Aquamarine: Cool Blue

Posted by on Mar 3, 2010 in Gems | 12 Comments

Pale, elegant aquamarine captures the beauty of the sea: its pastel blue tinged with a hint of green. The icy color is as fresh with earth tones as with other pastel shades and the perfect accompaniment to grey and navy.

Legends say that aquamarine is the treasure of mermaids, with the power to keep sailors safe at sea. In addition to calming the waves, aquamarine is also said to have a soothing influence on relationships, making it a good anniversary gift. A dream of aquamarine means that you will meet new friends.

This sophisticated gem is the birthstone for March and the gem for the 19th anniversary.  But, hey, if you’ve already made it to your 19th anniversary you may not need it!
