    Folklore says...

    Throughout history, Romans believed that if a frog figure was carved on an aquamarine, it served to reconcile enemies and make them friends. Romans also believed that the stone absorbs the atmosphere of young love: “When blessed and worn, it joins in love, and does great things.” Aquamarine was also the popular gift for grooms to give their bride following the consummation of their marriage. Aquamarine is known 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. It was also believed to render soldiers invincible.

     

    Also for love birds.

    In addition to being the birthstone for the month of March, Aquamarine is also the commemorative gem of the 19th wedding anniversary.
