March's stone is Aquamarine ("waters of the sea") is a blue variety of beryl. In ancient times aquamarines came to symbolize health and happiness. It was also believed that aquas could promote clarity and excellent mental health.
Why were they such a favorite for jewelers? The reason, we think, is two fold. First, aquamarines contain a beautiful blue hue and are not as hard to find as a Kashmer of Burma sapphire. In addition, we have many celebrity sightings wearing aquamarines, including our favorite Barbara Streisand. And, lately, Jessica Biel.
