Lulu – Pearl – June Birthstone- Earrings
The lustrous pearl marks the half way point of the year. The only organic material in our birthstones selection, as they are the only gemstone to be found inside a living creature.
Pearls have fascinated mankind from their first discovery almost a millennia ago in 2,206 BCE. They have been revered across ancient cultures and modern monarchies, even inspiring artists, for example Vermeer’s ‘Girl with the Pearl Earring’ (1665).
Their serene beauty is great reminder that a small irritation can be a good thing as it ends up creating a beautiful gem, so perhaps all our trials and tribulations are worth it in the end.
Pearls were once known to be rather old fashioned gemstone, however in recent years they have been revived and are perfect for the everyday.
Traditional, pearls have been associated with wisdom through experience, and are believed to attract wealth and luck.
The pearls are the only stone we are unable to offer in a pear shaped setting due to it’s natural form. The studs set in a 9K gold.
