Aquamarine - birthstone for March

We love welcoming March as it means Spring is just around the corner! Those of you with birthdays in March are lucky enough to have the beautiful aquamarine as your birthstone, symbolising hope, courage and quick-thinking.  It is also believed to protect the wearer on journeys across the sea.

                            

Aquamarine was once believed to be the treasure of mermaids, and was used by sailors as a talisman of good luck, fearlessness and protection. It was also considered a stone of eternal youth and happiness.

At Honey Willow we use A-grade moss aquamarines. Moss aquamarines are natural, freckled stones which range in colour from light blue to a dark teal-grey. These mesmerising stones, reminiscent of the sea, create a perfect accent to spring and summer wardrobes.
