March is the month of spring and renewal, so it's no surprise that the birthstone for March is simulated aquamarine, a stone that shimmers with the beautiful blue of a spring sky. At Walker Metalsmiths, we offer a complete line of stunning hand-crafted Celtic jewelry set with this richly hued stone, including our hand-crafted Claddagh rings and an extensive range of Celtic rings and earrings set with these Celtic birthstones.
Aquamarine, whose name is Latin for "seawater," has been prized since Roman times for its beauty and elegance. The stone varies from light blue-green to deep, sky blue. The color and depth of the blue will change depending on the light, adding to its mystery and appeal.
Simulated Aquamarine Birthstone Meaning
Over the centuries, there have been many civilizations that attributed great power and meaning to aquamarines. In Medieval times, the stone was believed to protect soldiers in battle as well as enhance the loving bond between married couples. For this reason, many men gifted their wives or sweethearts with aquamarine jewelry. Today, a gift of Celtic earrings set with simulated aquamarines or a hand-crafted custom designed Celtic ring is a loving gesture she’ll appreciate long after her birthday has passed.
In ancient Greece and Rome, aquamarine stones were seen as the sailors' stone, protecting those at sea. Sumerians believed it represented everlasting youth and happiness. Walker Metalsmith's beautiful Celtic birthstones reflect joy in their bright, clear blue and the elegant mountings we've designed to showcase them.
In Christianity, the simulated aquamarine has come to symbolize the Apostle St. Thomas, who frequently sailed to distant shores to preach the gospel. Celtic jewelry often incorporates the aquamarine in crosses and other pendants to reflect both faith and Celtic heritage.
Walker Metalsmiths Captures the Beauty of Simulated Aquamarine
The unique hue of simulated aquamarines reflects the sparkling clarity of both sea and sky, making it one of the gemstones we most enjoy working with. The color looks particularly lovely set in the subtle shimmer of sterling silver. Walker Metalsmith’s custom designed Celtic earrings and other Celtic jewelry set with simulated aquamarine birthstones capture the serene beauty of nature. They are a stunning example of the metalsmith's ability to capture and highlight the natural beauty of these gemstones. Our line of aquamarine Celtic jewelry includes dangling Celtic earrings that feature classic Celtic elements such as Trinity stars, elaborate scrollwork, and Celtic knots.
