About pearls: Throughout history, the pearl, with its warm inner glow and shimmering iridescence, has been one of the most highly prized and sought after gems. In ancient Rome, pearls were considered the ultimate symbol of wealth and social standing. The Greeks held the pearl in high esteem for both its unrivaled beauty and its association with love and marriage. Pearls are the birthstone for June.
What is a cultured pearl? An oyster or mollusk is artificially “seeded” with a tiny grain of sand or other object. The mollusk then excretes a coating to protect itself from the irritant. Several layers are accreted, creating a real pearl.
About Peach Moonstone: Peach moonstone varies in intensity from peach to light orange in color. This gemstone has the moving iridescent sheen indicative of moonstone and is generally opaque to semi-transparent. Moonstone is a member of the Feldspar family of minerals. With it’s ethereal glow, it is sure to make you feel like a goddess.
