If you were born in June, you're lucky enough to have three birthstones to call your own! June is one of only three months (the others are August and December) that have three birthstones. Between Alexandrite, Moonstone and Pearl, people born in June are spoilt for choice. 

 

Alexandrite

Many myths and legends describe alexandrite as a carrier of good luck, especially when it comes to love and finances. Alexandrite is well-known for its remarkable colour changes — green in sunlight and red in incandescent light. 

Moonstone 

Moonstone is a modern gemstone that is often gifted for 13 years of marriage and every succeeding year after that. Symbolising properity and passion, moonstone is said to balace the positive and negative sides of the mind. 

Pearl

Pearls are the only gemstone to come from a living creature, with all others being created under the Earth's crust. Natural pearls are amongst the rarest jewels in the world, with approximately 99% of pearls believed to be cultivated. In addition to its classic beauty, pearls have long been considered to symbolise loyalty, purity and clarity, making this birthstone a perfect gift for a friend or relative.

The moon has long been a prominent and powerful symbol in art and literature for centuries. In classical tradition, the moon is associated with Greek and Roman goddesses, making the moon a compelling symbol of femininity. 

 

Art Nouveau designs of the 1910's were heavily influenced by mythology, with the Roman goddess Diana being a favoured subject. The crescent moon has long been a symbol of the goddess, perhaps as it echoes the shape of her bow. In art and literature she is often represented with a crescent moon crown on her head. 

 

Victorian brides wore brooches with a crescent moon cradling a flower on their honeymoon. These sweet styles are called honeymoon brooches, which were said to represent ‘the magic of the moon and the sweet nectar of the flower.’
