June Birthstone - Pearl

June Birthstone - Pearl

Pearls are one of nature’s most precious objects.

Formed within the soft tissue of shelled molluscs, they are composed of calcium carbonate.

These small and inconspicuous objects are highly prized and coveted around the globe.

Their glistening exteriors are highly valued and natural pearls are very rare. Many of the pearls on the market today are cultured, meaning that they are given a helping hand to grow. A piece of mantle tissue is transplanted into a recipient shell, causing a pearl sac to form.

Round and smooth pearls hold the most value, however, other shapes can occur.

Pearls can be found in fresh and salt water and thanks to different culturing techniques, they can occur in a vast range of beautiful colours.

Pearls can be made into any type of jewellery that your heart desires – pearl earrings, pearl rings, pearl necklaces, pearl pendants, Pearl Cufflinks and pearl bracelets (to name a few).

As the birthstone for June, pearl jewellery makes a wonderful birthday present, anniversary present or push present for those born in June.

Jewellery can be crafted from natural pearls, Akoya pearls, Tahitian pearls, South Sea pearls, freshwater pearls, black pearls, pink pearls and any other pearl you may like.
