We have a lot of beautiful items at the barn right now!  To see a sample, check out the “Our Specials” page.

May’s birthstone is the EMERALD.  How appropriate of a match to the landscape turning into the beautiful green as we finish up the spring season this month.  Here are a few facts about this stone:

  • Emerald is one of only 4 recognized precious gemstones (Ruby, Sapphire, Diamond and Emerald).
  • Emeralds have a lower density than diamonds, making them appear larger/carat in size.
  • Value is determined by the stone’s color, clarity, cut and carat weight.
  • This was one of Cleopatra’s favorite stones.
