Amazing Aquamarine: Discover March’s Birthstone
Posted on March 01 2017
If you love beautiful blue gemstones, you’ll adore aquamarine. Known as March’s birthstone, aquamarine naturally occurs in a range of blues, from the palest of baby blues to the intense aqua evocative of a warm sea that the stone is named for. Fashion designers have embraced the milkier shades of aquamarine, making them one of 2017’s hottest trends, while traditional transparent aquamarines are being cut for use in bridal and fashion jewelry.

Simon G. does amazing things with aquamarine. This oval pendant is one of our favorite pieces – there’s also a matching ring that’s a complete show stopper – and we love the way the rich blue-greenish tones of this stone are set off by the surrounding halo of diamonds. There’s diamonds in the bail as well – a style detail that really sets a piece of Simon G. jewelry apart.
Marco Bicego embraces the milky aquamarine in this 18K gold ring for his Lunaria collection. The stone is cut in a checkerboard pattern, adding an attractive element of intentionality to the pleasing organic shape. A substantial yet wearable ring; ideal for anyone who enjoys the finer, unique things in life. Great for the March birthday!
