With that being said, that means there is a good chance that you will be attending your fair share of ceremonies this summer to celebrate the next chapters of life for your friends, family, and loved ones.
With so much to do this month and so many places to go, choosing the perfect outfit for any occasion can cause some challenges. What type of jewelry goes with what outfit? What kind of stone looks best in the summer? Should I layer my necklaces? The list goes on and on. However, it's summertime and there is no need to over think - I mean you waited all winter to be able to show off the collection you have built up and now it is your time to shine.
Nevertheless, June is the perfect time to highlight a few stones in particular. With a solid 3 months still remaining filled with sun-soaked, long days outside, it is never the wrong time to incorporate one of the birthstones for the month of June into your rotation - that of course being pearls!
Pearls are one of the true treasures from the ocean. The saltwater or freshwater pearls are formed within the shelled mollusk and are composed of calcium carbonate in crystalline form. This process results in a truly stunning and desirable stone that is worn by many each day. The stone is associated with the ocean due to its ties to the saltwater animals it comes from. However, there are freshwater pearls as well. Overall, pearls are a perfect addition to any outfit come the summer months.
If pearls don’t fit your taste, then the other birthstone for the month of June just might. That of course being the colorful and adaptable stone known as alexandrite. Alexandrite is a colorful stone that, depending on the angle in which light hits it, changes the overall color appearance of the stone. The stone features an assortment of blues, reds, purples, yellows and greens. The stone is truly one of the more unique ones and provides an addition of color to your collection.
With the warm weather here to stay for the foreseeable future as summer begins, it is the perfect time to showcase your stunning jewelry every chance you get. If you are looking to add some new pieces to your collection, check out our extensive collection online or visit us in-store!
