A new month means a new birthstone! For those born this month, the March birthstone is aquamarine. A captivating stone flaunting a range of shades from green to blue, Aquamarine lives up to its water-inspired name. In honor of March birthstone, we take a look at some beautiful aquamarine jewelry.
The Aquamarine Gemstone
Just like emeralds, the aquamarine gemstone is part of the beryl family of minerals. The name “aquamarine” comes from Latin for “sea water”– which perfectly describes its color. Available in light green to rich blue, an aquamarine stone is as fresh as the waters it’s named after.
Historically, aquamarines were used by sailors during their voyages as it was believed that the special stones would calm rough waters and promote safety. On land, it’s also believed that aquamarine fosters marital bliss. Whether or not you believe these superstitions, what wife wouldn’t be happy with some fine jewelry as a gift? In addition to being the March birthstone, aquamarine is also the gem of the 19th wedding anniversary.
Sublimely sparkly and dressed in a crisp hue, aquamarine jewelry is a beautiful stone to wear.
