“…..30 days hath September, April, June and November” is how the well-known poem starts and I’m certainly looking forward to the 30 days of June as we inch closer towards our Summer here in the U.K.
It’s the month with the most daylight hours, and it’s also the month that has two birthstones associated with it, Pearl and Alexandrite.
So those lucky to be born in June get the pick of not just one birthstone, but these two beautiful choices. Alexandrite has mysterious qualities, with its unusual ability to ‘change colour’ from blueish green in daylight to purplish red under incandescent light. This stone is believed to strengthen intuition, aid creativity and inspire imagination.
It’s often said that birthstones worn with the relevant birth month can bring the wearer luck. Although I’m always happy when I hear the delight from customers receiving something personal to them when they come to own a piece of birthstone jewellery.
Why not celebrate your birthday, or that of a loved one with one of my beautiful Alexandrite jewellery pieces? Or even create a matching set or combination of earrings, necklace and bracelet. Perhaps it’s a ‘big’ decade birthday celebration this year so it deserves that extra special gift.
Below are a few examples of my Alexandrite jewellery, which I hope you enjoy as much as I have making these entrancing pieces.
