There are two birthstones for the month of June. Alexandrite was the traditional birthstone for June, but due to its scarcity and cost, pearl has become June's common birthstone.

 

The alexandrite was named after Czar Alexander II and is one of the most desired gems. Its color changes with the lighting surrounding the stone, which is called its phenomena. Depending upon the light, the alexandrite phenomena can have a greenish, reddish or purplish hue. It is mainly mined in Sri Lanka and Rhodesia and is a 8.5 on the Mohs' hardness scale.

 

The more common birthstone for June is the pearl. Where the name pearl derives is unknown, but it perhaps comes from the Latin word perna, which is a type of shell. Pearls are produced by mollusks, or more specifically, oysters. Depending upon the type of mollusk and the condition of surrounding water, pearl color can range from pink, silver, cream, golden, green, blue, gray to black. Pearls are sensitive to acids, perspiration, cosmetics and hair spray so care must be taken. Today, mostly all pearls sold retail are cultured pearls, or pearls that have been placed into oysters by man in oyster farms.

 

The price for 7mm natural alexandrite earrings mounted in 14K gold would be in the $250,000 range. How can you get the fabulous phenomena of alexandrite without paying 6 digits? Jennifer Eagle Collection offers superb 7mm synthetic alexandrite earrings mounted in 14K gold at the reasonable price of $110.00/pr. For a blast from the past, dazzle your friends with the unique and almost extinct birthstone for June--synthetic alexandrite!

 

Natural pearls, or pearls found in oysters from the ocean, are far too rare to correctly estimate the price of a 7mm pair of earrings. Jennifer Eagle Collection offers 7mm cultured pearl earrings mounted in 14K gold. If classy charm is what you seek, this is the jewel for June!
