A Green Garden of Delight

Farmer's MarketSpring is upon us and the salad days are here! A trip to the local green market gives us a chance to appreciate all the lush and healthy greens that are abundant at this time of year. May is also the month for emeralds and one of my favorite attributes of this verdant green gem is jardin. French for “garden,” the term jardin (zhar-DAN) refers to the beautiful inner word of emeralds. Rarely seen without this fascinating aspect, emeralds have their own unique garden that inspires awe. Come and take a walk with me on a beautiful spring day as we look at gardens both humble and elaborate.

The green market is a great place to find healthy locally grown produce. It’s also a wonderful place to look for inspiration in nature.

Girl at Farmer's MarketIt’s never too early to instill an appreciation for nature and fine jewelry! A young shopper contemplates the new blossoms of spring while wearing a Fortunoff enameled charm bracelet in sterling silver. You can count on us for age appropriate jewelry when you shop our Baby and Kids section online.

One day, she might be ready for something more sophisticated and when she is, Fortunoff will still be there:
