Given their price, you might not be wearing “authentic” emeralds (that’s fine…) and you might just use emeralds as an accent with a larger, less-expensive semi-precious stone. It’s your birthstone – wear it the way you want! Finding a beautiful scarf with a bit of bright green in it will draw attention to your beautiful jewelry, and make it all look wonderfully intentional and well-planned.
Don’t forget that you can wear green accents any way that you want – a comfy pair of flats are a great option! Or maybe a subtle stripe in your summer tote…
Why yes, you’ve seen some of these dresses and cardigans before! I’m a big believer in wearing the same clothes regularly, and there’s no reason that I can’t show you a variety of ways to wear the same neutral pieces, is there?
If you love bright green, don’t miss the chance to find a scarf in the shade you like. Even in the warmest weather, a scarf can be handy when you go indoors into meat locker-like air conditioning!
Because emeralds are so very dear, you shouldn’t hesitate to mix costume jewelry with your “real” emeralds. Don’t ever let price influence the way that you wear your clothes and accessories – the only thing that matters is that you’re happy with how you look!
Looking for emerald jewelry was fascinating – did you know that some people make synthetic emerald by cooking stuff in a pressure cooker for MONTHS on end? I wonder why emeralds are so much more rare than other stones…
