March's Aquamarine

March 13, 2015

Icy-blue and so elegant, the Aquamarine is the traditional birthstone for those born in March. Some say it symbolizes friendship and happiness.

My mother gifted me her beautiful aquamarine ring many years ago and I cherish it 'till this day. The mix of yellow and rose gold, aquamarine and rubies lends it self to work with any outfit. 

In ancient Babylon aquamarine was associated with mermaids. In some tales the stone is a particular treasure for the fishy maidens. In other stories the mermaid's tail either creates or is made of the precious stone.
