The hues of the sea: Aquamarine
In March we are already dreaming of Summer, diving into the sea and splashing in pools, and this makes us think of aquamarine!
Named after seawater, aquamarine’s fresh watery hue is like a cool plunge into a refreshing pool. In the past, this gemstone was believed to be the treasure of mermaids and was used by sailors as a talisman of good luck.

According to ancient traditions, carrying an aquamarine is supposed to guarantee a happy marriage and to make its owner content and rich. Moreover, this gemstone is believed to have many healing properties for the body, some connected to skin and throat.
To us at Augustine Jewels, aquamarine does not only resemble the sea in Summer, but also the cold Arctic landscape. Our Arctic Collection is inspired by the cool blue waters of the Arctic and the white of the icebergs glistening in the sun like diamonds. The collection is made from aquamarine gemstones set in 9ct white gold.

If aquamarine’s beauty hasn’t convinced you yet, let’s go over the gemstone characteristics. Aquamarine is a blue variety of beryl, coming from the same family as emerald and morganite. It mainly comes from Brazil, which is the leading producer, but also from the mines of China, India and Madagascar. The best gemstones combine high clarity and transparency and are almost free of inclusions, thus sparkle wonderfully!
We hope you can experience that sparkle yourself thanks to our Arctic Collection.
