June Birthstones – Pearls and Alexandrites

In the radiant month of June, we delve into the exquisite realm of pearls and Alexandrite’s. These two gems capture the essence of elegance, mystery, and natural beauty. Join us as we explore the allure and significance behind these stunning gemstones.

Timeless Elegant Pearls, the enchanting treasures of the sea, have been revered throughout history for their ethereal beauty and timeless allure. Unlike other gemstones, pearls are organic gems formed within living creatures, primarily oysters and mollusks. They are the only gems created by living organisms, making them a truly unique gift from nature. Symbolizing purity, wisdom, and love, pearls have been cherished for centuries. From ancient Egyptian queens to iconic figures like Coco Chanel, pearls have adorned the necks of women of grace and style. Today, pearls continue to be an emblem of elegance and sophistication.

Unlike pearls, which have a long-standing history, alexandrite’s are a relatively recent addition to the world of gemstones. Discovered in the 19th century in the Ural Mountains of Russia, Alexandrite’s are renowned for their remarkable color-changing properties. Under daylight or fluorescent lighting, these extraordinary gemstones display a mesmerizing blue-green hue, but when exposed to incandescent light, they transform into a captivating reddish-purple. Due to their rarity, natural alexandrite’s are highly valuable. While originally sourced from Russia, today, these exceptional gems can also be found in Brazil, Sri Lanka, and East Africa. With their captivating colors and extraordinary optical properties, alexandrite’s make for breathtaking centerpieces in rings, pendants, and other jewelry pieces.
