pearlsThe June birthstone is Pearl. Pearls have been a passion and even an obsession of people throughout the ages. Only those with royal status once wore pearl jewelry, but eventually these gems were seen among all classes of people. They continue to be viewed as a mark of taste and refinement as well as a symbol of purity, and they are often given to celebrate a marriage or the birth of a child.  Pearls are nature’s perfect gift, suitable for all ages, and elegantly worn with everything from jeans to an evening gown. June has two alternative birthstones Moonstone and Alexandrite.
