Happy Birthday, June babies!
Those born in June are lucky enough to have one of the most iconic birthstones: the pearl.
Pearls are unique in the world of gem-stones. They are the only birthstone formed organically by living sea creatures, and they require no faceting or polishing to reveal their iridescent natural beauty. Pearls are timeless in their popularity: La Peregrina (The Wanderer) is regarded as the most beautiful pearl in the world, and was passed from its discovery by an African Slave in the 1500s to European royalty such as Mary I to Napolean and, more recently, Elizabeth Taylor. Audrey Hepburn sealed their reputation as a contemporary style staple with her iconic pearl-collar-and-lbd ensemble in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Sometimes formed for years by oysters, pearls appropriately symbolise the wisdom that comes with age and experience.Traditionally, they are also associated with beauty, innocence and purity.
