June’s Birthstone: The Pearl

Summer is in full swing (for those in the Northern Hemisphere) and businesses throughout the world are readying themselves for the forthcoming Father’s Day Sales.  In addition, retailers worldwide are preparing for their “Summer Clearance Sales”, “Fall Fashion Sales” and of course, CHRISTMAS!  Most consumers do not realize that Fall & Christmas product lines are bought and shipped to distribution centers, and marketing campaigns drafted, 3-6 months before the actual season!  OROLATINA® is no different.  Although we typically do not offer nearly as many sales as our competitors (mainly because we regularly maintain deeply discounted pricing across virtually all of our product lines), we do put in a considerable amount of work into the sales we do offer.  We work tirelessly to research popular products & designs so we can offer the highest quality 14 Karat Gold Jewelry available in the world!

June’s Birthstone is the opalescent Pearl.  OROLATINA® offers a variety of Pearl Jewelry.  Pearls come in many forms: Freshwater, Saltwater, white, black, pink, etc.  Mollusks produce them when a tiny particle of sand (or other small, hard particle that irritates the soft tissue) becomes trapped in the soft tissue if the shellfish. Ideal pearls are round and smooth.  Most fine pearls are “Cultured” pearls.  The process is the same as with natural (“Wild”) pearls, however, human intervention was required to cause the mollusk to produce it.  Wild pearls are exceedingly rare, and in days long past, hundreds, possibly thousands) of mollusks would have to be opened (killed) to find a single pearl; hence their ancient reputation for being extremely valuable.  For more information on Pearls, see the Wikipedia Article: Pearl.

Another welcome change many of us see in June is the Summer Break for school children.  While I am quite sure many parents will beg to differ on this being a “welcome” change; for those of us who have to commute daily through one or more school zones, the reduction in the traffic backups is certainly a nice change to the morning routine!

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there!
