Jewellery containing one's birthstone makes for great gifts, though not just for birthdays but anniversary, mother's day or any special occasion, as they are personal and thoughtful.
Pearls are gifted for those born in June. They are a symbol of wisdom, clarity, and purity. In ancient Greece, pearls were thought to be formed when the tears of joy that fell from the eyes of goddess Aphrodite hardened. While others believe pearls to be very effective in treating health issues related to the stomach, heart and spleen. It is also said to calm the mind and prevents hysteria, promoting mental stability.
If you want your pearl to last a lifetime, it is important not to expose it to sunlight, humidity or a wide temperature variation which can all dull a pearl’s luster. Wearing your pearls often is the best way to care for them as the body’s natural oils keep them lustrous. Wipe the pearls with a soft cloth before putting them away.
