Birthstone: Pearls of Wisdom in June

This month the birthstone for anyone celebrating a birthday in June or has the star sign of Gemini or Cancer (21 to 30 June) is pearl. Pearls symbolise purity, calmness, faith and truth. They are believed to bring luck, health and prosperity. Telling someone who is about to purchase a pearl that it is formed by a living organism, may not inspire them. But the facts behind how they are created is fascinating.

Are Diamonds Really a Girl’s Best Friend?

Diamonds are certainly on the list of a girl’s best friend, but so too are shoes, clothes, and chocolate. Let’s just say the list is endless and that’s without giving a mention to cats or dogs. So why are diamonds considered a girl’s best friend? Is it because they are expensive or perhaps because they are bright and beautiful. Or maybe its because they have been romanticised.

Birthstone Emerald: Step aside shades of grey, green is the flavour of May

If you were born in May you might not know that your birthstone is Emerald. The stone relates to nature, fertility, harmony, peace and serenity. Whilst emerald as a colour is uplifting and relates to an abundance of wealth, prosperity and the emotion of love and wellbeing. Together both the gemstone and the colour make a formidable combination. With flowers in bloom and nature in abundance at this time of year, there could be no better fitting colour or gemstone.

What we do know, is that the answer will be supported with a piece of Jewellery, the engagement ring.
