Pearl - The June Birthstone

Pearl - The June Birthstone

Did you know that the custom of birthstones has a fascinating history? The first-century historian Josephus believed that the twelve stones in Aaron's breastplate were connected to the twelve months and zodiac signs. This idea captivated many, and over the centuries, interpretations of birthstones evolved. By the 8th and 9th centuries, people wore different stones each month, believing in their unique virtues and powers.

The single birthstone tradition we know today is much newer, with origins in 18th-century Poland or Germany in the 1560s, depending on historical accounts. It wasn't until 1912 that the American National Association of Jewelers standardized the list of birthstones, creating the foundation for the modern birthstone calendar. This list has seen updates over the years, reflecting changes in gemological discoveries and consumer preferences.

Fast forward to today, and the birthstone for June is the elegant pearl. Pearls have always been associated with purity, wisdom, and serenity, making them a perfect symbol for this vibrant month. Unlike other gemstones formed deep within the Earth, pearls are created by living organisms, giving them a unique allure and a touch of mystery. Their timeless beauty and understated elegance have made pearls a favorite for centuries.
