Official June Birthstone: Pearl
Alternative Birthstones: Alexandrite & Moonstone
The beautiful pearl is acknowledged as one of the oldest gems in the world and has been valued and cherished throughout history. Incorporated into the mythology of every culture from Ancient Greece and Rome, to China and India; the pearl has been treasured as a symbol of love, wealth and protection. In Ancient Rome, pearls were the ultimate symbol of wealth and prestige, and an effort was made to prohibit anyone but royalty from wearing them. In Hindu cultures, pearls were associated with the moon and were seen as symbols of purity and love. This has meant that pearls are often associated with weddings, and with their beautiful glow and luxurious cream colour, what better accessory to compliment the dress of a bride-to-be than pearl jewellery!
1920’s glamour and Art Deco fashion is back so there is no better time to invest in some pearls. French fashion designer Coco Chanel popularised costume jewellery and long strands of pearls in the 1920’s and thanks to the revival of The Great Gatsby and their fabulous outfits, 20’s-style jewellery is back on the catwalk. Art Deco fashions emphasised geometric lines and bold colours and this has been embraced in the new designs in many of our collections, from Lola Rose and Diamonfire, to Glam Rock and Pure Attraction!
