A March birthday is symbolised by Aquamarines and are surely one of nature's wonders. Stare into one of these beautifully cut, clear gemstones and you are instantly transported to the shores of an idyllic island. Instead of a crystal, you are looking into the transparent waters of the ocean of your dreams.
For centuries, this beautiful stone has been thought to bring youth and health. It's the colour of water and the sky and is said to represent eternal life. Although there are many myths and legends about the aquamarine stone, the Greeks and Romans viewed it as 'the sailor's gem' and relied on it to ensure their safe passage across stormy seas.
The Aquamarine gemstone has also been associated with fidelity, friendship, health, hope, and youth for centuries. It is often referred to as the stone of communication.

Birthstones are shrouded in myth and legend – they're traditionally believed to bring good luck and therapeutic powers. It was thought that wearing the gemstone during its associated month helped to enhance its abilities, the idea being that you should own all 12 and wear each one depending on the time of year.
