Blue skies, budding flowers and songbirds are a few of spring’s charms, lifting spirits and reminding us all of new life and prosperity. Women with spring birthdays mimic the beauty seen in nature and are characterized by their kindness, compassion, peace and elegance. They give hope and happiness to everyone they come in contact with, radiating positive energy. With March birthdays fast approaching, it’s time to find the perfect present for that special woman in your life. It’s always a challenge to find a meaningful gift that properly reflects your adoration. If you’re looking for a way to celebrate that special woman, a birthstone jewelry piece is a wonderful way to show her what she means to you.

The March birthstone is aquamarine. Its name comes from the Latin word aqua, meaning water or sea. According to ancient legend, this gemstone originated in the treasure chest of mermaids and was believed to bring good luck to sailors, bringing them home safely from their voyage. Its pale blue hue is said to calm the wearer, clear the head, and bring serenity. Aquamarine is light in color, ranging from a pale blue to an airy bluish-green. The stone imitates the sparking ocean, reflecting light like the waves in the sea. The color  intensifies in larger stones, but remains true to its original hue. This gemstone is the perfect complimentary piece to any woman’s spring wardrobe, adding a gorgeous pop of color.

Pretty pastels are everywhere this spring, gracing the runways and filling city streets. There are so many fun ways to transition a wardrobe from winter, and accessories are the best place to start! Colored handbags are a must this season, and incorporate effortlessly into everyday looks. If a bold bag is a big commitment, try a playful scarf or ballet flats. Try several shades and find the perfect hue. Jewelry is another way to bring a splash of color to subtle style. Statement pieces can transform a daytime look to a chic, night out ensemble in a flash, making your entire wardrobe more versatile. She will love pairing her birthstone piece with basic outfits to add an elegant touch. The stone’s classic color can be worn all year long, and will quickly become a favorite in her jewelry wardrobe.

An aquamarine birthstone piece is sure to be a standout addition to any woman’s collection. This March, take her breath away and show her how thankful you are for the joy she brings to your life with a piece of jewelry that celebrates her.
