Those born in March are lucky enough to have two birthstones – aquamarine and bloodstone. Aquamarine is the more commonly accepted birthstone, and its feminine pastel colouring and durability mean it is a popular choice for jewellery, particularly rings.
Pretty in pastel
Aquamarine is said to symbolise beauty, honesty and loyalty, which makes it a great choice if you’re giving jewellery as a special gift. Its pale greenish-blue colour means it looks stunning set in silver or white gold; you can find deep teal-hued gems, but it is the vivid blue aquamarine that is the most highly sought after.
Mined in Russia, India, Pakistan, Nigeria and the US, it is possible to find a variety of different shades of aquamarine when shopping for jewellery here in the UK, although the most valuable gems are said to come from Brazil.
Aquamarine rings are always a popular choice and Pandora’s Aquamarine March Birthstone Ring makes the perfect gift. You’ll also find matching aquamarine studs in Pandora’s range, which make a lovely set with the ring or gift by themselves. If you’re looking to really treat someone special, this Aquamarine and Diamond Pendant from Hatton Jewels is a stunning choice that anyone would love to receive!
Many Hatton Garden jewellers stock a selection of gemstone jewellery, so finding the perfect aquamarine pendant or earrings should be easy.
