Aquamarines, the birthstone of March, are a classic favorite, and always a great choice for an accessory armory-update. Aquamarines, whose name is derived from the Latin phrase for “water of the sea”,  are said to evoke feelings of calm, sympathy, trust, and friendship, as well as boasting natural holistic healing properties for stress-reduction, pituitary and thyroid health, respiratory complications, and chronic allergies. 

Historically it has been said that sailors kept Aquamarines to ensure safe travels. And now you too, may imbue your life with an overarching sense of balance and harmony by wearing aquamarine jewelry on an everyday basis. 

Similar to the Emerald, Aquamarines belong to the Beryl family, the mineral ranging from azure blue to vivid cerulean. One of the most diverse families of gemstones, Aquamarines offer a style for every taste, preference, and price range. 

Procured primarily from mines in exotic lands such as Pakistan, Madagascar, Brazil, and Mozambique, Aquamarines origin is differentiated by varying intensities of the stone’s blue tone. 

One of the most beautiful and versatile stones, Aquamarines are often featured in earrings, necklaces and pendants, rings, and bracelets. So what are you waiting for? Get yours today!
