Featuring pieces from Mark Henry
June is one of those months that doesn’t have one reigning birthstone—it has three. You could absolutely argue that pearl is the “main” stone for those born in the month of June, but with alexandrite and moonstone being such powerful options, what’s a person to do? I mean, if it were me, it’d be all about moonstone. Or maybe alexandrite. Or maybe pearl? No, moonstone. What the heck, a birthday girl can have all three, right? I mean, if my birthday were in June. Which it isn’t. Does anyone want to trade?
If it is alexandrite you’re looking for, look no further than Mark Henry. The brother-led jeweler (one named Mark, the other, Henry), celebrates the power of the color-changing gemstone, its collection created completely to show it off.
