June Birthstone Collecting: Which One Is Right For You?

Key Insights

Birthstones hold a special place in the world of gemstones, not only symbolizing the month of one's birth, but also carrying unique meanings, energies and stories. For those born in June, the month offers a delightful conundrum - not one, but three exquisite birthstones to choose from. Alexandrite, pearl, and moonstone each possess unique characteristics, history, and beauty that make them fascinating choices for collectors and jewelry enthusiasts. In this comprehensive guide, we'll delve into the world of June birthstones to help you determine which of these extraordinary stones best matches your style, values, and desires.

Alexandrite: Chameleon Gemstone

Discovered in 1830 in the Ural Mountains of Russia, alexandrite is a rare and magical gemstone known for its ability to change color under different light sources. This phenomenon is known as color change and is usually manifested as a shift from a vivid green in daylight to a warm purplish-red in incandescent light. Often compared to emeralds by day and rubies by night, this unique property is highly sought after by collectors and connoisseurs.

The altered stone is ideal for those who appreciate rarity and mystery. It is considered a symbol of luck, intuition and wisdom, reflecting the wearer's adaptability and inner strength.

Pearls A timeless classic

Since ancient times, pearls have been prized for their ethereal beauty and association with purity, innocence and wisdom. Unlike most gemstones that are mined from the ground, pearls are organic stones, formed inside living creatures, mainly oysters and mussels. This natural process adds to the pearl's charm and makes each pearl a unique masterpiece of nature.

When selecting pearls, you'll encounter a variety of types, including Akoya pearls, freshwater pearls, Tahitian pearls and South Sea pearls, each varying in color, size and luster.Akoya pearls are known for their classic white hue and high luster, making them a popular choice for traditional jewelry. If sustainability is a concern, consider sourcing responsible freshwater pearls, which are often more affordable and environmentally friendly. We also have a great selection of jewelry from our pearl collection!

Not only are pearls versatile, but they are also deeply symbolic, making them a favorite among the elegant and understatedly luxurious. Whether you prefer a classic necklace, delicate earrings, or a modern pendant, pearls can elevate any outfit, making them a timeless treasure in the jewelry box of a June-born person.

Moonstone Enchanting luminescence

With its distinctive “moonlight color” (a floating, milky white glow that resembles moonlight spilling over water and moving across the surface of the gemstone), moonstone is imbued with mystery and enchantment. This gemstone is believed to enhance intuition, balance emotions, and promote inner peace, and is revered in many cultures as a talisman for love and fertility.

If you enjoy spiritual symbolism and find solace in the calming power of nature, moonstone may be the ideal companion for your journey. Here we recommend our popular MOONSTONE PEAR PENDANT CHARM, the soft glow and mystical aura of moonstone is perfect for bohemian designs, but its subtle elegance can also be used for more sophisticated occasions, making it a versatile choice for both casual and formal wear.
