Sorellina 18K one-of-a-kind aquamarine cocktail ring
The color of aquamarine, March’s birthstone, completely lives up to its name, evoking the calming waters of the sea from the crystal clear blue waters of the Mediterranean. It also conjures up the exotic deep vibrant hues of tropical island beach getaways and the blue greens of the Pacific and Atlantic oceanic waters. It is a stone that calms, clears the mind, and creates a tranquil, almost hypnotizing feeling. Meanings for aquamarine are more plentiful than most and include tranquility, clarity, the ability to communicate, vitality, purity, hope and truth.

As the month of March approaches, it is time to take a moment and appreciate the symbolic birthstone for the month of March- Aquamarine. This beautiful gemstone is a precious form of Beryl such as Emerald and Morganite, and is renowned for its captivating, sea-blue coloration.
Aquamarine has a serene beauty all its own and is so beloved that it has even become the stone to represent the 19th wedding anniversary. This rekindled love of Aquamarine began in the Victorian Era, as its ocean-inspired blue color was thought to bring comfort and hope. Today, Aquamarine still offers this same reassurance, and is often worn as a talisman of protection, prosperity and love.
The most coveted of all Aquamarine colors is a transparent blue, which often reflects the light with an understated pastel hue, and sometimes displays a warm greenish or golden shimmer. Aquamarine with this vibrant and mesmerizing coloring is known as “Santa Maria” and is particularly rare, highly sought after and one of the most beautiful gemstones in existence.
Depending on the cut, Aquamarine also has an impressive and unique charm that is further demonstrated through its mesmerizing light refraction. For example, when cut in a princess cut, Aquamarine’s pear-shaped table, brilliant facets and double refraction create a vivid sparkle that is truly captivating.
The star of the Aquamarine family is nothing short of a dream-like beauty that, from ancient to modern times, has been so much beloved. March babies should consider themselves lucky to have this breathtakingly gorgeous gemstone as their birthstone, and all who recognize its beauty should be privileged to witness the calming Aquamarine hue that makes a bold statement of serenity.
