Birthstones Series - March Aquamarine
Aquamarine is the official birthstone for the month of March as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912. It is also commonly recognized as the zodiac stone for the constellation of Scorpio (although it is usually referred to as beryl in this regard).
Aquamarine evokes the purity of crystalline waters, and the exhilaration and relaxation of the sea. It is calming, soothing, and cleansing, and inspires truth, trust and letting go.
It is said that Aquamarine will provide its wearer with everlasting youth and happiness, provide courage, cure laziness and quicken the intellect. Aquamarine can replace anger and negativity with mental peace and clarity, providing the wearer with emotional and mental balance. For these reasons it is considered to be an effective treatment for anxiety.

ADORA by Simona Original Design
Aquamarine is the blue variety of Beryl, being mined mainly in Brazil, but also found in Nigeria, Madagascar, Zambia, Pakistan, and Mozambique. The gorgeous aquamarine pendant featured in the ADORA by Simona original design pictured on the left comes from Santa Maria de Itabira mine in Brazil, where some of the highest quality specimens of brilliant blue stones are mined. The pendant is a 30.5ct antique cushion cut flawless aquamarine, set in vermeil (14K gold over sterling silver) and enhanced by 23 white sapphires.
The pictures below show the difference between a raw aquamarine stone and a cut, polished and enhanced stone. They are both beautiful!
Happy Birthday to all of you born in March!
