June Birthstones – Pearl and Alexandrite

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 🙂

Tina from TLHinspired says

The Black Pearl is a special one of a kind pendant, featuring a unique piece of water cast Sterling silver. The highlight of the OOAK pendant is the large 11mm high quality button black pearl. A perfect gift for that special person who loves fine Jewellery.


Hanna Maryam from hanakrafts says

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!


Michelle Emma Kay from EmmaKayInks says

It seems that Alexandrite ranges in colour from aqua/teal to pink to purple/indigo. This is one of my favourite colour palettes. I used it recently in this listing:

Edna from AddaSplashofColour says

This is a multicoloured bag just like the gemstone Alexandrite. Add this to a black outfit and you’ve got the wow factor. It has colour, style and convenience all in one. Great gift for someone born in June.
Melody from myVardo says

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.


Meg from TigsTogs says

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”.


Yet another fantabulous collection of gift ideas from our team shops – be sure to visit them and partake in some retail therapy!!
