March Birthstone Jewelry

March birthstone jewelry features aquamarine, a gemstone named for the Latin words for sea and of the water. It was believed to protect sailors and warriors in battle and has been a symbol of youth, hope, health, and fidelity for centuries. In addition to its legendary powers, aquamarine has been popular since ancient times because of its pleasing color, which ranges from sky-blue to greenish-blue. Although the cool hue of the stone itself is most flattering to women who look best in a cool color palette, those who look best in warm colors will find aquamarine pieces in gold and rose-gold settings in this collection. See styling tips for adorning today’s fashion with vintage aquamarine jewelry.

  • Theodor Fahrner bracelet with gilded sterling & aquamarines
    1920s-1930s filigree bracelet by Theodor Fahrner
    $ 1,495

    Aquamarine & Gilt Sterling Filigree Theodor Fahrner Bracelet

    , ,
    This Theodor Fahrner bracelet is spectacular! Each gilded-sterling silver link with corded wire spirals holds a collet-set faux aquamarine. This fabulous Art Deco jewel is an excellent example of the type of filigree this maker is known for. The book cited as a reference indicates that the filigree pieces were made post-1932, but the same source dates the maker’s mark to the 1920s. I don’t think the date matters – this bracelet is exquisite! It has a concealed clasp and safety catch. Scroll down to see a sterling Fahrner necklace that looks lovely with this piece.

  • Flower petal earrings in gold-washed sterling with aquamarines
    Flirty 1940s earrings by Pennino Brothers
    $ 195

    Aquamarine & Vermeil Sterling Flower Petal Earrings by Pennino Bros.

    , ,
    These lively flower petal earrings with aquamarine-glass-stone centers were made by Pennino Bros. in the 1940s. The curled, flirty flower petals in gold-washed sterling silver are the same shape and finish this maker used in a series of 1947 brooches, called Sunburst. The stone settings are the same as their Bulrush brooch and earrings set from the same year. According to Brunialti, the patent pending mark on the earrings refers to the clip mechanism. These designs were not patented. These details are just for background – these ear clips are divine! And by facing each other, they frame your face to perfection.

If statement pieces, which are in vogue right now, are your style, this jewel is for you!

    Aquamarine, Diamanté & Vermeil Sterling 1940s Coro Bracelet

A well-crafted Retro Modern design by Adolph Katz for Coro’s high-end line, it features aquamarine-glass-stone centers and diamanté set in gold-plated sterling silver with a fold-over clasp. The safety chain is a replacement. This piece is another wonderful example of period design and manufacture from one of the best!

    Aquamarine, Diamanté & Vermeil Sterling Flower 1940s Brooch by Mazer Bros.

    , ,
    This tall and graceful brooch by Mazer Bros. is a fine example of the Retro Modern style. This substantial, stylized flower features a large, faceted cushion-cut aquamarine-glass stone as its focal point. The gold-washed, sterling silver setting is further embellished with four, faceted oval-cut aquamarines along with pavé-accented gold swirls. This pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. Pieces of this size with a gold-plated finish often don't survive as well as this brooch has. But costume jewelry was well-made in the 1940s by companies of this maker's stature.
