The name “aquamarine” is derived from two Latin words: aqua, meaning “water,” and marina, meaning “of the sea.” Aquamarine’s lore includes that it has the power to calm waves and keep sailors safe at sea. March’s birthstone was also thought to enhance the happiness of marriages and it has been said that the gem gives the wearer protection against foes in battle, making the wearer unconquerable and amiable, and also quickens the intellect. Aquamarine evokes the relaxation of the sea. In ancient folklore, Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids, and was considered a stone of eternal youth and happiness. As a stone of symmetries, it is advantageous for meditation and self-revelation, a stone of prophets, shamans, healers, and mystics. These stunning earrings are truly outstanding specimens of aquamarine’s translucent quality that mimics a refreshing splash in crystal clear ocean water. Handcrafted in platinum, the diamond frame perfectly accentuates the beautiful shade of blue from the pear-shape gems.
