Orbits I with Aquamarine

Orbits I with Aquamarine


Sterling silver circles surround beautiful, natural aquamarine stones.

Aquamarine, the birthstone for March, is a beautiful gemstone that comes in many different varying shades of blue and greenish-blue. With shades of the bright blue skies and beautiful oceans, aquamarine brings about pleasant, happy feelings. It is said this stone originated in the treasure chest of mermaids, and has long been considered a sailor’s lucky stone.

Aquamarine is related to the emerald, both belonging to the beryl family. The blue of the aquamarine is a result of the presence of iron, and this stone is special because it is often inclusion-free, resulting in a pure, clear blue. The more intense the color, the more the stone is valued.

Most of the aquamarine mined in the world comes from Brazil, although it has also been found in other parts of the world including the United States and some African countries. Aquamarine is often heat-treated to bring out the blues and limit the yellow tones, which produce a greener stone.

The earrings are 1-1/2 inches long and the earwires are handmade from sterling silver.
