Aquamarine stud earrings in gold, platinum, or silver, optional screw backs.
A light blue with the purity of water and sky, like wearing a warm breath of fresh spring air. Aquamarine is in the beryl family, which also contains emerald, heliodor, Morganite, bixbite, and goshenite. The deeper the blue, the more valuable the gem. Anything beyond very pale aquamarine is difficult to acquire, and we have a limited supply of these fine gems.
A March birthstone, aquamarine is considered a sailor's lucky stone.
