Posted on: 04/03/2019

March is finally here and spring is on the way! What better way to start the month than with the beautiful aquamarine birthstone? Yes that's right, if you were born in March then you have the aquamarine for your birthstone. Along with the equinox coming up on 20th March, we also have Mothering Sunday to celebrate on the 31st too. So, if you're looking to buy your Mum a Mother's Day jewellery gift, or if you want to buy a close friend a special birthday gift, then you're in the right place!

It's no secret that each birthstone is completely unique. With individual meanings dating back to ancient times, special powers and different colours, it comes as no surprise that birthstones are a popular gift choice.

The Colour of Aquamarine

The aquamarine is a transparent pale blue stone that comes from the beryl family which also includes emerald. The most popular and well-known colour is the pastel sea-blue aquamarine, and clear stones without green or grey are the most desirable. Regardless of colour, every aquamarine is uniquely beautiful in its own way and each one is loved for its sea-inspired tones.
