This charming bead is perfect for your friend with a June birthday. Straight from the Tara Diary's Collection, this sterling silver bead is adorned, not with pearl the common June birthstone, but with the far more exciting deep pink Alexandrite. To add another layer of texture and excitement, the band of the bead is not left bare. No, cheerful swirls bedeck the space between the June birthstones lending the bead a happy and unique look.
Is it at all confusing that Alexandrite- named after the Russian Tsar- should be chosen for those June born Geminis? After all, Gemini is the twin and Alexandrite has two completely different looks depending on the light. Under florescent it appears a lovely green. But under incandescent, it is a deep pink.
A Stone for Every Month
Birthstones have had a long history in our culture. Originally, there were twelve stones for the twelve months. But rather than wearing just one ring for your particular month of birth, you wore a different ring each month. These rings were thought to give healing powers and keep the wearer in balance with the seasons. But today, we have economized to only one birthstone for the whole year.
