How to Fashion Your Summer Birthstone
Updated: Jul 8, 2022
Did you know that the origins of birthstones can be traced back to the 1st Century, AD? Gemstones were linked to the 12 signs of the zodiac and were believed to produce healing powers for those that wore them.
During the modern age, Jewish gem traders in Poland began marketing specific gems for people born each month, and in 1912, the National Association of Jewelers created the official list of birthstones that remains unchanged today. Most months have only one gemstone assigned, but months like December and June have three!
June birthstones include moonstones, alexandrites, and pearls. Lucky June birthday brides can win big with pearls by making both the birthday and anniversary gift lists! With customization being a big trend for 2022 weddings, all June brides can double their fun and fashion by mixing pearls with unique birthstones. Layering a string of pearls with a birthstone pendant, stacking rings and bracelets with alternating bands of pearls and birthstones, or pairing your favorite birthstone stud with elegant pearl dangle earring jackets are all ways you can maximize your special month!
While most people no longer believe that birthstones have magical healing powers, they still are a great way to celebrate the inner and outer sparkle that makes everyone a gem!
