March Birthstone

March Birthstone



Though today Aquamarine is most often thought of as March’s birthstone, in ancient times it was often called “mermaid’s treasure” and prized above all others by sailors! Named for its resemblance to seawater, it was a must-have for Roman and Greek adventurers who believed the stone would keep them safe at sea!

As a member of the Beryl family, it possesses many of the same qualities as its “cousin” the emerald—and in fact, blue-green shades of Aquamarine were most prized during Queen Victoria’s reign.

Whether you’re shopping for an upcoming birthday or just want to spoil yourself with a little “mermaid treasure” to keep you protected throughout life’s big adventures, we invite you to shop our selection at Walton’s!
