June Birthstone: Pearls Meaning

June Birthstone: Pearls Meaning

The significance of birthstones goes back many years, when ancient civilizations believed that stones provided benefits such as health, strength or purity.

Each month is accompanied by a birthstone.

Why does June have 3 birthstones?

Birthstones are separated by their origin. Some come from centuries ago while others are relatively modern. The international gem associations decided that, due to the impossibility of finding some of the gems from antiquity, some modern ones will be selected.

That is why pearls are officially the June gemstone.

What do pearls represent?

Traditionally pearls have been associated with purity and integrity, that is why they are a common gift to little girls. Ancient civilizations have also associated pearls with the moon.

Nowadays, we can associate pearls to elegance and to emit a feeling of confidence and firmness. That is why important figures in the corporate and political world such as the president of Banco Santander, Ana Botín, Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank or Kamala Harris, vice-president of the United States, wear pearls frequently.

That is why we think that pearls are the ideal accessory for a woman, both for the infinite possibilities offered (Golden, Tahitian or Australian White Pearls), sizes and shapes (Baroque, Round, Semi-round) as well as the ease with which they can be combined with any outfit.
