March is here! And with March the beautiful blue stone aquamarine, comes to the fore. Aquamarine is found in a myriad of blue hues: the name comes from the Latin term 'aquamarina' meaning 'water of the sea.' Like seawater, aquamarine can be pale to light-blue, dark-blue, blue-green and green-blue. The more saturated the colour, the higher the value, although almost all aquamarine is typically a lighter blue tone.
At Grays, we discovered lots of stunning pieces adorned with this March birthstone. Here are some of our favourite picks..
