Natural Aquamarine Jewelry – Is it just the Color or the Real Gemstone ?

Hello there, while researching birthstone jewelry for March I found it difficult to find natural aquamarine jewelry. Because aquamarine is also a color, many ‘aquamarine’ jewelry pieces simply had that color crystals or beads and were not made with the actual aquamarine gemstone. Luckily on our recommended artisan jewelry store NOVICA, all of the aquamarine jewelry pieces are in fact made up with the natural gemstone. So today we feature some of their stunning jewelry from the East – India, Bali and Thailand. In that region aquamarine chips are often used to make unique and interesting designs.  We love to support Novica as they are a fair trade company and their win-win pricing benefits both the artisan and the customer.

Most of the aquamarine jewelry is set in sterling silver and is in the form of Necklaces, Bracelets and Earrings. I have grouped matching jewelry sets or closely matching pieces, however each individual item can be ordered separately. These are all individually handmade pieces and usually only one or just a few of each item is made. So if you like something be sure to place your order soon!

  1. Hi Mandy.
    I love the Goddess set from Nareerat. It looks simple yet elegant. My birthday is in May and I believe my birthstone is emerald. Do you have any nice emerald collection coming up? Thank you.

      Hi Cathy, my birthday is also in May 🙂 Yes, the May birthstone is the emerald and I have loaded the May collection now on May Birthstone – Emerald Jewelry Hope you see something you like.

  2. I love the aquamarine, it has a look similar to tourquise, but has a much better warmer look. I wish this was my birth stone. I have a dumb diamond.

      Hi Debra, so you must have recently had a birthday – happy birthday! While researching the April diamond birthstone, I learnt that diamonds come in so many colors! Known as ‘fancy colored diamonds’ – I always thought these were treated diamonds but they are natural gems, I quite like the champagne color diamonds. More info here

We'd love to hear from you :)
