Those born in the month of June are lucky to claim the pearl as their traditional birthstone, but anyone - regardless of their birth month - can be a pearl lover.
Pearls are a very rare and quite unique gemstone, as they are the only gem material formed from the sea and found within a living creature, a shelled mollusk. Unlike other gems that need to be cut or polished before use, pearls require no special cutting or polishing to maximize their enchanting beauty. Pearls are glistening ornaments that are stunning in the way they naturally form.
This unique gem is known to symbolize the beauty that comes with earned wisdom and resilience. The versatility of pearls empowers women to create their own style statements. A symbol of elegance and great taste, pearls have been a staple piece for some of the most powerful and iconic women throughout history, including royals like Queen Elizabeth and Kate Middleton, actresses like Audrey Hepburn, and leaders like Jackie Kennedy, who once famously said, “pearls are always appropriate!”. Pearls have also been celebrated in some iconic and highly-recognizable pieces of art, including Vermeer's "Girl With a Pearl Earring".
