Emerald is one of the big three colored gemstones, alongside sapphire and ruby. Emeralds come in a variety of green tones ranging from yellowish-green to bluish-green, and often have a satiny "glowing" appearance in the light. Tiny inclusions in the stone actually help create this glowing satin effect. The finest emeralds were historically mined in Colombia, but today many high grade stones are also found in Zambia and Brazil, among other places. Emerald is the birthstone for May.

Sapphire is one of the classic big three precious gemstones, alongside emerald and ruby. Sapphires come in every color of the rainbow, except for red! Red sapphires are what we call rubies, but both are made of the same mineral, corundum. Traditional blue sapphires are the most highly prized, especially in royal or cornflower tones (the bluer it looks, the better). But pink sapphires are also very popular in recent years. Other colors include yellow, green, orange, and really any other color of the rainbow (except red!). Sapphire is the birthstone for September.
