Pearls are the birthstone for June, and are believed to represent wisdom, perseverance, and integrity. Pearls have been one of the most loved and sought-after gems for centuries and across many cultures, and they have also been believed to represent purity, beauty, and wealth – especially in some cultures, such as Ancient Rome, where pearls were so highly valued they were only allowed to be worn by the noble class.
The deep symbolism surrounding pearls has to do with the unique way they are formed. Pearls are the only gem created by living creatures, and in the wild, they are extraordinarily rare to find. As a beautiful and mystical product of nature, it’s no wonder pearls have often been believed to have a little bit of magic around them!
Give someone special a strand of pearls or a pearl pendant for a beautiful gift that symbolises wisdom, perseverance, beauty, and more. For an extra meaningful gift, pearls are perfect for your loved ones with a birthday in June.
