Being born in the summer has a lot of advantages. You’ve always been able to celebrate your birthday in the best weather, having fun with friends and family until the small hours of the night. Adventuring has always been at your fingertips. Going to the beach and feeling the sun’s warmth is probably the best part of summertime, feeling the heated sand on your skin and the refreshing salty ocean breeze fill your lungs.
The pearl fits perfectly as the birthstone for the first summer month. Symbolizing new beginnings, it is the promise of excitement and exploration. Pearls have been considered a valuable gemstone for thousands of years and their mystery and beauty has been the subject of many myths and legends. Pearls come in a variety of colours and shapes making them versatile and highly sought after.
Due to the fact, not every shell has a pearl inside, they have become synonymous with rarity, understated beauty and wealth. As birthstones, they are symbols of success, fortune and harmony. Likened to the moon, pearls are also considered a metaphor for purity and innocence. This association was probably made through the moon’s connection with the ancient Greek virginal goddess of the moon and hunt Artemis. Because of their symbolism, worth and uniqueness, pearls make wonderful presents, for others or for yourself. If you’re looking to give a gift that will be cherished for years to come, below are some of our suggestions.
