Pearl Colors to Celebrate June’s Birth Stone

On this lovely last day of June, it’s time to pay one last tribute to this month’s birthstone, the pearl. Pearls come in a huge variety of shades, each with their own distinct vibe.

Marquise Engagement Rings

For some reason the marquise gets a bad rap. It’s really not fair, because they’re incredibly beautiful when done right. True, one with the wrong cut will get “the bow tie” effect, where the center of the diamond’s facets look dark, like a black bow tie. But for the most part they’re lovely.
