Aquamarine is the March birthstone! Ideal Aquamarines are a refreshing sea blue, not too pale or green. The stone was once said to aid seafarers, making it an ideal gift for water lovers! Aquamarines look truly striking when cut into oval and rectangle shapes and they come in larger sizes. Remember this in year 19 of marriage because Aquamarines are the accepted gem for this special anniversary! Wearers of Aquamarines are said to receive love and affection, and you’ll love the Aquamarine for your next piece of jewelry!
