Jet of the Day - Beads For Blanche




Aquamarine, the birthstone for March and has a rich history of lore and legend. Neptune, God of the sea gave the gift of the watery blue stone to mermaids. Throughout ancient worlds the stone is often associated with victory during battle and protecting sailors at sea.

When it comes to love, Aquamarine was also considered the most appropriate morning gift to give to a bride by her groom following the consummation of their marriage. In Medieval times, the stone was thought to reawaken the love of married couples.

So whether you are saling into the sunset with a new love or rekindling romance, remember to bring some aquamarine as it is always better to give than receive!

Thanks for reading,
