Moonstones Are Marvelous: 9 Jewels in June’s Alternate Birthstone



It’s the dreamiest gemstone of all

If I had just been able to hang in there, been born only two days later, I would have been a moonstone baby. Don’t get me wrong, emerald is exquisite, but there’s just something so tremendous about moonstone. The way it glows, as though a piece of the moon is really present in each and every gemstone. How it seems to have mystical powers and brings light to any setting it lives in. I could just go on and on about how much I love moonstone—and, I have—but a picture is worth a thousand words (and I have nine). Have I mentioned how happy I am that designers really seem to dig moonstone right now? Don’t ever change.
