Aquamarine is derived from a Latin term that means “water of the sea.” That’s fitting for the stone, as its crystal-clear appeal evokes calm and tranquil vibes that can make you feel more peaceful just looking at a piece of jewellery with an aquamarine stone.
It’s also the birthstone for those born in March, so aquamarine jewellery makes a perfect gift for anyone with a March birthday or anyone who loves the look of the stone and everything it represents.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at 10 beautiful pieces of aquamarine jewellery to give as gifts (or to get for yourself!).

But, this aquamarine and white gold necklace looks great no matter what you pair it with. The aquamarine gemstones provide a beautiful contrast to the traditional white gold surrounding their cushion shape. Because the necklace itself is so sophisticatedly-simple, it gives the stones the opportunity to be the real focal point of the piece.
