JUNE BIRTHSTONE | PEARLS

JUNE BIRTHSTONE | PEARLS

As a June baby myself, I have always loved pearls. A symbol of beauty and purity, they have long been used in jewellery to create a classic and contemporary look. At Ruby Tynan Jewellery less is most certainly more, so we keep our pearl pieces nice and simple, like these classic pearl earrings.

Pair these beautiful earrings with a matching pearl drop necklace for an understated, luxurious, and feminine look. 

5 INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT PEARLS:

  1. Pearls are the only gemstone made by living animals.

  2. Pearls take their colour from the inside of the shell in which they are growing. They range from white to gold, and from purple to black.

  3. Every pearl is unique. No two are alike, and all have some imperfections.

  4. Pearl farming is know as "Periculture."

  5. The oldest known pearl jewelry fragment was found in the sarcophagus of a Persian princess who died in 520 BC.

Pearls are considered to be the world's only organic gemstone, and are therefore, extremely delicate. So take care of your pearl jewellery appropriately by keeping them away from personal care products, such as perfume or hairspray.
