Did you know June officially has more than one birthstone? June is here, and now we can appreciate beautiful sunny days, crystal clear waters and warm coastal beaches. This is the best time to incorporate organic themes and vibrant colors to your wardrobe. Most June babies connect well with freshness of sea waters, cherishing Natural Pearls as their official birthstones. In addition, an extremely rare and novel, alexandrite is also a revered birthstone for June-born. One of the most distinguishing characters of alexandrite is their red to green color change.
First discovered in Ural Mountains of Russia in 1834, imperial alexandrite received its name from Russian Czar Alexander II (1818-1881). Splendid and spectacular, these green and red transforming crystals treasure a dignified history as they resemble precious emerald and ruby, seen under different light sources. Early Russian jewelers were highly fascinated by alexandrites studded in gold and platinum statement settings. One of the most intriguing features of this June birthstone is its color changing ability. Representing a sparkling green or bluish-green in daylight, alexandrines exude subtle shades of red like raspberry red in artificial and incandescent light. They measure 8.5 on Mohs scale of hardness and are considered stones of good omen. Metaphysically, this versatile birthstone engenders affluence, stability and long life to the owner.
Since natural alexandrite is scarce, the American National Association approved of Pearl to be another birthstone for June. Since then, both alexandrites and pearls create magnificent birthstone jewelry ensembles. For several centuries, pearls have been acknowledged for their purity, virtue and most organic origin. They are organic, and emerge from living organisms, inheriting the color of shell and/or living mollusk (oyster) in which they evolve.
Deeply saturated with unique luster and luminosity, pearl jewelry is a must-have in most women’s jewelry collection. Categorized as natural and cultured (Akoya), pearls come in abundant colors, sizes and shapes. Pure white, silver, cream, golden, rosy pink, lavender and black are just a few hues pearls exhibit. These sea crystals contribute to awe-inspiring Red Carpet arrivals on your favorite A-list stars. They have been adored for their elegance and classy appearance by royals throughout history. Queen Elizabeth and Cleopatra were known to own world’s most breathtaking pearl earrings and necklaces.
Early Greek mythology believed pearls to be the tears of God and thus believed to be treasures of jewelry connoisseurs. Exotic off-white and black pearls symbolize fidelity and consistency in friendship and love. They are considered highly effective in treating stomach and heart-related problems. The serenity of pearls encourages peace, composure and balance in your life.
