June Birthstone Jewelry Under $100

Updated on July 3, 2017

Lucky June Babies - Celebrate their Birthdays with Pearls!

Celebrating your beloved one with a gift of a piece of birthstone jewelry is a wonderful way to give an unique, personalized present. Lucky June has four great birthstones: pearl, moonstone, alexandrite, and cats eye.

Each of these stones have history, mystery and of course beauty associated with them. The "pearl" has been valued since Biblical times, and is discussed in both the Old and New Testament. They are valued in Hindu, Islam and pagan philosophies. "Pearl" was the young woman in The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, the perfect little girl who was born in "sin" and had more to offer than any of the righteous members of the community.

Two of the other June birthstones are from the chrysoberyl family: both alexandrite and cat's eye. Alexandrite is amazing because of its ability to change color, and cat's eye is the gorgeous yellow or yellow-brown version of the stone. The moonstone is the other birthstone of June that I found: composed of two alternating layers of feldspar that combine to make beauty.

I have worked hard to find some lovely June birthstone jewelry pieces for you or your beloved - all available on Amazon for under $100.

More about the Religious and Literary Reference

The Pearl's Ancient Symbology

Pearly references that comes into my mind most often are Biblical: such as Jesus's sermon of the Mount where he instructs us in Matthew 7:6 "Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces." This speaks to me of keeping what is valuable to your soul close, and using discretion in who you share it with. Heaven is described as the "Pearly Gates" - in Revelation 21:21 we learn of New Jerusalem, which will be heaven and how "The twelve gates were twelve pearls; every gate was of one pearl: and the streets of the city were pure gold, as if transparent glass." The Muslim people also mention that those who make it to heaven will be "adorned in pearls," in the Koran.

The Indian people describe the Nine Pearls: the conch, fish, boar head, cobra, elephant, whale, bamboo, cloud and oyster. Each of these beautiful varieties had a special meaning to the Hindu people. Pearl necklaces are used extensively in Hindu weddings, especially the white which symbolizes innocence, purity and union. All colors of the gemstone have special meanings: the golden is supposed to bring wealth, the sapphire blue symbolizes eternity just to list two.

Pagan and Wiccan people value these lovely white stones as well: they have been used in ceremonies and spells as symbols of purity and to help balance the mind and heart.

      Oooo the moonstone and the alexandrite jewelry are so mystically beautiful! I love them. Pearls are just as mysterious too. Pearls take on added luster the longer you wear them next to your skin. I love the feel of pearls. What woman wouldn't?
