As the birthstone of June, pearls make a fantastic June gift. The pearl originates from oceans, lakes and rivers around the world. Ancients in the Middle East believed pearls were teardrops fallen from heaven.
Pearls are unique because they are the only gemstones made by living creatures. Natural pearls are rare and difficult to retrieve so man invented the technique of culturing freshwater pearls from mollusks.
