Shining A Spotlight on Aquamarine Jewelry: Everything You Need to Know About the March Birthstone

March babies are blessed with aquamarine as their birthstone, a gemstone renowned for its captivating blue hues and rich symbolism. Aquamarine has a fascinating history, beginning with its origins and continuing through its significance in numerous cultures. In this guide, we will go over all you need to know about the March birthstone, from its significance and meaning to its popularity in the realm of fashion and fine jewelry.

The History and Etymology of The Aquamarine

The Sumerians and Egyptians adorned themselves with aquamarine, as evidenced by archaeological discoveries of aquamarine beads buried alongside Egyptian mummies, symbolising adornment both in life and beyond the grave. 

Aquamarine possessed religious significance among the Hebrews, who believed it was associated with purity and divine favour. Legends say that the High Priest of the Second Temple wore aquamarine stones etched with the six tribes of Israel for spiritual safety and guidance.  

In ancient Greece, skilled artisans converted aquamarine stones into intricate intaglios, depicting themes from mythology, history, and daily life, demonstrating the Greeks’ appreciation for the beauty and symbolic qualities of aquamarine.

Aquamarine is named after the Latin words “aqua” and “marina,” which mean “water of the sea,” which is suitable given its magnificent blue hues reminiscent of the ocean. Aquamarine has long been renowned for its calming powers and association with tranquillity, making it a symbol of peace, clarity, and emotional balance.

The Symbolism of The March Birthstone

Aquamarine was once thought to be a mermaid’s treasure, with supernatural abilities that protected sailors and provided safe passage over the oceans. The March birthstone is believed to improve communication abilities, foster harmony in relationships, and give strength for confronting adversities. Its soothing blue tones bring visions of beautiful skies and tranquil seas, providing wearers with a sense of peace and replenishment.
