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.

    Aquamarine & Gilt Sterling Filigree 1930s Bracelet by Fahrner

    , ,

    Gilded-sterling silver links with corded wire spirals hold collet-set faux aquamarines in this fabulous Art Deco bracelet by Fahrner. It 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.

    Aquamarine & Sterling Line Bracelet

    , ,

    This vintage aquamarine bracelet has square-cut glass stones channel-set in rhodium-plated sterling silver links with engraved edges. It is an excellent example of an Art Deco line bracelet, so popular in the 1920s-1930s. Longer than many from this era, this one has substantial weight and width as well as excellent construction and articulation. The concealed clasp has a safety catch. This bracelet is signed, but I cannot identify the maker. Because of its simple, classic lines, this bracelet coordinates well with more elaborate pieces from other eras. In fact, it adorned a runway model at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. She wore this jewel with fabulous 1950s diamanté chandelier earrings, which you can see here. Scroll down for a selection of pieces from different decades that coordinate with this beautiful bracelet.

    Aquamarine & Vermeil Sterling Leaf 1940s Earrings by Pennino Bros.

    , ,

    Curled, gold-plated sterling silver leaves adorned with aquamarine-glass stones form these lively ear clips by Pennino. The leaves are the same shape and finish this maker used in a series of 1947 brooches, called Sunburst.

These designs were not patented. These details are just for background – these ear clips are divine!

    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.

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.
