March: Month of Aquamarine

The March birthstone, aquamarine, was thought to cure heart, liver, and stomach diseases—all one had to do was drink the water in which the gem had been soaking. Early sailors believed that aquamarine talismans, etched with the likeness of the sea god Neptune, protected them against ocean dangers.

 

History of aquamarine

Aquamarine's name comes from the words "aqua" and "mare," meaning water and sea, from its intense blue-green color. Because of its resemblance to the ocean, sailors used to wear talismans made of aquamarine depicting the god Neptune, who ruled the seas. With the help of their god, they believed the aquamarine would offer them protection from the elements.

Science of aquamarine

Aquamarine is a variety of the mineral beryl. Beryl generally forms inside granites as magma (molten rock) cools deep inside the Earth. Beryl comes in many different colors, ranging from clear to the deep green of the stones we know as emeralds. Aquamarine, though, is usually blue-green in color due to the presence of iron within the mineral's structure. Less desirable yellow or clear aquamarines can be heat-treated to produce the vibrant blue-green hue.

 

-Product Care

Follow these simple steps to keep your jewelry looking its best

  • Always store jewelry separately; on a tube, in a box or in an anti-tarnish pouch (precious jewelry only).
  • Always remove jewelry before swimming, bathing, doing household chores, or using abrasive cleaners. Remember, some household cleaners contain chlorine bleach; these will cause discoloration of gemstone jewelry.
  • Apply beauty products such as perfume, hairspray or deodorant before wearing jewelry as certain chemicals can leave a residue on your jewelry that can harm or dull silver, gold and gemstones.
