Aquamarine – Birthstone for March

March 3rd, 2009 by Classic Charms in Birthstones; Share

With its shades of Mediterranean blue, aquamarine was destined to be forever associated with the sea.  The ancient Romans believed Neptune, the king of the sea, gave aquamarine to the mermaids, and sailors in the Middle Ages purportedly slept with it to ensure a safe passage.  Today, this almost hard-as-diamond beryl is still associated with long passages.  It is also given as the 19th anniversary stone, as well as the birthstone for the month of March.  Celebrate her birthday this month with a lovely aquamarine charm from Classic Charms.
