Birthstone for June: Using Pearls in Your Wedding


Your wedding is a celebration of everything special about you and your partner. Choosing details that express your uniqueness, and that of your relationship, is a great way to thread personalization throughout the event.

Incorporating your birthstone is a great way to customize your big day. Here, we share five modern ways to use pearls, the main birthstone for June, in your summer wedding.

Pearl Jewelry

Whether you opt for subtlety or boldness, pearl jewelry has come a long way from single strands. Accompany a simple dress with a bold statement necklace.

Pearl-Adorned Hair Accessories

You can find anything from a pearl-encrusted tiara to a tiny hair clip with just a few individual pearls, but we particularly like this pearl wedding hair comb in a floral pattern, embellished with pearls and crystals.

Wedding Dresses with Pearl Accents

With the dress being one of the main features, it’s a perfect place to incorporate some personalization. There are definitely dresses available with pearl details, but we love how this Chicago bride took customization to the max with this sash, handmade by her mother-in-law.

As with most things in life, pearl décor is best used in moderation. The most stunning weddings incorporate hints of a few complementary trends to create a cohesive overall look. Try pairing pearls with lace and peonies for a show stopping combination.

And if pearls aren’t your thing, check out the two secondary birthstones for June – alexandrite and moonstone.
