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.
Case in point: these absolutely incredible pools of blue from Kanners. The matched shield cuts are not only striking in shape, but also serve to emphasize the exceptional quality of the aquamarines. The best metal to set the best of jewels? Platinum, of course!
Aquamarines are truly celebrated in this bracelet offered by Edigem LTD. The tumbled beads lend a more natural, tactile quality… while platinum shines with unmistakable presence by elegantly enhancing with round-cut brilliants.
Forever in love with this resplendent early Art Deco necklace from Lang Antiques, featuring the most gloriously-cut pastel aquamarine and a handcrafted platinum frame sprinkled with diamonds. The definitive power pendant!
The shapes in these contemporary platinum earrings courtesy of Hamilton Jewelers wonderfully pay tribute to aquamarine’s lore: 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.
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.
Is it magic? The crisp edges of the 47-carat emerald-cut aquamarine in this ring via Coach House Antiques somehow manage to be both softened and intensified by a frame exhibiting a leaflike motif. This would make a standout love token—an expression of enduring refinement, like platinum itself—for your one and only.
The verdict is in: this March, give the gift of forever.
