As the gemstone chosen to celebrate those born in June, the pearl represents the unique wisdom gained only through experience. It is a gem believed to help balance the wearer throughout the ebbs and flows of their life. As a jewel once reserved for rulers and royalty, the pearl is a sumptuous embellishment for any ensemble from gala dresses to jeans and a t-shirt. Both a popular choice for wedding jewelry and the traditional gift for the thirtieth anniversary, pearls symbolize the generosity, integrity, and loyalty vital to the most fulfilling of relationships.
Unlike many other gemstones, no human intervention beyond simple discovery is needed to bring the fullness of a pearl’s radiance to light. Gifted to yourself or another, pearls can honor a return to one’s essence, the part of you that knows what to do. Wear them as a tribute and reminder that even something that causes an irritation can also create value and beauty. They are jewels of resilience and tenacity, magnificent and magical, just like you.
