Did you know that the birthstone for June is the timeless Pearl?
It’s a gemstone that holds a unique and enduring charm, often associated with purity, innocence, and elegance. What makes pearls especially fascinating is that they are the only gemstones created by living organisms, specifically mollusks like oysters and mussels.
Pearls have been treasured for centuries, symbolizing wisdom acquired through experience, as they are formed layer by layer within the mollusk over time. The process begins when an irritant, such as a grain of sand, finds its way into the mollusk’s shell. To protect itself, the mollusk secretes layers of a substance called nacre, which gradually forms around the irritant, creating a lustrous pearl.
The exquisite beauty of pearls has made them a popular choice for jewelry, both in classic and modern designs. They come in various colors, including white, cream, black, pink, and even more exotic shades. The luster of a high-quality pearl is captivating, reflecting light and displaying a soft, iridescent glow.
