Mermaid Sapphire: The Big Stone for Engagement Rings
Why are they called “mermaids”?
Luminous Gem Queen
According to legend, in the deep seabed, there is aquamarine with the energy of seawater surge. Cherished by mermaids, these gems emit mystical powers when exposed to sunlight. Because of the blue color of the water of life, aquamarine symbolizes the beginning of spring, and is also regarded as the birthstone of March, and it can be called “like a fish in water” with Pisces in March. This kind of blue gem-like sea water, its English name Aquamarine, originally means “sea water” in Latin. It also has many charming nicknames. For example: ‘Mermaid Stone’ is as transparent and beautiful as the bubbles that rise when a mermaid in mythology appears in the sea. Because it is brighter and more transparent under the light at night than during the day, people call it the “Queen of Luminous Gems”.
Ancient greek legends
In ancient Greek legends, the legend of aquamarine can capture the soul and essence of the ocean. Therefore, Greece has the custom of engraving the image of Poseidon on aquamarine and worshiping it. The ancient Romans regarded aquamarine as a talisman of immortality. And believe it can bring back old love.
