JUNE

JUNE 

The month of weddings,  birthdays, engagements, anniversaries or graduations!  For those of you looking for gifts for bridesmaids or brides, a lovely traditional piece of jewelry is pearl…now it doesn’t have to be your mother’s style of pearls, it can be a pearl on a gold omega necklace for the bride and a solitary pendant of pearl for your bridesmaids.  It will be a memorable keepsake.

If you have a female in your family that is celebrating that sweet sixteen birthday, a gift of pearls is an awesome gift.  She will have many occasions to wear them.  You might give her a solitary pendant on a leather cord or a wire necklace, she will always remember her sixteenth birthday and YOU.  Let’s not forget the guys either, if you have a guy that loves leather or cord bracelets, a solitary, dark pearl on a bracelet is a very masculine piece of jewelry for him. 

Pearls were the first original engagement rings.  Pick a pearl and put diamonds on either side of it for an engagement ring. Oh, and did you know pearls come in colors!!  They can be Freshwater, Akoya (salt water), South Sea, or Tahitians.  Sizes range from tiny in Freshwater and Akoya, to grandé in the South Sea and Tahitian (18mm).

A graduation gift of pearls is a great gift for that burgeoning CEO.  Wearing them on the interview makes an impression.

Pearls can be dressed up or BOHO chic.  You can throw on a string of pearls with a blouse and a pair of jeans and be classically casual.  They warm to your skin and cultured pearls have a certain weight about them.  True pearl, when rubbed against a tooth, is gritty.  That’s a real pearl!
