June made special with Pearl

White Freshwater Cultured Pearl & Diamond Ring

Freshwater Cultured Pearl & Diamond Pendant


June's Gem

Pearl Organic gems
Composed of calcium carbonate and conchiolin
Created when an oyster covers an irritant with layers of nacre
Shaped round to baroque
Refractive and lustrously pearly
Find me in the Persian Gulf, India, Sri Lanka, Scotland, Germany, Philippines, Malaysia, Australia, China, Mexico, Panama, Venezuela
But, oh, if you want me cultured as the near-white Akoya ... from Japan I must arrive
Colour me white to yellow to brown
Select me, you Sophisticates, in grey to black Tahitian-black. Call my name, Tahitian black and They shall covet your unique style.
Accent the little black dress or the dandy's elegant satin cravat with a dash of yellow to pink to purple-pink and the coveted first impression is won
On your wedding day parade me lavender or blue-green Orient - that soft iridescent sheen caused by the refraction of light by the layers of nacre and my lustre will be sure to draw admiring eyes
I am Pearl
I endure changes of fashion
I adapt
I remain constantly admired
