Born in May

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

DESCRIPTION: This silver bracelet features the letters M A Y, and has four small green gemstones that dangle from the chain.
DATE:
 late 1950s
CURRENT OWNER OF THE ITEM:
 Alona Tester (nee Phillips)
STORY/ABOUT:
Anthea Phillips (nee Hannaford) was born in May, and May is the month for Emerald birthstones. This was a present that was given to for her birthday or Christmas  from her parents when she was about 10.
As I do have an Auntie May (actually a great aunt) in the family, if I didn’t know the story behind this bracelet, it would be easy to assume that “MAY” was a name, and not the month, but it isn’t in this case.
