Happy birthday to all our pearl-loving June babies! You’ve lucked out with this luminescent June birthstone. Gorgeous and affordable, this marine beauty upgrades any personal style. Read on for our favorite pearl birthstone jewelry gifts.

Do you have a June birthday? Jealous! This is the month to treat yourself to pearls – or drop a hint to a loved one so they can treat you with a pearl birthday gift!

Pearl  June Birthstone Jewelry

Why Pearl Rules 

First of all, it’s the only marine gemstone. Thank you, oysters! These shore-dwelling mollusks are clever little creatures. They filter water, their oyster reefs provide homes for smaller organisms, they’re a tasty and sustainable source of food, and certain species produce our beloved pearls. 

How Oysters Produce Pearls

It all stems from a self-defense mechanism. When a bit of grit finds its way into an oyster’s belly, the creature neutralizes this annoyance by literally smoothing it over. It coats this piece of flotsam in layers and layers of naturally-secreted nacre (also known as mother of pearl), effectively quieting the original irritation. As time goes on, this nacre-coated fragment grows into a larger and larger pearl!

How Pearl Farmers Do It

Cultured pearls start off when pearl farmers “nucleate” their oysters; they insert a tiny bead into the oysters and wait for them to do their thing! This doesn’t hurt the oysters at all – in fact, they grow and get on with their normal tasks of filtering water even as the pearls grow inside them. 

Harvesting

Pearl harvesting, like pearl nucleating, doesn’t harm the oyster. When the time comes to harvest the pearls, farmers open the oysters slightly, extract the fully-”grown” pearl, and at the same time insert a new bead. They then re-submerge the oyster and the whole pearl process starts over!

June Birthdays and June Weddings

As the June birthstone, you can bet that pearl is rife with meaning. Representing wisdom and health, it’s no shock that they’re a great way to start off a new year. But they’re not only given on birthdays; most pearls display a gentle white sheen, and since white has traditionally represented humility, innocence, and new beginnings, it’s an extremely popular wedding gift.

It requires no complicated cutting or mining to extract pearls, and so their beauty is easy to appreciate. As such, it’s one of the oldest and most widely-treasured gemstones; for thousands of years they’ve been traded from China to Persia to Sri Lanka. The ancient Greeks believed they were the tears of the gods. Nowadays, the popularity of cultured pearls has made these once-rare gemstones much more affordable. So you can pick up your own heavenly pearls for a fraction of what ancient royalty once had to pay for them.

Pearl is June’s glowing birthstone, and we have a sweet collection of Akoya, Tahitian, South Sea, and freshwater cultured pearl jewelry. Here are a few of our favorites for June birthstone gifts:

4. Janelle Monáe + Pink Sapphire Necklace

Verdant Emeralds: The May Birthstone

Capture the freshness of spring with May birthstone jewelry and engagement rings!

Kate Middleton wearing Halo Emerald And Diamond Earrings

Emerald, the May birthstone, is one of the rarest gemstones out there. Literally meaning “green” in Greek, emerald mining has existed, as we know it, for well over three thousand years. Throughout the ages, cultures across the globe have delighted in this green gem: Cleopatra regularly flaunted emeralds and gave them away as diplomatic gifts, Spanish conquerors plundered emeralds from the Incas, and legend has it that an emerald was one of the 4 sacred stones given to King Solomon. Nowadays, nearly half of the world’s emeralds are mined in Colombia. 

Emerald is a form of the mineral beryl, which has been tinged green by trace amounts of chromium and/or vanadium. Ooooh, and how green it can be! From light- to deep-colored, emerald’s verdant hues span the green spectrum. The better the emerald gemstone’s cut, the richer it’s color.

Fun fact: another popular version of the mineral beryl, tinged blue by trace amounts of iron, is aquamarine!

The emerald cut is one with particularly few facets, and as such doesn’t give a stone’s imperfections anywhere to hide. This is why it suits stones with excellent clarity! Although any stone can be cut into an emerald cut, this particular cut originated with emeralds. It suits them perfectly! Two features are most important in an emerald: the hue and the clarity. Emeralds can contain various imperfections, which can be hidden by other multi-faceted cuts. But if you want your emerald to shine incredibly, and its green color to somehow appear brighter, then choose a stone with a high grade of clarity.

Emeralds can be the affordable gemstone choice! A 1-carat emerald actually appears larger than a 1-carat diamond. Why? Emeralds are less dense, and thus take up more space. Plus, at the same carat weight as diamonds, emeralds have much lower price points.

