What Makes the June Birthstone So Special?

What Makes the June Birthstone So Special?

If you know someone with a birthday in June, they are lucky enough to have the beautiful pearl as their birthstone.

It’s easy to see why the pearl is a firm favourite in the world of jewellery. Their timeless and enchanting look has made them a wardrobe staple for decades. And while the traditional look of the pearl necklace is still loved by women of all ages today, Claudia’s love for all things unique, has led her to design more contemporary styles suitable for all personalities, occasions and outfits.

As the only jeweller dedicated to specialising in pearl jewellery, you can probably guess why our favourite month of the year is June.

The Meaning of Pearls

Until the 17th century, pearls were believed to cure a wide range of diseases, including insanity. Even today pearls are still known to represent wealth, power and longevity. As gems of both sea and water, many people believe pearls offer protection and attract good luck – making them a thoughtful June birthstone gift and a special birthday present for people born on any month of the year.


Here at Claudia Bradby, we have always been drawn to the power of pearls and their ability to offer both elegance and professionalism. Pearl jewellery is an emotive gift to give and be given and signifies the idea that we are #StrongerTogether. Even if we can’t be together in person, we can find comfort knowing that we’re always here for one another – jewellery is a special reminder of this and something the wearer can treasure forever.  In fact we think our pearl jewellery has a unique ability to forge these connections, underpinned as it is by strong narratives and meaning.

June Birthstone Gifts

As our full handcrafted jewellery range includes the powerful pearl, you’ll find a huge choice when it comes to finding the perfect June birthstone gift for someone special. Whether it’s a pearl jewellery gift for an 18th birthday or a 60th birthday in June, Claudia has cleverly designed her jewellery to suit all ages meaning they will stand the test of time.

Here are a few of our bestsellers:
