March Birthstone: Aquamarine

Can you believe that daylight savings starts in just a couple of weeks on March 9th! I am sooo ready to say goodbye to winter. March is still pretty chilly but the changing light reminds me that spring is on the way!!! The perfect stone to symbolize optimism and hope, translucent pastel blue aquamarine is both soothing and exhilarating. Just imagine immersing yourself in a pristine mountain lake under a soaring, cloudless sky. Capture that feeling in a gemstone and you have aquamarine! Our March Birthstone collection includes dainty oval earrings and slender tennis bracelets highlighted by glints of diamond accents. Aquamarine rough is found in South America and Africa in large, pure specimens making it ideal for cutting larger gems for trendy, outsized rings. Lucky March birthday girls!
