Emerald is May’s birthstone. The stunning green emerald is one of the most highly prized of all the gems. It is also the anniversary gemstone for the 20th and 35th years of marriage. The name comes from the Greek word “smaragdos” which means green stone. Emeralds are found mainly in Colombia, Brazil, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Wedding Day Gifts!
Don’t forget the special tradition of a wedding day gift. Men often forget about the wedding day gift and only are reminded by a trusty friend shortly before or, sadly, when the wife presents hers to him. Don’t be that guy! Surprise her with a bracelet, necklace, or earrings from CMI Jewelry Showroom, or as the bride surprise him with with a luxury watch. Celebrate the day you commit to each other to forever.
