Our aquamarine jewelry experts have put together a March birthstone guide to help you have a successful shopping experience. We’re sharing the meaning behind the beautiful gemstone along with a few of our favorite aquamarine jewelry options we think she’ll love.
A Brief History of the Birthstone
Many historians believe birthstones can be traced back to biblical times. There are mentions of birthstones adorning the breastplate of Aaron as he went to battle. They were believed to provide powerful protective energy when worn in unison, as he did upon his armor.
Around the 8th century, those who collected and wore each of the 12 birthstones in unison began to form a different belief. It became a common practice to wear each birthstone individually during the month it represented. The new belief spread, and it became common practice to harness the incredible benefits each stone provided during its designated month.
It wasn’t until the 16th century that these beautiful gemstones became an officially recognized birthstone tradition. It was now common practice to collect the birthstone assigned to the month you were born rather than keep all 12 in your possession.
As time has moved on, we still honor the traditional wearing of our own birthstone. Over time, it has progressed to wearing the birthstone of a child or loved one or simply wearing the stone that catches your eye.
What Significance Do Birthstones Hold?
Although birthstones may no longer hold religious meanings, it is still widely believed these special gemstones symbolize physical and emotional well-being while offering good fortune, among other positive benefits and strengths.
What is March’s Gemstone?
If you find yourself shopping for March birthstone jewelry, the breathtaking aquamarine is your stone. Aquamarine consists of a rare, silicate material that is often found in granite. While the aquamarine species come in a variety of hues, from light sea blue to deep blues, the traditional March birthstone is a light blue-green that mimics clear ocean waters.
The Meaning Behind the Aquamarine Birthstone
The name of this chosen March birthstone comes from its piercing yet soothing color. The gemstone was believed to provide protection and a safe voyage to sailors while out at sea. In fact, the March birthstone was said to bring a sense of calm to the waters as well as to the wearer while providing peaceful energy. There is even a legend that speaks of mermaids with tails made of aquamarine. These mermaids were believed to guide and protect the men as they navigated the seas.
Aquamarine also symbolizes:
- everlasting youth
- rekindling of love
