Aquamarine translates to ‘Water of the Sea’. It has traditionally been worn by sailors in the hope it would calm the waves and ensure them a safe passage on voyages. Another much loved theory is that mermaids’ tails were made from aquamarine, however this is yet to be proven!
Often formed within granite rocks, this beautiful blue stone is favoured for its light blue colour and is often paired with diamonds. Aquamarine is perfect for someone who wants to add a bit of colour to their collection without being too dark or striking.
