The Pearl is June's Lustrous Birthstone




 No gem, other than perhaps the diamond, is more recognizable than the pearl. All types of pearl jewelry, from pearl earrings to pearl necklaces to pearl rings, have been worn for centuries by royalty, the super-rich, and Hollywood's elite. Most pearls come from two sources: pearl hunting or pearl farms.

Pearl hunting is the activity of gathering pearls where they occur naturally. Beds of mollusks are identified and then pulled to the surface. Some of the mollusks will contain pearls. Unfortunately, because pearls are created by chance when an irritant gets inside of a mollusk, a large batch of mollusks may only yield a tiny amount of pearls. This method uses a lot of resources for little yield, which made pearls very costly. This is why for centuries only the rich and upper classes wore pearl jewelry. The use of pearl farming, which started in the early twentieth century, has helped bring the price of pearls down.

Pearl farming creates what are called cultured pearls. Instead of letting chance decide if a mollusk will create a pearl or not, pearl farmers introduce irritants into their mollusks and then retrieve the pearls once they are fully formed. This method is costs less and creates higher and more predictable yields. This method has made this famous gem cheaper, and therefore, has made pearl jewelry available to more people.
