June birthdays claim two birthstones; pearl and Alexandrite. Pearls have been wildly popular in jewellery for centuries because of their natural beauty. Alexandrite gemstones are extremely rare and desirable since they change colour based on the lighting.
I asked fellow team members if they had items in their shop that represent these birthstones, and that would make great June gifts?
Here’s what team members had to say, and I must say if you have a family member or friend with a June birthday you can’t go wrong with this shopping list 🙂
This joyful all-occasions card made out of pearlescent beige cardstock and featuring a pretty pink pearl is sure to cheer your loved ones up in the early days of winter!
There are many stories of pearls throughout the world and time… Pearls are said to be symbolic of wisdom acquired through experience. One Persian legend tells that pearls were created when a rainbow met the earth after a storm….
This beautiful necklace can be worn both dressed up and dressed down. Swarovski Pearls are very hard wearing and the cream colour is warm and gorgeous. The cream pearl goes with any colour outfit and there are matching earrings as well.
I’ve always know that pearls are June birthstones as I was born in June . Alexandrite and its changing colours is new to me but I’ve been hand knitting lots of scarves where I’ve blended a silk and wool yarn with another yarn in a thick rib . These scarves all change colour too as the silk blend is variegated . The closest one to alexandrite seems to be this plum scarf . Alexandrite is said to promote warm healing energy , intuition , creativity and imagination . If you know someone who also has a birthday this month this scarf would be the perfect choice.
While not the real thing, this vintage ring may satisfy someone’s wish for a set of birthday pearls, especially if they were born in the 1970s just like this ring.
Pearls are always associated with weddings and this bracelet features not only pearls but doubles as a bridal “something blue”.
