June Birthstone Pearl

Pearls are the only organic birthstone (derived from a living organism) and are formed inside mollusks around a foreign particle. Cultured pearls are simply farmed pearls, where a foreign particle has been introduced deliberately into the mollusk, causing a pearl to form.

‘Pearl’ comes from the Latin word “pirum” which means “pear”, reflecting the pear shape of pearls.

Pearls are associated with purity, fidelity and integrity and are often worn by brides on their wedding day. Pearl jewelry is the gift given to celebrate 1st, 3rd and 30th wedding anniversaries.

June Birthstone Moonstone

The Moonstone birthstone is considered sacred by many cultures and is used as a dream or spiritual stone. The moon-like appearance and blue-white shimmer is caused by light reflecting off alternating layers of different minerals within the stone. There are many different types of Moonstone which can vary from transparent, through white, green, yellow-brown, grey to almost black with a shimmering effect of blue, silver or white.

High quality Moonstone is found in Myanmar and Sri Lanka, which is also the main producer of this gemstone globally. Other deposits are found in Brazil, Mexico and the USA (Americas), Madagascar and Tanzania (Africa), India (Asia) and Norway and Switzerland (Europe).

Moonstone is usually cut as a cabochon or in a moon shape to reveal the shimmering effect at its best. Moonstone Jewelry makes for a special gift for loved ones with birthdays in June.

Pearl colors depend on the type of freshwater or seawater mollusk that produced them. Moonstone colors can vary from transparent, through white, green, yellow-brown, grey to almost black with different colored shimmering effects. Light purple comes from the main color of the Alexandrite birthstone.
