June's Birthstone

I love June's birthstones because that is the month I was born.

With the choice of gorgeous natural pearls or color change Alexandrite, those with a June birthday are lucky to be able to pick from these beautiful gems. Whether for a June birthday or just because you love one of these gems, we would love to begin a custom project incorporating these stones into beautiful jewelry. 

Pearl present their beauty as shining spheres and lustrous baroque formations. You can set them into seductive strands or highlight them individually in a gorgeous ring or pendant. Pearls are simple and purely organic. The first mention of pearls in historical texts dates back to China in 2206 B.C. Pearls were first cultured by Kokichi Mikimoto in Japan in 1893.

Alexandrite is nature's magic trick changing from bluish green in daylight to purplish red under incandescent lighting. Alexandrite is hard and durable making it perfect for a custom project. This gem, named after Czar Alexander II was first discovered in Russian's Ural mountains in 1830. Most modern Alexandrite gemstones are mined in Sri Lanka, East Africa, and Brazil.
