June Is Coming Up Roses

June is here and so we celebrate the official flower for those born in the month of June, the Rose!
There are many myths and legends about the origins of the tradition of a birth flower. It is believed that birthday celebrations originated in the Roman Empire and the origins of birth month flowers, such as the Rose, could be said to date back to these times. During Roman birthday celebrations family and friends offered congratulations and brought gifts. The gifts included gemstone jewelry, such as the Pearl, and also flowers, such as the Rose.  Of course, you don't have to be born in June to wear our lovely Rose pieces.
