June Birthstones: Pearl, Moonstone, Alexandrite

Jun 8, 2024


If you’re a June baby, you’re graced with three exceptional birthstones. The Pearl, admired for its purity and elegance, makes stunning additions to any jewelry. The Moonstone, with its enchanting play of light, is wrapped in rich mythology, believed to bring good dreams. Then there’s the Alexandrite, a rare gem that magically changes color under varied lighting, exuding an unmatched allure. Want to make these gems uniquely yours? Remember, there’s a world of custom jewelry waiting to help you express your style with these June birthstones in more depth.

A Rich History of Beauty

The uniqueness of June lies in its three birthstones, each with a distinct color and historical significance. Traditionally, pearls were the sole gem for this month, but as gemology evolved, alexandrite and moonstone were added. Alexandrite’s enchanting color change under different light signifies the complexity of life, while moonstone, with its ghostly glow, was revered by ancient cultures as a sacred stone. You’re not confined to picking just one, though. Custom jewelry, like the exquisite pieces from Breslauer & Warren Jewellers, can incorporate any or all of these gems, creating a piece that’s as multifaceted as you are.

The Captivating Pearl

Cultivated from the heart of a living organism, pearls are unique in the gem world, embodying a raw, natural beauty that’s been prized across cultures and centuries. They come in a variety of colors, from the classic white and cream to black, pink, and even silver. Pearls are measured in grains, not carats, further distinguishing their unique place in gemology. Revered for their lustrous, soft glow, they’re often associated with purity, humility, and innocence. Whether set in a delicate necklace or a pair of timeless earrings, pearls retain their enchanting allure, making them a beloved choice for June babies.

Mystique of the Moonstone

The moonstone is a gem steeped in ancient lore and celestial wonder. You’ll find this gem enchanting with its unique play of light, or adularescence, that seems to glow from within. Rooted in ancient civilizations, the moonstone was thought to be solidified rays of the moon, bestowing prophecy and wisdom upon its wearers. In India, it’s regarded as a sacred gemstone, believed to bring beautiful dreams and the blessings of the gods. Roman mythology associated it with Diana, the goddess of the moon. Your moonstone, whether set in a ring, pendant, or bracelet, not only offers you a beautiful piece of jewelry, but also connects you to a rich tapestry of legend and symbolism.

The Allure of Alexandrite

This fascinating gem, first discovered in Russia’s Ural Mountains, is a rare variety of the mineral chrysoberyl. When viewed under different light sources, alexandrite changes color, appearing green in daylight and a mesmerizing red under incandescent light. It’s this enchanting trait that has earned it the nickname ’emerald by day, ruby by night.’ In its purest form, alexandrite can even exhibit a mesmerizing blue-green hue. This precious stone’s rarity, combined with its striking color metamorphosis, secures its spot as one of the most sought-after gems in the world. The allure of alexandrite is undeniable, isn’t it?

Customized Options

For those born in June, incorporating either alexandrite, moonstone, or pearl into jewelry can offer a personal touch and a unique aesthetic appeal. Consider a ring with a brilliant alexandrite that changes its color under different lighting, or a moonstone pendant that shimmers with an ethereal glow. Pearls, with their classic elegance, can be woven into bracelets or drop earrings for a timeless look. It’s also possible to combine these stones in a single piece for a stunning effect. Reputable jewelers can guide you through the design process, ensuring your piece honors you and your birth month. Why not make your custom jewelry a celebration of you?
