Aquamarine - A dive into the March Birthstone

Posted by Adel Tchavdarova on Mar 15, 2019 1:12:52 PM


Birthday shopping for March babies is a breeze with the gorgeous aquamarine gemstone!


Whether you’re looking to buy a gift for a friend, a loved one, or even just looking to treat yourself because your birthday is in March (don’t worry, we’re not judging!), an aquamarine is a fantastic and thoughtful gemstone to purchase for the occasion.

With its shallow seawater hue, you can brighten up a jewellery set or add a subtle and elegant pop of colour to those who are afraid to go for coloured gemstones!



Tell me more about Aquamarines

Aquamarine is in the same family as emerald and is a colour variety of the beryl mineral . Its name comes from the Latin words ‘aqua’ (water) and ‘marina’ (of the sea), and previously it has been used by sailors to calm the waves and keep them safe out at sea.

In contrast, many superstitious people also use it to further enhance the happiness of a marriage. Whatever its use or spiritual connection, no person can deny the fresh beauty, clear lustre and sparkle of an aquamarine.

Due to the natural occurrence of aquamarine, this gemstone can be used for any type of jewellery. It is best used for large cuts on jewellery such as cocktail rings (or dress rings), meaning you’re more likely to find larger carats of this particular gemstone, due to miners frequently coming across enormous raw minerals of this type of beryl.


It is mined in extremely high elevations (approximately 15,000 feet) in Pakistan’s Karakoram Mountains, but can also predominantly be found in Brazil.

This gemstone can be found in various different shades of blue and is often mistaken for blue topaz. The best thing about aquamarine is that it is generally flawless and transparent, which makes it great for reflecting off lots of light and being extra sparkly!

So if you’re looking for gifts to buy a loved one whose birthday is in March, it would be a very thoughtful idea and a sentimental gift to go for an aquamarine piece of jewellery.
