July Birthstones

If you were born in the month of June, you are lucky enough to have three birthstones to call your own. 

Historically, pearls have been used as an adornment for centuries. They were one of the most popular gem materials of the Roman Empire. Later in Tudor England, the 1500s were known as the pearl age. Pearls are unique as they are the only gems from living sea creatures and require no faceting or polishing to reveal their natural beauty. 

A relatively modern gem, Alexandrite, was first discovered in Russia in 1831 during the reign of its namesake, Czar Alexander II, and is an extremely rare chrysoberyl with chameleon-like qualities. Its color is a lovely green in both daylight and fluorescent light; it changes color to a purplish red in incandescent light. 

The Moonstone was given its name by the Roman natural historian Pliny, who wrote that the moonstone’s appearance altered with the phases of the moon—a belief that held true until well after the sixteenth century. A phenomenal gemstone, moonstones reveal a floating play of light (called adularescence) and sometimes showcase either a multi-rayed star or a cat’s eye.
