Which month were you born in? How fascinating it is to have each one represented by a specific gemstone! March belongs to bloodstone and aquamarine. During the AQUAMARINE MONTH starting today I would like to bring your attention to my curation of March birthstone aquamarine jewelry.
The March birthstone gemstones adorning those gorgeous earrings evoke serene visions of crystal-clear water and sparkling horizons of the seaside. Ilgiz Fazulzyanov gaining inspiration from the opulent forms of Art Nouveau and symmetry of Art Deco style creates a beautiful visual narrative.
WHAT COMES TO YOUR MIND WHEN YOU HEAR “AQUAMARINE”?
MARCH BIRTHSTONE FUN FACT: The word is a combination of two Latin words aqua (water) and marina (the sea). Therefore, the aquamarine gemstone owes its name to the beauty of the sea. The 78.33ct Santa Maria oval aquamarine is the focal point of this spectacular Boucheron necklace I discovered during Paris Couture Week.
CAN YOU SPOT WHICH PAIR OF THESE ASSAEL PEARLS EARRINGS I AM WEARING ON THE NEXT PHOTOS?
I feel aquamarine crystal jewelry evokes the tranquility of emerald seas. Wearing the gemstone combined with pearls in the form of beautiful earrings brings a sense of harmony to the appearance.
HOW DO AQUAMARINES MAKE YOU FEEL?
I have to admit I have always loved wearing blue jewelry. Greenish blue shades, fresh watery hues… Aquamarine combined with sparkling sapphires closed in the sculpture-like form of this stunning aquamarine birthstone ring from Lydia Courteille Marie-Antoinette Dark Side collection is a definition of royal opulence. One thing is sure – aquamarine definitely rules this month!
HOW DO YOU STYLE YOUR AQUAMARINE JEWELS?
There is something special about feeling the weight of this beautiful flower-shaped aquamarine statement ring from Arunashi on my finger. Aquamarine jewelry designs can be a perfect accent for your spring wardrobe evoking it the same way as March brings nature back to life.
DO YOU BELIEVE IN THE SUPERPOWERS OF GEMSTONES?
Aquamarine was used by sailors to bring them good luck on the seas and to ensure a safe voyage. I don’t want to tempt fate either. Aquamarine March birthstone jewelry like these stunning earrings designed by Lydia Courteille shows that providence can be glamorous!
DID YOU KNOW THAT AQUAMARINE TONES MAY DIFFER?
They range from deep greenish blue to light blue hues. How would you describe the color of the aquamarine jewelry design in the photo? Let me know in the comments! In this multi-shaded bracelet, Piaget set 18K gold with the emerald-cut aquamarine 29.20ct, blue sapphires, black opals, and diamonds, creating a breathtaking piece called Azzurro Bisazza Manchette.
DO YOU HAVE AN AQUAMARINE JEWEL IN YOUR COLLECTION?
Brazil among other places, such as Mozambique and Pakistan, has been an important spot for aquamarines for March birthstone jewelry. São Paolo-based Carol Kauffman designs push the boundaries of traditional craftsmanship while paying homage to colorful works of nature.
HOW DO YOU FEEL WEARING AQUAMARINE-ADORNED PIECES?
Every gemstone represents certain qualities in our lives. Aquamarine is considered a symbol of youth and health. Trying on this one-of-a-kind Buccellati jewel was definitely evoking my inner goddess. Adorned with diamonds and the aquamarine gemstone it appeared on a catwalk for Giambattista Valli collaboration with Buccellati. The collection was an interpretation of female charm and our unexpected nature.
SINCE SELF-PURCHASING IS ON THE RISE DOES THIS APPEAL TO YOU WHEN IT COMES TO JEWELLERY?
The first gemstone my Brazilian husband gifted me with was indeed aquamarine. The Brazilian state of Minas Gerais for the past two centuries has been an important source of aquamarine. Nature for sure has its ways of creating beauty. No wonder why I find these Azza Fine Jewellery aquamarine-adorned hoops so appealing.
I FEEL THAT AQUAMARINE IS ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST POPULAR AND WELL-KNOWN GEMSTONES. DO YOU AGREE?
Aquamarine gemstones, often free from inclusions and clear as water, symbolize spiritual purity. These magnificent aquamarine March gemstone earrings designed by Lydia Courteille gleam and flicker with an energetic sparkle. The icy blue hoops constructed with 25 rectangular aquamarines put their owner in the spotlight wherever they go.
DO WE HAVE ANY PISCES IN MY GEM SQUAD?
If you were born between 19 February and 20 March aquamarine is also your birthstone and you might be lucky enough to win some aquamarine March birthstone jewelry! Being the last zodiac sign in the astrological year Pisces is considered to be ruled by elusive fish. The symbol of fish is also a focal point of the work of incredible Wallace Chan. The creation process of the artist draws inspiration from the works of Mother Nature allowing him to create precious objects the world has never seen before.

LET ME KNOW IN COMMENTS WHAT MAKES AQUAMARINE SO SPECIAL TO YOU?
It is worth mentioning that aquamarine belongs to the bigger group of minerals. The beryl family does not only include pale blue gemstones but also peach-toned morganite and greenish-blue emerald. The diverse spectrum of aquamarine’s blue tints has been beautifully exposed by Hemmerle aquamarine jewelry designs. During my visit to their atelier in Munich, I had an opportunity to try on these extraordinary earrings and learn about Hemmerle craftsmanship.
