The name Aquamarine was derived from Latin phrase meaning “water of the sea.” This ocean blue stone is the birthstone for the month of March and evokes the beauty of the sky and the tranquility of the ocean; as the spring equinox also occurs in late March, the pale blue coloring of the stone also evokes the pastel hues of spring.
All gemstones are said to hold certain symbolic meanings and some believe they also hold guiding energies. Aquamarine is associated with the Throat Chakra in healing practices and restores or balances the energy of this particular chakra and “helps overcome the fear of speaking.” The stone also is known for its soothing properties, so grab an aquamarine gem during times of stress. Aquamarine also was once told to be the jewels of mermaids!
For a special and meaningful March birthstone necklace, incorporating aquamarine is a must! However, this soothing gem doesn’t have to be perfectly faceted to be beautiful. There are many ways to style and cherish this jewel of the ocean.
A Dew Drop of Aquamarine
A March birthstone necklace can feature a small faceted aquamarine pendant to dangle from your personalized moon phase charm. The Birthstone Satellite necklace features an aquamarine suspended from your unique moon phase. A delicate silver chain allows this necklace to be worn for evening events, but you also can dress it down.
Why choose one aquamarine when you can have a whole halo of the beautiful gemstones? Surround a significant moon phase with a halo of aquamarines for an infinite loop of soothing blue tide. The Apollo Birthstone necklace is set on a beaded cord for a casual appeal; of course, you also can switch out the beads for a satin cord or a shorter silver choker chain.
The abalone shell also symbolizes the tranquility of the ocean. Pair a polished abalone shell pendant with a sparkling aquamarine pendant. Many March babies are born under the water sign Pisces, so adding a fish charm or zodiac symbols next to abalone and aquamarine pendants creates the ultimate March birthstone necklace. You also can choose a zodiac necklace that features an aquamarine...and your moon phase! Then layer an abalone pendant with this classic piece.
A Tidal Pull
The moon has pull over the ocean. While every individual is born under a particular zodiac sign, we also are born under a specific lunar phase. Pair a custom moon phase pendant as part of your March birthstone necklace. These pendants absorb the light of the sun and exude a soothing nighttime glow. You can choose layered pendant necklaces that feature a moon phase and a small birthstone pendant displayed on separate chains. Or choose a style that features an aquamarine set within your unique moon phase.
For those who want a casual birthstone necklace that you can wear with any outfit, select a rough cut aquamarine layered with other symbolic necklaces. You can adjust the necklace so that it can be worn as a choker or a longer statement piece. We love aquamarine cut into obelisk shapes or just in their rough form and then layered with one of our classic moon phase pendants. For those who are concerned about layering multiple pieces, you also can select a moon phase birthstone necklace that features two necklaces in one. While one chain displays an aquamarine, the other holds your moonphase. Since these two pieces are connected, you don’t have to worry about tangles.
Whatever style you choose for your March birthstone necklace, choose a design that feels symbolic to you. Aquamarine is a versatile gemstone and it can be worn in so many different ways. But no matter how you style an Aquamarine, the soothing beauty of this ocean-hued stone will keep you calm…and let you channel your inner mermaid!
