June Birthstone: Pearl

Happy first day of June - it finally feels like summer! June birthdays claim Pearl as their Birthstone and, as we know, pearls are a woman's best friend.


This enchanting gemstone originates from water - lakes, seas, and oceans from all around the world. It is the only organic gemstone ever found on the planet and its value is contingent upon its size, hue, weight, and shape. Due to its white colour, pearl is associated with purity, innocence, and femininity. Some believe that pearls convey love, luck, and peace and bless new life beginnings. No wonder they have become a popular wedding accessory! However, pearls also come in a range of colours, including purple, black, pink, green, chocolate, and blue. What contributes to the colour of a pearl is the thickness of nacre - the substance that evokes the iridescent effect, as well as the type of oyster the gemstone comes from.
