June is one of the months that is lucky to have a lot of different options when it comes to your birthstones. There are three different recognized stones for June births, Moonstone, Alexandrite, and Pearl.
When I’m making June Birthstone jewelry I typically use Moonstone, in part because of the range of colors and mesmerizing opalescence that the stone is known for.
Right now, Earth Song Jewelry offers two different colors of Moonstone, Peach Moonstone and Black Moonstone, or Larvikite.
Technically Larvikite isn’t a Moonstone, but rather another stone in the Feldspar group (which includes Moonstone and Labradorite among others), but its similar appearance means that Larvikite has long been considered Black Moonstone despite some light chemical differences from classic Moonstone.
I’ve included a selection of both colors of Moonstone in this buying guide, which gives you a lot of options for June birthday gifts!
Handmade Moonstone Jewelry Gifts
One quick disclaimer before I get into the guide. The product photos I use on my website are accurate to the design of the jewelry, but the stones themselves are unique. The stones I use are going to be the same size, type, and shape, and generally similar in color and appearance, but they can’t be identical since I use 100% naturally formed stones and crystals, rather than lab-created versions of the same mineral.
As a nature-inspired handmade jewelry artisan, I think the variation between stones is beautiful. But it does mean that slight cosmetic differences exist between individual pieces of my jewelry, even jewelry made with the same pattern and same type of crystal.
Iridescent Larvikite Black Moonstone Pendulums
My stacked Larvikite Black Moonstone Pendulums are a beautiful pair of earrings for any occasion. Larvikite stones are naturally ethereal and mysterious looking, and the round shape of each stone in these earrings can make them more inviting, catching the light from all directions and showing off the different range of color and flash in each stone.
These earrings are dangling, but have a reasonable weight and are comfortable to wear even for a long time.
Plus, like all of my handmade jewelry, these earrings are made with hypoallergenic Sterling Silver, making them safe and comfortable for most people to wear. Better yet, Sterling Silver is low maintenance and long-lasting, so you’ll be able to wear these earrings for years to come!
Iridescent Larvikite Black Moonstone Jewelry Set
Love the look of my Larvikite Black Moonstone Stacked Pendulum Earrings, and want a full set? It just so happens I have exactly the jewelry set you’re looking for.
My Sterling Silver and Black Moonstone earrings are paired with a lariat necklace that allows you to determine the length and shape of your necklace every time you put it on. That means a necklace that works with almost any neckline, and is suitable for almost any occasion.
If you really want to show your love and appreciation for the people with June Birthdays this year, my Larvikite Black Moonstone Stacked Pendulums Set is a fantastic option.
Peach Moonstone Curves Earrings
Peach Moonstone is a slightly more colorful variant of Moonstone than the typical white stones. It’s a lovely coral orange, slightly paler than the inside of a ripe peach, with swirls of delicate changing color visible from the surface of the stone.
Like other Moonstones, Peach Moonstone does have a delicate flash of color, though it tends to be more in the white, yellow, and orange range of color rather than the blues of other Moonstones.
The pale color of Peach Moonstone is the perfect soft complement for your face, especially when combined with the delicate arches of my Curves Earrings
These handmade earrings are the perfect summer earring, showy enough for a night on the town, comfortable enough for everyday wear. And, just like all my handmade jewelry, I only use hypoallergenic Sterling Silver for these earrings.
Black Moonstone On Leather Bracelet
The last Black Moonstone jewelry for this guide, if you’re looking for a bracelet to match the set above, this Black Moonstone on Leather bracelet is a fantastic option. This bracelet can be worn as either a bracelet or an anklet, made with a durable combination of Greek Leather and Sterling Silver.
If you’re looking for a unisex June Birthday gift, this bracelet is also a good option. It harmonizes the beauty of the Larvikite with Sterling Silver, and the durability of the Leather of the band. No matter who you’re shopping for, this bracelet is a good option.
Petite Peach Moonstone Earrings
Last, but far from least, another earring option if you’re looking for a Peach Moonstone present. These Petite Peach Moonstone Earrings are a little smaller and more subtle than my Curves line of earrings, making them perfect for everyday wear, understated but formal dress occasions, and new earring wearers.
The single stones in these earrings also work to show off the very best of Peach Moonstone’s colors. Every line and swirl in the stone is eye-catching. Like most people, there is more to these earrings than you can see in a glance.
