Aquamarine stud earrings in gold, platinum, or silver, optional screw backs.
As faint as a winter sky, the elusive breath of blue brings an arctic serenity with it. Aquamarine is in the beryl family, which also contains emerald, heliodor, Morganite, bixbite, and goshenite. Goshenite is pure white beryl; it's rarely found but these pale shades of aquamarine come very close.
A March birthstone, aquamarine is considered a sailor's lucky stone.
Ancient civilizations believed that aquamarine was treasured by mermaids, and would protect sailors and purify water. Roman fishermen believed it would bring a good catch, and has been prized for enhancing communication and revealing inner truths. Queen Elizabeth so loved an aquamarine necklace and earrings she was given that she commissioned an aquamarine tiara to go with them!
