March Birthstone Baubles
This month is reserved for one of the most well-known beryls, aquamarine, which is thought to increase intellect and release anger and stress. Here are 9 pieces of jewelry set with the blue stone.
I’ve been waiting for March to come ever since I started this birthstone series back in July. As a March baby, I couldn’t wait to find the jewelry that went with my month and, inevitably, start building a wish list for myself.
To be honest, for a long time, I wasn’t a huge fan of aquamarine as my birthstone; I’ve always tended toward really bright, bold colors.
I have, obviously, since changed my tune about the stone, especially as my job in the industry has led to me seeing the best the gem has to offer. Not to mention as a diehard fan of the UNC Chapel Hill Tar Heels, I came to see that I could hardly argue with a stone that would also allow me to show my school spirit.
Aquamarine is, obviously, one of the better known gems in the beryl family.
The name “aquamarine” is derived from two Latin words: aqua, meaning “water,” and marina, meaning “of the sea.” The blue stone is thought to protect the wearer, bring courage, increase intellect and release anger and stress.
Here are nine pieces of jewelry that feature the blue stone. All prices listed are retail unless otherwise noted.
