For me, the name aquamarine immediately brings to mind a stunning pastel blue sky, or the bright deep blue color of the sea. In fact, aquamarine is derived from the Latin word aqua, meaning water, and marina, meaning the sea. And if you have a loved one born in March, they simply must have an aquamarine gemstone in their jewelry box.  

 

For centuries, it was called “The Sailor’s Stone,” due to its sea-like colors. The gem was thought to protect sailors and people traveling over water. Aquamarines have long been thought of as a symbol of youth, health, hope and fidelity. 

 

Often confused with blue topaz, aquamarine stones are usually light in tone and range from greenish blue to blue-green. The Beryl gemstone is mostly mined in Brazil, but can be found in Nigeria, Madagascar, Zambia, Pakistan, and Mozambique.

 

The aquamarine gemstone has little to no yellow in it, which makes it look great in many settings with different colored metals and gemstones. Aquamarines can be worn in rings and bracelets with minimal risk if the settings are designed to protect the gems.

 

You don’t have to be a lover of aqua, or a March-born baby to enjoy the sparkle of the beautiful aquamarine; this is a year-round gem to treasure. Aquamarine creates a beautiful accent to spring and summer wardrobes, and is a stone that looks great for daytime fun or for an evening out with your friends or lover. It was long thought that Aquamarine has a soothing influence on married couples, making it a great gift to celebrate 19th wedding anniversaries as well!
