If you were born in June, you’re lucky enough to have three birth stones – Moonstone, Pearl and Alexandrite. June is one of only three months that have three birth stones, and this gives you a beautiful variety to choose from.
Because, at Spirit Jewellery, we have pieces with Moonstone and Pearl, we’re going to focus on these two beautiful stones this month. If you are after the Alexandrite, we do have our Spirit Birth Stone Necklace that features it. Want to know what makes them so special, and which pieces of jewellery we can suggest for you if you’re on the hunt for something with your birth stone? Then keep reading…
This beautiful and enchanting birthstone originates from oceans, lakes and rivers around the world. Something that makes it so special is that it is a timeless wardrobe staple and is loved by women of all ages.
It was believed by ancients from the Middle East that pearls were teardrops fallen from heaven. Most of you should know by now that pearls are organic gems that can be found inside the tissue of a living saltwater or freshwater mollusk.
Pearls have long been associated with purity, humility and innocence. Many say that the June birthstone meaning is “sweet simplicity”. Therefore, pearls were traditionally given as a wedding gift. It has also been said that pearls bestow long life and prosperity.
As jewelers, we appreciate the fact that pearls are available in all shapes and sizes, as this allows us to create many variations of jewellery with the stone. Below is one of our favourites which are available on-line and in store:
Our Pearl Choker, pictured above, is available in Gold plated, rose gold plated and sterling silver and is complete with 5 genuine pearls on necklace chain. We just love how sophisticated this piece is and it truly is versatile as women of all ages can wear it. It can also be dressed up or down and just works every single time.
This dreamy stone has so many surprising benefits. Because the Moonstone has become highly fashionable, many of you will know what it looks like, but we bet that you didn’t know these few things about the birth stone?
Just like the moon, being considered as one of the most soothing influences in our modern life, the Moonstone is seen this way too. The stone is often traded between couples and is a balancing stone that has a relaxing effect on most people. It also instills peacefulness in those who wear it. The stone brings about feelings of power and stability, which is something that so many of us crave today.
This stone is considered a feminine stone, and it often has a positive impact on hormone balances. They say that it can help with physical conditions such as psoriasis and hair loss, but also with fluctuating emotions and confusions. Who knew that a stone could also be known to help ease pain during menstruation and childbirth?
We love that it targets femininity, promoting and nurturing intuition and gentleness in people, as well as compassion. Moonstone is also said to be a wonderful fertility aid – affecting the reproductive cycle, easing menstrual tension. Known for its links to the pineal gland, it can balance hormonal systems as well.
Have insomnia? Well, they say that Moonstone works wonders for people who suffer with insomnia. As peacefulness and relaxation thrive, the brain can fall asleep faster each night.
As you can well see, this beautiful stone has more to it than its beauty. But we wanted to share one of our favourite and well loved pieces with you, which is also available on-line:
Solitaire Ring, Twisted (Claw Set) – Moonstone (Round)
This sterling silver ring just radiates pure beauty. It is simple yet so effective and that’s exactly what is so well loved about it. It can be worn on a daily basis, and is a classic. It is timeless and can be passed down over the years.
This solitaire stone ring is only available in Sterling Silver, but we just love how effective it is exactly the way it is.
