If your birthday, or that of a loved one, falls in the month of June then you are spoiled for choice when it comes to a birthstone.
Most of the months of the year have a traditional and a modern birthstone but June is unique in that it has a total of three accepted birthstones.
Some explain this away due to astrological origin. For example, if you are born in June with your sun in Gemini than your stone is pearl but if your sun in Cancer than it is a moonstone. Based on this, the alexandrite is the ‘modern’ birthstone that supersedes both of these.
Out of all the June birthstones that are out there it is undoubtedly pearl that is the most popular and most frequently used as a gift.
However, alexandrite is becoming more and more prominent. Thanks, no doubt, in some part due to its unique geologic property that allows it to shift colour from emerald green to pinkish red all depending upon the light.
With its wildly shifting colours alexandrite is in a prime position to spark all kinds of stories and wearing it is thought to strengthen intuition and creativity.
With that in mind, I’ve created the perfect gift for anyone celebrating, or buying for, a June birthday.
My gorgeous hand-beaded sterling silver bracelet adorned with alexandrite coloured Swarovski crystals and finished with a sterling silver puff heart charm, is a birthstone bracelet will be loved by any stylish female as part of their jewellery collection. You can see it for yourself here.
The Swarovski crystals will sparkle on the arm of anyone celebrating their birthday in, what will hopefully be, a sunny June.
As I mentioned in a recent post, you don’t even have to worry about wrapping the present as we offer a gift-wrapping service on purchases. For just £4.95 extra, your bracelet with alexandrite coloured crystals will come packaged in a Jessica Florence Jewellery satin pink pouch or gift box which is also then gift wrapped before being finished with ribbon.
