A SYMBOL OF YOUTH AND FIDELITY, THE AQUAMARINE is also thought to give wearers knowledge, foresight and inspiration. Aquamarine is derived from the Latin word for “sea water.” Like the emerald, it belongs to the beryl family. Aquamarine is the birthstone for March.

A member of the beryl family, this sister gem to emerald is typically light greenish-blue to blue with the highest quality being transparent. Many aquamarines are greenish when mined and cut, so most all aquamarines are heat-treated to remove the green component, which enhances their more preferred blue color.

Fashioned in 14k white gold, this elegant pendant features a square aquamarine surrounded by sparkling white diamonds.
