15ct Gold Diamond and Seed Pearl Star Brooch

June Birthstone | Pearl

We love pearls, the birthstone of June.
Did you know pearls were a symbol of significant wealth for the Romans, it is said that Roman ladies wore their pearls to bed so that they would be reminded of their wealth as soon as they awoke in the morning. I can’t imagine that would have been very comfortable.
The Greeks adopted pearls as a symbol of love and marriage. So today pearls are often given as wedding gifts. Brides love to wear them on their very special day. Alternate gemstones for the month of June are Alexandrite and Moonstone

Pearls are also given to celebrate a 3rd and 30th wedding anniversary.
