Go Green This Spring With These Under-$200 Emerald Jewelry Pieces

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but during May? You can’t beat the month’s iconic birthstone, the emerald — which, ICYMI, is having a major moment. According to gemstone lore, emeralds symbolize qualities like wit and grace. (Cleopatra was reportedly a fan since emeralds were thought to encourage fertility and immortality.) But all those things aside, it certainly doesn’t hurt that emeralds, with their naturally verdant hue, are just plain stunning.

Even if you’re not celebrating a birthday this month, we’re making a case for fully embracing the green gemstone this season and beyond. And whether you’ve got a studded earscape of bling or love to layer dainty necklaces and bracelets, there are endless ways to rock emeralds. Ahead, scope out some under-$200 pieces that we’re adorning ourselves with ASAP.
