With water coming at us from every direction this March, we’re reminded of one of our favourite gems: Aquamarine (that’s seawater in Latin). It is prized for its fresh, watery-blue colour, ranging from a pastel greenish-blue to the famed bright blue Santa Maria aquamarines from Brazil.

Aquamarine frequently grows in large clear crystals making it perfect for an impressive statement ring or occasion ring. It also happens to be the birthstone for March and makes a meaningful gift for a 19th wedding anniversary.

A close relative of emerald, aquamarine is a hard wearing gem that is suitable for everyday wear. It’s a gem you can dress up with diamonds or keep it clean and simple set in precious metal. It looks fab with cool silver or set in platinum for a crisp, clean look, or pair it with yellow gold for that summery sun-kissed vibe.
