Pearl Jewelry

What counsel has the hooded moon
Put in thy heart, my shyly sweet,
Of Love in ancient plenilune,
Glory and stars beneath his feet
A sage that is but kith and kin
With the comedian Capuchin?

Rather than that. I am wise.
In disregard of the divine,
A glory kindles in those eyes
Trembles to starlight. Mine, O Mine!
No more tears in the moon or mist
For thee, sweet sentimentalist.

-James Joyce

Born under the zodiac Gemini, June borns often exhibit childlike traits and are cheerful, restless, and full of life. Those born in June are friendly, humorous, and talkative. They are brilliant and highly curious. And just as a child is soothed and intrigued by the silvery hues of the moon, the moon, like pearl and moonstone, is the birthstone of these candid, trusting individuals.

Pearl & Gold Studs Earrings

Intricate Pearl & Gold Studs

According to South Asian mythology, pearls were dewdrops from heaven that fell into the sea, caught by shellfish under the first rays of the rising sun during a period of a full moon. A tale of childlike innocence, wonder, and magic for the childlike June born!

Unlike most mineral-origin gemstones found on Earth, pearls have an organic basis. Pearls are made mostly of aragonite, a relatively soft carbonate mineral (CaCO3) that also makes up the shells of mollusks.

They are created inside the shells of sure oysters and clams when an irritant such as a tiny fragment of rock, a sand grain, or a parasite enters the mollusk’s body.

It irritates the oyster or clam, much like a dust particle would irritate our eyes. The mollusk responds by coating the foreign layer upon layer of shell material. Pearls formed inside the shell are usually irregular and have little commercial value. However, those included within the mollusk tissue are either spherical or pear-shaped and are in high demand for jewelry. Many pearls today are cultured in oyster farms that sustain a thriving pearl industry.

Pearls possess a uniquely delicate translucence and luster that place them among the most highly valued gemstones. The pearl’s color depends on the mollusk species that produced it and its environment. White is perhaps the best-known and most common color. However, pearls also come in delicate shades of black, cream, grey, blue, yellow, lavender, green, and mauve.

Black pearls can be found in the Gulf of Mexico and waters off some islands in the Pacific Ocean. The Persian Gulf and Sri Lanka are well-known for exquisite cream-colored pearls called Orientals. A pearl’s journey to create a piece of jewelry is a miraculous event. Gemstones must be cut and polished to reveal their beauty, but pearls need no treatment to reveal their loveliness.

Pearl Studs

Pearls were used in medicine as early as 2000 BC in China, where they were believed to represent wealth, power, and longevity. In Europe, pearls were used in treatment until the 17th century. Arabs and Persians thought it was a cure for various diseases, including insanity.

Even to this day, the lowest-grade pearls are ground for use as medicine in Asia. In India, warriors encrusted their swords with pearls to symbolize the tears and sorrow that a sword brings. According to Vedic Astrology, Moon reflects the human mind and profoundly impacts our thinking. Pearls maintain the stability of the mind and improve confidence.
