Bridal Blue Jewelry

Aquamarine takes its name from the Latin aqua marina meaning seawater.  And is said to come from the treasure chests and jewelry boxes of mermaids – so it has strong associations with the sea.

The blue – and greenish-blue – shades of this beautiful gemstone are also sure to remind a bride, in the years to come, of her wedding by the sea.

So choosing aquamarine bridal jewelry for a beach wedding is a lovely idea.

For a bride who would like to uphold the tradition of wearing ‘something blue’ on her wedding day – aquamarine jewelry would be the perfect choice too.

Aquamarine is available in a wide variety of pretty jewelry designs – so its also great for gift giving.  A bridesmaid or a maid/matron-of-honor who’ll be attending a bride at a beach wedding is sure to treasure – like the mermaids – a gift of aquamarine.

Incidentally, you may be interested to know that aquamarine is said to instill the feelings of peacefulness, stillness and tranquility, to be a lucky stone for sailors, and promises a happy marriage.  Also that aquamarine is the birthstone for March – and a part of the same family as the emerald – the beryl family.
