Do you know what Marilyn Monroe, Rafael Nadal, Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Anne Frank, George Bush, Donald Trump, Paula Abdul, Michael Phelps and Prince William have in common? We know that they are all famous on their own right. They are after all some of the most popular actresses, actors, athletes, authors, musicians, entrepreneurs and politicians in the world. Well, the answer is actually not complicated. All of them are born on the month June.
It is then appropriate that we put the spotlight now to birthstones associated with the said month. True to the personalities of people born on this month, June has three birthstones. As far as I know, it is the only month with such number of birthstones. Pearl, Alexandrite and Moonstone are the three gems associated with June.
Pearls are the most popular among the three. The word itself has become synonymous to beauty, royalty and elegance. Now you can understand why Marilyn Monroe seems to be fascinated with pearls. Who wouldn’t be charmed with pearl beaded jewelry? Wearing them brings you class and a feeling of royalty. No less than the well-loved Princess Diana is often seen wearing pearl accessories.
But not just any type of pearl necklaces can pull this off. There are tons of commercially produced pearl accessories nowadays that can make your outfit look monotonous. What you need are handcrafted pearl jewelry that will help you stand out from the rest. Pearls are supposed to be rare and unique. Handcrafted beaded pearl jewelry makes a better statement and they bring out your personality even more.
Now let’s talk about moonstones. If you have been following the TV show Vampire Diaries, then you probably have an idea of what it looks like. Ancient civilizations believed that wearing jewelry with this stone can bring forth victory and good health. We don’t know for sure if that is true. What we do know is that handcrafted jewelry containing moonstones have become prominent because of their allure. Holding it up against the light will reveal silver streaks of color much like a moonlight. Twilight movie actress Kirsten Stewart and award winning actress Meryl Streep have been seen wearing moonstones publicly.
The third gemstone for June is alexandrite. It is rare and has chameleon like qualities. Alexandrite is basically yellow in color but it excitingly turns to red once exposed to light. This gemstone gives you two gems in one as it appears like an emerald in daylight while it looks like ruby at night. Aside from its natural beauty, women are attracted to it since it symbolizes happiness and good fortune.
Even better than having these pieces of jewelry is the idea that you own exquisite pieces that are one of a kind. Such is the case for handcrafted jewelry. Each piece is painstakingly designed and beaded. There is also a huge consideration in quality as opposed to those manufactured commercially. Seeing that they are one of a kind, chances are you won’t find somebody else wearing the same beaded jewelry. Isn’t that sweet?
Wouldn’t you rather own something unique and exquisite? Let us know and we know just the place find some.
