Pearls are the traditional birthstone for June. As you probably know, they are formed inside the tissue of a living mollusk (either an oyster or a mussel), so they are considered gems but not stones. White and cream are most common, but black and gray pearls are increasingly common.
What you may not know is that there are many ancient myths associated with pearls. According to Chinese legends, pearls fell from the sky when dragons fought, and ancient folklore refers to pearls as the tears of the gods.
Pearls are said to bring the power of love, money, protection and luck and promote charity, integrity, truth, and loyalty in its bearer.
Pearls come in and out of fashion, so if you have some you’d like to repurpose, give me a shout, and we can get started on a custom piece.
