Knowing when to buy an aquamarine isn’t some magic sixth sense that everybody has but you. Or is it? In any case, you will have it when you read this post. Today, we’re going over all the perfect times to crack out this stunner of a stone.
The celebration of someone special is a must for jewellery. Birthdays are great because the day is all about that someone, so getting some aquamarine jewellery shows them that you not only care enough about them to buy them something beautiful, but you care so much you even remembered to get it for their day. This may not sound like much of an achievement, but you’d be surprised how many people forget birthdays.
Aquamarines are the official birthstone for March, so if your special person’s birthday falls in March then you couldn’t be in a more perfect spot to treat them to some aquamarine jewellery. However, if their birthday isn’t March, don’t feel like aquamarines are totally off-limits as a result. Maybe their favourite colour is the same lovely sky blue as aquamarines, in which case you’re going to great lengths to show them how well you know them. You could also get aquamarines if your favourite person’s eyes match the stone, this is easily the best way to get complementing jewellery!
Whether it’s Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Christmas, or any other winter celebration, jewellery is always a gift worth giving. The colour of aquamarines makes them a wonderful winter gift, representing the cold and the iciness outside. A present wrapped under a tree – or anywhere else – is every bit as exciting for the gift-giver as it is for the recipient, and an aquamarine is one hell of a gift!
Aquamarine earrings are a great choice for a wintertime gift because they easily suit the formal occasions that tend to happen around the holidays – big family reunions, religious gatherings, and so on – but they can also be a wonderful thing to wear just at home. This year especially, it’s important to get something versatile that will look every bit as good at home as it will anywhere else. Earrings are also great because they don’t tend to get covered up the same way that necklaces, bracelets, or vintage aquamarine rings do in the cold winter weather. Showing off the jewels you received in the dead of winter is difficult, so finding a workaround like that is key.
Typically, the done thing at weddings is the exchange of the wedding bands, which rarely – if ever – contain any aquamarines. But! This is where some creativity can come in handy. If you’re getting married, for example, you can treat yourself or your imminent bride with a beautiful piece of aquamarine jewellery that they can wear for the ceremony. It’s far from a tradition for grooms or brides to buy gifts for their partners on the wedding day, but it’s been done before time and again. A final surprise to show your intentions of love and commitment before the main event.
Another beautiful way to incorporate aquamarines into some wedding celebrations is to gift or pass down some aquamarine jewellery to your child if they’re the one getting married. The old classic of ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’ can all be knocked out of the park in one go with some inherited aquamarine jewellery. An antique piece would be old, but still manages to be new the person receiving it, it could also count as being borrowed for the special day – even if you do let them keep it afterwards – and it most certainly is something blue! It’s like it was meant to be!
We’ve only covered three great occasions to crack out the aquamarines, but there are indeed countless times that deserve to be bejewelled. An anniversary, the celebration of a significant achievement like a degree, or even just a perfect day. Get creative and think outside the box to find the perfect time to buy an aquamarine.
