June Birthstone Jewelry Under $200

Updated on April 19, 2014

Lovely Pearl is the birthstone of June

The pearl is the designed gemstone for June; and it is universally believed as of great value. We are told "not to cast our pearls unto the swine" in the Bible, because only quality recognizes quality.

Lucky June babies are even most blessed - besides the pearl they can celebrate their birthdays with the month's other birthstones: moonstone, alexandrite, and cats eye.

These gifts are beautiful for anyone born in this month, all for between one hundred and two hundred dollars.

The Wondrous Journey of the Precious Pearl

You may not realize how precious the lovely string of gems around your neck is until you realize what goes into making it. Most pearls are cultivated: farmed from freshwater mussels and pearl oysters. However, traditionally we found pearls by diving.

The process of making this beautiful stone is amazing: an irritant will lodge in the shell of a mussel or oyster, and in order to protect itself the organism will secrete a substance that surrounds the irritant and becomes a beautiful gem.

In the past this used to be only achieved by finding the very rare jewellery quality gem in a naturally occurring oyster. Many had to be killed to get just one pearl, thus the exorbitant prices that you would expect to pay then.

Farming has opened up the world to real jewels, and therefore there is not a need to settle for artificial jewels like people used to do in the past.

Sterling Silver Men's Turquoise Mother Of Pearl Triangular Stone Ring

This handsome mother of pearl and turquoise ring will delight any June born man.

Mother of pearl is the iridescent layer of a mollusk's shell, and also the outside of a pearl. In this ring it blends beautifully with the natural turquoise.

The two stones sit on a raised rectangular shank, and I particularly enjoy the triangular design in a men's ring. Sizes 11-13, and on a beautiful 925 silver base.



One Glorious Strand of Pearls

Every woman wants a strand of pearls, it is a traditional graduation present for young ladies as they enter adult hood.

Alexandrite is very rare, so even after a lot of searching I could not find real alexandrite available for less than $200.

But the gorgeous lab created Alexandrite jewelry here is gorgeous too. It has the color changing quality that Alexandrite is famous for. And I thought this piece was very unique in design.
