MARCH BIRTHSTONE

Posted by on


If you are born in March then your stone of choice should be an aquamarine. This stone is a member of the same mineral family as emerald and morganite.

The name comes from the Latin aqua marina, water of the sea. The most valuable colour is darkish blue, similar to a very pale sapphire, although there are various different shades. Aquamarine has been highly valued in jewellery for a long time, aqua coloured glass pieces intended to imitate this stone have been found which were at least 2,000 years old.

For centuries, this timeless gemstone has been a symbol of youth, hope, health and fidelity. Since this gemstone is the colour of water and the sky, it is said to embody eternal life. It was long thought that Aquamarine has a soothing influence on married couples, making it a good anniversary gift.

Aquamarine is also said to calm thoughts and help emotional and physical balance.

I don't offer aquamarine as a standard option for any of my rings as it’s a slightly more expensive stone and more complex to purchase, but would be happy to quote any item you are interested in.

These two special order rings were made from a mixed parcel of Aquamarines I purchased. Most of these are so pale they are almost colourless but they are very pretty nonetheless.
