Birthstone for March – Aquamarine
March babies amongst us probably already know that Aquamarine is the birthstone for this month. It is a dazzling blue stone that ranges in colour shades from an icy, transparent blue, through to a softer, light blue and a deeper, more opaque bluey-green. However, whether your birthday falls in March or some other month, you are just as likely to become entranced by this gorgeous gem which is part of the beryl category of stones – along with famous Emerald and the less commonly known Morganite.
Aquamarine is a durable stone, registering at between 7.5 – 8 on the Mohs scale. This makes it a great stone to have in an heirloom piece, however, as with all our gemstones, we recommend that you treat it carefully, as you would with any investment!
White Gold perfectly complements the cool tones in the blue gem. Here are our top picks of Aquamarine rings from across our range.
