13 Pieces Of Aquamarine Jewelry For All You March Birthday Mermaids


And nervous public speakers, too!

March is finally here, which means spring is on the horizon. What better stone to represent this month of awakening and rebirth than the gorgeous aquamarine? Its name, derived from the Latin translation for “water of the sea,” comes from its blue-green ocean-like color, and, well, it has us dreaming of warmer days spent seaside to come.

In ancient tales, the gem is said to be treasured by mermaids, thanks to its calming and soothing properties which evoke the relaxation and purity of the sea. It’s believed to be both healing and cleansing, as well as helpful in letting go—especially anger.

The aquamarine is also closely associated with the throat chakra and is thought to help overcome a fear of public speaking, putting nerves at ease and helping its carrier speak with clarity.

We rounded up 13 gorgeous pieces of aquamarine jewelry that make for the perfect gift for all of the Pisces, Aries, everyday mermaids, and terrified public speakers in your life. Check out our picks, below.
