All About Aquamarine by Peggy Li on

I've noticed a lot of searches on my handmade jewelry site recently for "Aquamarine" -- and why not? This beautiful semi-precious stone is the color of water, a clean fresh blue gemstone perfect for Spring and Summer fashion! So... the featured gemstone this month -- Aquamarine! In crytal lore, aquamarines are said to instill courage, attract friends, and aid in communication. I am an aquamarine horder, I have tons of stones just waiting to be transformed into jewelry pieces... what are you hoping to find? Do you prefer cut stones or smooth tumbled nuggets? I'm traveling to the Tucson Gem Show this year, and I've got to create my shopping list!

Check out these handmade jewelry styles featuring aquamarine stones in earrings and necklaces at
