The birthstone for June is the pearl. Pearls are unique among gemstones as they are not mined from the earth but are instead formed within living creatures, specifically molluscs such as oysters and mussels.
They have a lustrous and iridescent appearance, making them highly prized and sought after.
The rarity of natural pearls is attributed to their shimmering exteriors, a quality highly prized by enthusiasts. However, in the modern market, many pearls are cultured, undergoing a process of assisted growth. By introducing a piece of mantle tissue into a recipient shell, a pearl sac forms, resulting in the formation of these radiant gems.
While round and smooth pearls possess the greatest allure, pearls can assume various shapes. They can be discovered in both fresh and saltwater environments, and thanks to different cultivation techniques, they exhibit an exquisite array of captivating colours.
The versatility of pearls allows for their transformation into a wide range of stunning jewellery pieces, such as pearl earrings, rings, necklaces, pendants, cufflinks, and bracelets, among others. As the birthstone for June, pearl jewellery serves as an exceptional gift for birthdays, anniversaries, or as a symbolic token for those born in this month.
