Celebrate March Birthdays with These Alluring Aquamarines [SLIDESHOW]

MARCH 07, 2016

Ranging in color from translucent pale blue to deep teal, aquamarines channel one of Earth’s greatest wonders—the ocean—and they were once believed to calm waves, protect sailors at sea, and enhance the happiness of marriages. Commonly mined in Brazil, the beryl commands attention when polished and placed in a traditional setting or left raw and natural. Either way the aquamarine’s cool color easily complements spring outfits, making it a natural choice for March’s birthstone. The following are this year’s most captivating designs.
