Aquamarine is one of the most prized precious gemstones.

Birthstones hold special meaning for many people, making it popular to use them in jewelry to honor special occasions, including, of course, birthdays and the birth of children. The birthstone for March is Aquamarine, which means seawater in Latin. It was historically thought to calm waves and keep sailors safe at sea. It also symbolizes youth, hope, and health.

Aquamarine stones come in varying shades of greenish-blue, and are prized for their clarity. They are favorites of many people, not just those with March birthdays. They make great stones for fine jewelry because of the way they glitter and gleam, even under muted light, and they are also fairly durable. Aquamarine stones are mined naturally, mostly in Brazil, but also found in other countries, including the United States.

A Great Gift for All Ages

Aquamarine jewelry makes a great gift for women of all ages. Whether it’s for a girlfriend who has a March birthday, a “push present” for a mother whose baby was born in March, or just a friend who loves the gemstone’s gorgeous hue, here are designers to consider if you’re shopping for aquamarine pieces.

If you’re looking for aquamarine jewelry with a real wow factor, Simon G.’s Passion Collection has an array of stunning, luxe pieces—including fashion rings and gemstone necklaces—that feature the gemstone prominently with gorgeous diamond accents. Designer Simon Ghanimian originally wanted to be an engineer, and he brings that level of detail and precision to each piece he creates. The Passion Collection is full of pieces that are eye-catching and unforgettable. It even features an aquamarine engagement ring for the bride-to-be that wants something gorgeous and unique.

Aquamarine gemstones can take many shapes—they can also be made into beads. Jewelry company Honora pairs aquamarine beads with their freshwater pearls to create beautiful necklaces, earrings, and bracelets that can be worn casually or dressed up. The pieces are a subtle way to honor the March birthstone, and make great gifts that are a bit more affordable for those on a budget.
