If you’re lucky enough to be born in June (like this writer over here), you have the luxury of choosing from not one, but three, birthstones: pearl, alexandrite, and moonstone. While all three of these stones are uniquely beautiful in different ways, we personally think the pearl is the most fun. I mean, they were a favorite of the Roman Empire and all.
While the pearl may have a reputation for being preppy and proper, and, dare I say, basic, we’re here to show you how rad they can be too. Today’s pearls come studded and spiked, in interesting shapes and silhouettes, or are even adorned with black diamond smiley faces.
We rounded up 16 cool-girl pieces of pearl jewelry for all you June birthdays out there (or to gift those lovely Geminis and Cancers in your life). Be prepared to attract wealth and luck, balance your karma, and celebrate your birthday in style. What better gift could there be?
