I cannot even believe we’re at the halfway point of the year. Time passes quickly when your socks are fun! June’s flower and birthstone are a great team—roses and pearls! The constellation for most of the month is Gemini, a perfect pairing for socks!

June’s actually got three birthstones associated with it, Alexandrite, Moonstone and Pearls. Both Alexandrite and Moonstone possess shifting colours that are impossible to capture in sock form, so I’ve made little gradients for you.

Alexandrite shifts from reddish to greenish.

Moonstones are pearlescent, glowing rainbows of green and blue, with purple and yellow on the edges. I actually super can’t convey the deepness of their colours and beauty, not even in socks.

Pearls are a little easier, with their beautiful, soft shades of white. Our O Lovelies in Pearl are a gimme as far as that gemstone is concerned! For the rest of your strand of socks, we’ve got lots of solid white with subtle shimmer and satin texture to dress up your look.

But have you seen black pearls? They’re probably my favourite and they’ve got hints of blue and purple in them.

The lovely companion flower to pearls is the rose and we’ve got socks with that distinctive bloom emblazoned,

And there are shades of red and pink called “rose” that range the spectrum.

Now Gemini, the twins, is almost too easy to symbolise with socks. So let’s pair these pairs with two packs. Each of these styles come in sets of two, for you to mix and match or have a spare.

Pretty pearls, romantic roses and double your money with Gemini. We’re halfway through the year with Summer Solstice to prove it on the 21st!
