PEARLS
Pearls, along with alexandrite, are considered the birthstone for June. Pearls come in a variety of shapes: perfectly round and smooth, slightly off round, baroque (almost egg shaped), and even button shaped. Culturing pearls is a process that was started over a hundred years ago by Japanese businessman, Kokichi Mikimoto. He is considered by many to be the father of the modern pearl industry and helped catapult pearls into the gemstone industry.
