June Birthstones: Two is always better than one

06.06.2013 + Upper Canada Mall + No Comments

June babies are the lucky few that are born in a month with two birthstones, alexandrite and pearl, and both can be paired with every outfit under the hot, June sun.

Alexandrite is a rare gemstone with a sensational feature – its surprising ability to change colours. Green or bluish-green in daylight, alexandrite turns a soft shade of red, purplish-red or raspberry red in incandescent light.

Try incorporating this stone into your look by choosing big, bold statement pieces like cocktail rings and necklaces with alexandrite details.
