Moonstone: June’s ‘Other Birthstone’

June 11, 2011 | By | Reply More

If you love the iridescent luster of pearl, the traditional June birthstone, you’ll be equally captivated by the moonstone—June’s alternate birthstone. This gem’s special aura is enchanting and feminine.

Like most gemstones, the moonstone is cloaked in legend and lore. Known in some cultures as ‘the lover’s stone’ it was said to inspire sentimental emotions. In other cultures it was a stone of fertility or used to bring wisdom and intuition to its wearer.

This shimmery stone is sure to be a favorite this season. Our moonstone selections, set in sterling silver, are summer ready and affordably priced, allowing you to enjoy a special piece of jewelry and a little lustrous luxury.

With the Oval Rainbow Moonstone Ring in Sterling Silver (shown above) adorning your finger, you won’t be able to take your eyes off your hand as you tilt the stone to different angles to watch it catch and refract the light. This is a unique piece of summer jewelry—as pretty with a sundress as it is with jeans and a white t-shirt.

The Floral Moonstone Earrings in Sterling Silver are a blended balance of the luminescent moonstone and oxidized sterling silver—giving them an antique appearance and classic charm. Perfect for the modern romantic who loves old things and appreciates time-enhanced beauty.