How to Wear Emeralds

  • Emeralds are durable (7.5-8 on the Moh’s Hardness Scale), but they’re not nearly as hard as diamonds (a maximum 10 on the Moh’s Scale). This means that they can be chipped or damaged, particularly if you wear them often. You can prevent this by choosing a sturdy setting for your emerald that properly encases it: strong prongs or an all-around bezel setting.
  • If you’ve got red hair or freckles, emeralds will look particularly fabulous on you! Red and green are complementary colors, so pair them as much as you can. Does it matter what type of jewelry in which you choose to showcase your emerald? No! Go wild, it’ll all look incredible.
  • Blue eyes? Dark green emerald earrings are your thing. The cool hue of the emeralds will complement your icy irises!
  • Because emeralds can be quite dark in color, it’s best to opt for larger carats, which allow more light to strike the stone and reveal its features.

Emerald Jewelry: May Birthstone Gifts

Shopping for a May birthday? Go emerald. Not only are they beautiful on their own, but emeralds also represent youthful vitality, which makes them meaningful birthday presents. Gift a necklace, bracelet, ring, or earrings with May’s vivid green stone!

Cleopatra famously obsessed over emeralds – she laid claim over every single emerald mine in Egypt while she was queen. Though they’ve refrained from buying any mines, modern-day royalty and celebs like Kate Middleton, Elizabeth Taylor, Angelina Jolie have also rocked emeralds in their red carpet jewelry.

Did you know that your engagement ring’s center stone doesn’t necessarily need to be a diamond? If you want to feature a stunning emerald instead, your stone of choice can be set in any of our engagement ring designs. This is even more perfect if the ring recipient was born in May.

The May birthstone is the perfect green light to “Will you marry me?” Choose a ring with emerald side stones or a vibrant center.

If there’s anything GoT season 8 has taught us, it’s that epic fire is worth the wait. Check out these Game of Thrones-inspired jewelry pieces for the perfect fandom gifts and engagement rings.

Game of Thrones Jewelry: The Iron Throne

Radiant Open Diamond Necklace

Of course, we need to begin with the Throne itself. If there’s anything more coveted than ruling the Seven Kingdoms, it’s this dramatic necklace. And to be honest, we’d take these 16 round and baguette cut diamonds over 1,000 daggers – but you know, to each their own.

Game of Thrones Jewelry: The Red Wedding (Ring)

Vintage Ruby and Diamond Ring

“The Rains of Castamere” pulled off one of the most impressive and terrifying twists on TV with the Red Wedding. For a slightly happier ending, might we suggest this red wedding ring instead? This way, you can tie the knot with vintage glory and none of the gory.

jane the virgin inspired engagement rings

After the cliffhanger following season four’s almost-proposal, we thought we’d have some fun… Presenting: engagement rings and wedding rings for our favorite Jane the Virgin characters!

Jane-Inspired Ring: Jane

Just for Jane, we’ll write and publish a super-organized list obsessing over this pavé engagement ring: a. Eighteen side-stones add romantic sparkle; b. the platinum band is hypoallergenic and durable; and c. Perfect Fit sides keep the diamonds front and center.

Obsession-Worthy Art Deco Engagement Rings

What makes an art deco engagement ring? Find out and find your own!

art deco engagement rings

Vintage-style art deco rings are named after the Art Deco design style of the 1920s and 30s. Not sure what we mean? Think of the geometric patterns on The Chrysler Building or the Empire State Building in N.Y.C., or on covers of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. Simply put, we think art deco engagement rings are the bee’s knees. Scroll down to discover why!

WHAT MAKES AN ART DECO ENGAGEMENT RING?

Art Deco Engagement Rings: Geometric Halos

The Art Deco era was all about geometric symmetry, and art deco halo rings are no exception! Inspired by architecture, these angular halos give their rings a glamorous edge.

Art Deco Engagement Rings: Baguette Cut

Baguette cut diamonds were super popular during the Art Deco era. These gems are step-cut like emerald cut diamonds, but with square corners. Baguettes make for great center diamonds and can also shine as engagement ring side stones (P.S. Want to learn more? We’ve got this one in the baguette.)

14K White Gold Engraved Basket Engagement Ring

Art Deco Engagement Rings: Milgrain

Another style that characterizes art deco engagement rings: milgrain detailing, i.e. those beaded dots that look like glittering stitches in the metal. Milgrain detailing lends your diamonds a level up, adding a delicate and flirty frame.

Art Deco Engagement Rings: Diamond Shapes

Along with baguette cut diamonds, two other shapes were the talk of the town: cushion cut diamonds and asscher cut diamonds. Cushion cut diamonds are square with rounded corners and are one of the first cuts ever. Chosen by modern celebrities from Jessica Biel to Sofia Vergara, their crushed ice appearance creates a romantic glow.

14K Yellow Gold Paisley Surprise Engagement Ring
Art Deco Paisley Engagement Ring with Cushion Cut Diamond

Asscher cut diamonds were also super popular in the Gatsby era. However, this shape is still loved for its glacier-like clarity and “hall of mirrors” geometric effect. Case in point: Elizabeth Taylor and Pippa Middleton (a.k.a. grace and style personified) both chose asscher cut engagement rings.
