March Birthstone Jewelry

    

The March Birthstone is Aquamarine, and if your birthday is this month, Happy Birthday!

Birthstone Jewelry is a popular and thoughtful gift, not just for someone celebrating a March birthday, but for anyone on your gift list. The bright and beautiful colors add sparkle to many outfits, and the lovely Aquamarine crystals in the March collection may add just the perfect touch to a favorite outfit. A customer at one of our holiday shows purchased several different earring and pendent sets from our Birthstone Collection to match the various colored gowns her bridesmaids would wear at her upcoming Spring wedding. 

The idea of twelve gemstones for the twelve months dates to Biblical times. In the Old Testament Book of Exodus, the Breastplate of Aaron, a high priest, included twelve gemstones representing the twelve tribes of Israel. In the New Testament Book of Revelations, twelve gemstones are listed in the foundation of the New Jerusalem.

In 1870 the world-famous Tiffany's published a poem linking the months of the year with a birthstone. While the poem was likely a marketing promotion for the famous New York Jeweler, it has survived and is quoted today. The verse for March is: 

Who in this world of ours their eyes

In March first open shall be wise,

In days of peril firm and brave,

And wear a bloodstone to their grave.

And in 1912, the American Jewelry Association published a list of the monthly birthstones, which remain valid today and list the Aquamarine for March.
