June birthday girls are lucky, they have two beautiful birthstones to choose from. As a jewelry designer, I struggle with June because Alexandrite is the official birthstone, but extremely expensive. Swarovski markets their light amethyst crystal as their June birthstone selection and for us designers that use crystal stones in our jewelry, we also use the term ‘Light Amethyst’. While Alexandrite comes in a variety of colors, ranging from blue to yellow, and pink to purple, we’ve adopted the pastel, light purple version for this month. Why light amethyst has been adopted as the color choice, I’m not really sure. But it is a beautiful, delicate stone and pairs really well with pearls.
Here are some of my favorites for this beautiful stone:
Let’s not forget the brides! Light Amethyst is perfect for a bride with a lavender color theme. These darling earrings are from my wedding shop: Lavender Gold Earrings – $12.00
