If you were born in June you have a truly beautiful birthstone ~ the pearl. They are the oldest gem known to man, and the only gem made by an animal. Pearls are symbols of purity, perfection, elegance and affluence.
Once a rare and highly prized gem, a symbol of power and most expensive since first documented in 2300 BC, they are now relatively inexpensive and available to anyone. We can find them not only in jewelry but accessories and even accents to clothing.
Fortunately for pearl lovers, there are not only natural pearls from oyster beds, but saltwater or freshwater pearls, cultured pearls “invented” in 1907, and those grown in pearl farms. And of course faux pearls made of glass or beads.
Our Best In Vintage members have some fabulous pearl, cultured pearl and even faux pearl offerings for you from jewelry to clothing and of course accessories. We hope you love pearls as much as we do, even if they aren’t your birthstone!
