As the gorgeous birthstone of June, pearls have had a long and rich history, seen on royalty, stars, and celebrities. Although many of you will think of the classic string of pearls, this humble gorgeous gemstone is becoming increasingly popular – seen in everything from vintage and Edwardian styles, to modern and sleek settings. In fact, we’re seeing more celebrities rocking pearls both on the red carpet and on the street.
