Peridot coming up in a few months (August) I had to be super careful not to overlap so I’ve stuck to deep greens of a cooler shade, forest greens and very few khaki greens. The pinterest board features items and colour palettes that cover all these shades, as well as gold, peach, navy and purple.
The Birthstone series will be exploring the world of birth stones and creating a pinterest mood board filled with style ideas related to that month’s birthstone and related colours. There will be women’s fashion, jewellery, make up, accessories, colour palettes and some home decor items thrown in too. This series will be posted on the third Saturday of every month.

What do you think; is emerald a birthstone you think you could style? Is emerald a bit too vibrant for you, or do you prefer the lushness of the colour?
