Pearl- June's Birthstone

The birthstone for June is pearl! Pearls are so beautiful and they are the only gemstone created by a living creature and not the earth itself.  In gemstone lore pearls are thought to help bring success and prosperity. They have a long history and are mentioned in the Bible many times.

Of course Coco Chanel was famous for her pearls!

This freshwater pearl necklace is one of my designs in my shop. Do you own any pearl jewelry?
