Exquisite June Birthstone Jewelry: A Guide to Timeless Elegance

Written By: Vahid Moradi

Explore the fascinating world of birthstones, where each month reveals its own unique gem, rich with symbolism and beauty. For those born in June, the allure of their birthstones—pearl, moonstone, and alexandrite—resonates with a charm that transcends time and trends. 

Celebrated for their distinctive appearances and rich history, June birthstones are increasingly becoming a staple in jewelry collections worldwide. In this guide, we unveil the singular beauty and the romantic mystique enveloping these gems, making June birthstone jewelry a sought-after treasure in the realms of adornments.

Discover the Gems of June: Pearls, Moonstones, and Alexandrites

June is one of those unique months that is represented by not one but three enchanting gemstones, each with its own lore and aesthetic appeal. 


Pearls, synonymous with purity and wisdom, are treasured for their classic luster. Unlike other gemstones extracted from the earth, pearls are organic, cultivated within mollusks in water, forming the basis of exquisite pearl jewelry including pearl rings and pearl necklaces.


Moonstone, known for its calming effects, captivates with a unique glow that seems to emanate from within. This luminescence, or adularescence, gives the moonstone its ethereal appeal, beautifully showcased in moonstone necklaces often set in white gold or yellow gold, becoming a top pick for those seeking a hint of mystery.


Alexandrite wows with its color-changing abilities, shifting from lush green in natural light to a deep purplish-red under incandescent light, reflecting the multifaceted personalities of its wearers. This makes alexandrite rings a dynamic choice for those who appreciate a dramatic, visual transformation.

Maintaining the Luster: Durability and Care for June Birthstones

The enchanting beauty of June birthstones, including pearls, moonstones, and alexandrites, demands thoughtful care to preserve their magnificence. Here are several tips to help keep your birthstone jewelry—including pearl necklaces, moonstone necklaces, and birthstone rings—radiant and free from damage:

  1. Soft Storage Solutions: Pearls, due to their organic nature, are particularly soft and susceptible to scratches. Store your pearl necklace and other delicate pieces in individual soft cloth pouches or lined jewelry boxes. This separation is crucial to prevent hard gemstones from scratching the softer pearls.
  2. Regular Cleaning Regimen: Dust, dirt, and body oils can dull the appearance of birthstone jewelry. Gently clean your moonstone necklace and other gemstone jewelry using a soft, damp cloth after wearing. For pearls, use a slightly moist cloth with a dab of mild soap, and make sure they are completely dry before storing them to maintain their luster.
  3. Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Harsh chemicals can severely damage the surface of June birthstones. Always remove your birthstone ring or pearl necklace before swimming, cleaning, or applying products like perfumes or hairsprays. These substances can erode the finish and natural sheen of the gemstones.
  4. Professional Inspections: Schedule annual check-ups with a professional jeweler for your birthstone jewelry. These experts can perform necessary jewelry repair, clean areas that are hard to reach, and ensure settings are secure. This preventative maintenance is vital for heirloom pieces like engagement rings and wedding rings that contain these gems.
  5. Immediate Dry Off: If your June birthstone jewelry gets wet, dry it immediately with a soft cloth. This is especially important for moonstone and pearl, as water can weaken the adhesive in settings and cause the stones to become loose over time. Additionally, while many people wonder, "Is gold waterproof?" it's important to note that while solid gold jewelry is highly resistant to rust and corrosion, prolonged exposure to water can still affect its luster and finish, especially when combined with other elements like pearls or moonstones that are more vulnerable to water damage. 
  6. Proper Wearing Schedule: Remember that your June birthstones are best saved for certain occasions. Avoid wearing delicate pearl jewelry during heavy physical activity; instead, opt for more durable jewelry options when appropriate.

By following these guidelines, you can help ensure that your June birthstone jewelry continues to sparkle and enchant for years to come. For more detailed care instructions, refer to our Jewelry Care Guide, which provides comprehensive advice on how to keep jewelry from tarnishing.
