June is one of only two months that has three birthstones associated with it, giving the lucky people born in June a choice of gemstones between pearl, alexandrite and moonstone.
Often described as emerald by day and ruby by night, alexandrite is a rare variety of the mineral chrysoberyl which changes in colour in daylight or incandescent light. The qualities of this gemstone makes alexandrite one of the rarest and costliest of gems. Haywards of Hong Kong’s objective expertise could prove invaluable, in such a high value purchase. The possibilities of creating a beautiful bespoke piece with this stunning gem are endless.
Gone are the days when pearl, in a necklace, is the sole domain of grandma’s jewellery. Now with Hayward’s modern styles and diamond options, stunning and attractive birthday earrings offer the younger audience a real fashion statement. The gem experts at Haywards are here to talk you through all the many and varied colour, nacre and quality options of the cultured pearl, while using their expertise for a lovely matching pair of pearl studs. Pearls can also make lovely cocktail rings and are more often also spotted in engagement rings.
This gemstone derives its name from the quality of the stone’s milky glow, like moonlight floating in water. Classical moonstones are cut as cabochons with a high dome to accentuate the adularescence. Haywards can guide you through the many different colours and prices for the different hues of silver and light blue through to orange and green moonstone. A Haywards designed pendant could prove a perfect birthday gift.
With June’s birthstones ranging from creamy opalescent pearl and moonstone to the rare colour-changing alexandrite, one of the earths most valuable gems, there is such a spectrum of price points and colour options, that Haywards can really provide a beautiful birthstone gift to fit any budget or mood.
