The birthstone for March is the icy blue Aquamarine. The seawater color of aquamarine has given this gemstone its name as the name “aquamarine” is derived from the Latin word for seawater. The Greeks and the Romans knew the aquamarine as the sailor’s gem, ensuring the safe and prosperous passage across stormy seas. In Medieval times, the stone was thought to reawaken the love of married couples. To the Egyptians it was a symbol of happiness and everlasting youth.

The birthstone for February is the stunning purple Amethyst. Amethyst is said to strengthen relationships and give its wearer courage. At one time, only royalty could wear the gem. According to old Roman myth, St. Valentine was a priest who travelled around performing marriages known for wearing an Amethyst ring carved with the image of cupid. This is how the tradition of Valentine’s Day started. This is the reason why Amethysts are regarded as symbols of love and are the designated February birthstone.
