The #pearl is the birthstone for the month of June.
They are unique as they are the only gems from living sea creatures and require no faceting or polishing to reveal their natural beauty.
In the early 1900s, the first successful commercial culturing of round saltwater pearls began. Since the 1920s, cultured pearls have almost completely replaced natural pearls in the market.
Pearls come in a variety of colours ranging from white to black. The word 'pearl' is derived from the Latin word 'pirum' which reflects the shape of the gem.
Did you know that the pearl is associated with loyalty, faithfulness and friendship also - real pearls are made by oysters or other mollusks whilst imitation pearls are man-made.
Also did you know that a good sized pearl can take between five to eight years to form.
