What could be a more appropriate birthstone for spring babies than a brilliant green gem? But it's not just its seasonally-appropriate shade that makes emeralds such a stand out. The May birthstone has been coveted for centuries; Cleopatra prized the gems so much she claimed all of the emerald mines in Egypt during her reign, and they haven't lost any of their royal acclaim since—Princess Eugenie famously wore the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik tiara (with it's whopping 93.7 carat emerald) on her wedding day.

To help the May birthdays on your list celebrate like royalty, we've pulled together some of the most stunning emerald baubles around, guaranteed to make them feel like a queen.
