Platinum Jewelry Finds for March Birthdays: Aquamarine Birthstone
With a blue reminiscent of an exhilarating summer day or like a nautical backdrop to the perfect tropical vacation, it comes as no surprise that aquamarine is the gemstone equivalent to bridging both sea and sky. Deriving from the Latin “aqua” and “marinus” meaning “water of the sea,” aquamarine is considered the ideal protective talisman for those who travel by water. Cool and reflective, it prompts retrospection and quickens the intellect. It also encourages clear, heartfelt speech in personal and professional settings. Aquamarine and platinum is a—dare we say it?—match made in heaven and an especially suitable platinum jewelry gift for those born in March.
The shapes in these Art Deco aquamarine and diamond earrings from H&H Jewels really play up the gemstone’s lore as mentioned above: the swirls resemble the swell of the ocean as the tide comes in, or a welcoming breeze on days when the sun shines with all its might.
Can’t go wrong with Belperron! Bold and dynamic platinum jewelry was the order of the day in the 1960s, but never forget that great design is eternally chic because this aquamarine brooch via Gioielleria Pennisi can be instantly modernized on a lapel, scarf, or even attached to a velvet ribbon to rock as a choker!

An Art Deco-inspired aquamarine stunner from Shreve, Crump & Low plays with geometry to classic effect—100 years from now, in all likelihood, this ring will continue to be in heavy rotation as a signature platinum jewelry piece and as flawless as the day it was made.
An estate stunner from Coach House Antiques plays with geometry to clever effect: the crisp edges of the 47-carat emerald-cut aquamarine somehow manage to be both softened and enhanced by a frame of diamonds with a vine-like motif, especially evident along the corners. Such a classic design ensures that 100 years from now, this ring will likely continue to be in heavy rotation as a signature platinum jewelry piece and as flawless as the day it was made.
