March’s birthstone is the cool, blue aquamarine. These stones are closely related to emeralds in their make-up, and have been recognized for centuries for their ocean-like hue. The aquamarine has had many roles, including a good luck charm for sailors and sea-farers. It is also the traditional gift for a 19th wedding anniversary.

Pale or turquoise blue glass is often used to imitate the semi-precious stone, with beautiful results. Aquamarine charms and beads are perfect for ocean-inspired jewelry, and can provide a bit of cheer for everyone waiting for beach weather to come around.
