Aquamarine History and Lore
As you browse vintage and antique engagement rings, do you find yourself drawn to ones featuring aquamarines? You're not alone in your captivation. The allure of this gemstone dates back centuries.
The Mermaid Stone
The word aquamarine is a combination of two Latin words: aqua, meaning "water," and marina, meaning "of the sea." Legend has it the aquamarine was discovered in a mermaid's treasure chest, and had been blessed by the god of the sea. As far back as the second century, B.C.E., the aquamarine was thought to have healing properties, and was used to treat a variety of illnesses.
Good Fortune Talisman
Being far from home for extended periods of time, and perhaps holding tight to the mermaid legends associated with it, sailors adopted the aquamarine as their good luck charm. They believed it had the ability to protect them during long sea voyages, and that the stone's power could be increased by immersing it in sunlit water.
The Communication Facilitator
Whatever channels travelers venture upon, it is believed they will meet clearly and openly when in possession of an aquamarine. Today, that belief extends to the realm of communication, meaning if you wear a vintage or antique aquamarine engagement ring, you and your partner may experience genuine, heartfelt communication, hence the long-held notion that the gemstone can heal fractured relationships.
Even before the Romans came to appreciate the aquamarine, it was a prized gemstone in earlier civilizations. Several aquamarine stones have been discovered in Egyptian tombs. The Egyptians believed the aquamarine was a symbol of happiness, and could grant everlasting youth. Any bride who chooses an aquamarine engagement ring is selecting a small piece of history, and perhaps ensuring a happy married life.
