Birthstone Jewelry Feature: March Aquamarine

Janice Stiles

March's featured birthstone is Aquamarine. This is an amazing stone and its name is perfectly descriptive. It is such a beachy, watery pale blue, similar to seawater. Although it can have inclusions, most stones have excellent clarity and transparency. Color ranges from the pale to deep blue that is often seen in the ocean.


Aquamarine is typically combined with silver or white gold when used in jewelry.

The light-colored combination works well together and adds a summery feel to any outfit. While aquamarine is most commonly faceted, it can be also cut as a cabochon, which gives it a different look.

Aquamarine is found all over the world, on almost every continent, although for many years it was thought to be just from Brazil. A few other areas are: Kenya, Nigeria, Madagascar, Zambia, Tanzania, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Russia.

Aquamarine has grown in popularity over the years, which has made its pricing a bit more competitive than it once was. Just like most every other gemstone, aquamarine gemstones range in size. While many are small, others can weigh up to a few kilograms. As with other stones, the value of an aquamarine stone depends on its color. A one-carat stone is about $675. Aquamarine can also be grown in labs. Lab stones will be less expensive than the mined versions, and are difficult to differentiate with the naked eye.

The color blue has long been associated with wisdom, virtue, and good fortune. For many centuries, people have dressed themselves in glittery blue stones, and the passion continues to this day.
