WOMENS BRACELET | JUNE - PEARL / MOONSTONE

BRACELET FINISH

June: Month of Pearl / Moonstone

The June birthstone, pearl, has long been a symbol of purity. The ancient Greeks believed that pearls were the hardened tears of joy from Aphrodite, the goddess of love.

 

History of moonstone

Moonstone is a form of the mineral oligoclase feldspar. Moonstone's name comes from the fact that its shiny iridescent and refractive properties resemble the glowing moon. Moonstone (also called sunstone) can be blue-white or peach in color. Ancient peoples believed that the stone had mystical properties and could help with spiritual awareness. Some even believed that wearing this stone could cause invisibility for the wearer.

Science of moonstone

The strange light-refractive qualities of moonstone are caused by lamellar intergrowths inside the crystal. These structures form from layers caused by chemicals responding to hot and cold temperatures differently. When light enters the stone, it is bounced back and forth between these layers before it exits as the glowing moon-like effect we see.

 

-Product Care

Follow these simple steps to keep your jewelry looking its best

  • Always store jewelry separately; on a tube, in a box or in an anti-tarnish pouch (precious jewelry only).
  • Always remove jewelry before swimming, bathing, doing household chores, or using abrasive cleaners. Remember, some household cleaners contain chlorine bleach; these will cause discoloration of gemstone jewelry.
  • Apply beauty products such as perfume, hairspray or deodorant before wearing jewelry as certain chemicals can leave a residue on your jewelry that can harm or dull silver, gold and gemstones.
