June is here, and we have not one, but three, birthstones to wear this month: alexandrite, moonstone, and pearl. While all three are stunners in their unique ways, we can’t help but find ourselves pining over the pearl. Maybe Kristen Stewart has something to do with that?
That’s right, the pearl has surpassed its past reputation as being preppy, and has cool again. Whether we’re wearing them on our eyes like K. Stew or in our ears and around our necks, we plan to be dripping in them all month long.
Arguably the most interesting precious stones to exist, it’s the only one created by another living thing (an oyster, duh), rather than dug out of the earth. It’s known to have a calming effect, grounding and centering its wearer and working to balance their aura. Considering a good chunk of this month is ruled by Gemini, that all sounds pretty appropriate to us.
We rounded up 15 unconventional pearl pieces, perfectly suited for the June-born Geminis and Cancers in our lives—or, you know, as a gift to ourselves. Check out our picks, below.
