March’s birthstone is aquamarine, and the gem’s soft blue hue is perfect for spring jewelry. Aquamarine and emerald are both members of the beryl species. Unlike emerald, however, large aquamarine crystals can usually be found with excellent clarity, which makes for beautiful finished gems. Aquamarine is available in a range of colors, from light blue greens to more intense, deeper blues in larger stones. Because aquamarine is a durable gemstone, it is an excellent choice for all kinds of jewelry, including everyday pieces.
This year, the top ten colors for spring include bright yellow, red, and green, along with soft rose, rich peach, and light blue. Aquamarine’s clear blue tones are a beautiful complement to bright primary colors. This versatile gemstone also complements the lighter side, matching well with a range of soft colors, including rose, peach, and, of course, blue.
