Today the U.S. has been inundated by the color green; beer, clothes, food and even rivers are all green in celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day. St. Patty’s Day was originally a religious holiday celebrating Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Today Saint Patrick’s Day has become more of a celebration of Irish culture in general.

There is more to Saint Patrick’s Day than just drinking copious amounts of beer such as the tradition of sporting a three leaf clover. Which gets its origin from the fact that Saint Patrick used a three leaf clover to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagen worshipers he was trying to covert. Another tradition closely tied to this holiday is wearing the color green, which can trace its origins all the way to 1798. It was in that year that the Irish rebelled and donned full green uniforms in hope of gaining widespread public attention. Florida Jewelry.

This year why not get into the holiday spirit by donning green emeralds as well as green clothing. Emeralds have a variety of meanings or interpretations in different cultures. For instance, emerald is associated with the astrological signs of Taurus and Cancer. It is also regarded as the birthstone of the month of May. In some cultures, the gemstone is a traditional gift for the 55th wedding anniversary of couples.

Some of the top brands in the jewelry industry are releasing collections that feature rich green emeralds. Cartier’s newest collection Panthere which focuses on extremely detailed brooches, pendants and other jewelry pieces that often feature wild cats with emerald eyes. Tiffany and Company‘s Elsa Peretti Color by the Yard also features green emeralds. If you are looking for a piece of jewelery that heavily incorporates emeralds than turn to Chopard with their Imperiale Emerald Lady’s watch. This watch has emeralds around the bezel, the case and even the bracelet, truly a exquisite piece.

Raymond Lee Jewelers has many estate earrings, bracelets and necklaces that feature emeralds at amazingly low prices. We have been in business since 1983 and have become one of South Florida’s most trusted jewelry stores. Come in and see what everyone has been talking about!
