It isn't just a pretty colour, the stunning shade of blue aquamarine gemstones flatter almost every complexion. The stone's popularity isn't new either – it dates back to the Greeks, whose sailors wore aquamarine amulets to protect them from Poseidon's anger.
However, just because the gem has been around and admired for a while, it doesn't mean you can't add some sparkle to your outfit in a refreshing new way. Let's dive into some ideas of how best to wear the March gemstone!
The laws of colour
Before we go into detail, it's important to talk about the general rules of colour coordination. Red, yellow and blue are the three primary colours you always want to consider when making your choice, with green, purple and orange the dominant secondary colours.
You always want to make sure you match primary with secondary pieces to make your ensemble stand out in the best way. So what do you wear with aquamarine jewellery? Do like Mindy Kaling at the Met Gala!

Donning a gorgeous white gown, Mindy added some aquamarine sparkle with gorgeous dangly earrings and a statement ring. Whites and neutrals are always lovely combined with the cool blue glitz of aquamarine.
Even if you're not heading to the Met Gala anytime soon, you can glam up your next romantic evening rendezvous with some elegant but stunning stud earrings and maybe a delicate belcher bracelet to balance your bling.
