Heart Shaped Aquamarine Jewelry – March’s Birthstone


aquamarine heart shaped jewelry Aquamarine is a beautiful blue gem that I personally think is gorgeous, it also happens to be the birthstone for March. The gem is said to symbolize happiness and I would certainly be very happy to receive one of these beautiful pendants.

Silver really helps to bring out the pale blue of the aquamarine which is why I prefer the silver aquamarine pendants over the more traditional gold ones, however with the increased use of white gold I’ve found that these also show off the aquamarine beautifully. These heart shaped pendants make a fantastic gift for that someone special whether for a birthday or a special date such as Valentines Day.

Did You Know…….Aquamarines are closely related to Emeralds – they are both members of what is known as the Beryl family.

Aquamarine – A Beautiful Gem

Brazil is the leading producer of aquamarines and can boast that some of the largest (and most rare) aquamarines come from there. In fact for Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation the President and people of Brazil presented her with a gift of a matching necklace and earrings featuring oblong aquamarines and diamonds as you can see opposite. The Queen loved them so much she commissioned a matching tiara to be made

Aquamarines can also be found in some African countries such as Zambia and Nigeria as well as Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The name aquamarine comes from the Latin words aqua – water and mare – sea. This reflects the hue of this beautiful stone which is usually a beautiful blue, or blue-green like the ocean.

The first documented wearers of this gemstone were the ancient Greeks. Greek sailors used aquamarines on amulets believing that it would protect them from Poseidon’s wrath.

It’s considered extremely good luck to give someone their birthstone as it helps to enhance their own natural traits.

The traits associated with people born in March are the same as those that are associated with aquamarine – friendship, courage and fidelity.

Aquamarines are also considered to be great as a stress reliever, now I’m not sure exactly how a gemstone is supposed to help with stress, but I’m willing to try it out and see if it works 🙂

Some believe that wearing Aquamarine increases the wearer’s ability to experience love – what better reason so give someone an aquamarine heart shaped ring?

Are you looking for Snow White figurines? I have compiled a great selection of collectible Snow White figurines for you to look through. The Disney Princess who is ‘the fairest of them all’ makes a beautiful subject for these figurines that are enjoyed by young and old alike.

I have tried to feature mainly Snow White on this page, but there are a few figurines of the Evil Queen and the Seven Dwarfs as it seems quite inevitable to add these figures from Snow White’s fairy tale.

Snow White Figurines from Precious Moments

Adorable Snow White Figures You Just HAVE to Have!

Here are some beautiful Snow White figurines from Precious Moments.  The figurines are made from bisque porcelain (which Precious Moments are known for) and are gorgeous enough to make you believe in fairy tales again!

Bisque porcelain is basically a white, unglazed ceramic. It was commonly used to make porcelain dolls during the Victorian era right through until the 1930s. Bisque porcelain figurines are made from casts and what gorgeous casts they often are!

Bradford Exchange Snow White Figurines

I think Bradford Exchange figurines are always exquisite and I haven’t been disappointed with the Snow White figurines that I could find.

Lenox Snow White Figurines

This beautiful Snow White figure is made from hand painted ivory fine china and is accented with 24k gold. It is absolutely perfect for any figurine collector. Lenox prides itself on producing fine china collectibles from figurines such as the Snow White ones featured here to tableware and they are such an established company that no less than six presidents since 1918 have commissioned them to produce state services in their beautiful ivory fine china – like the china used in this figurine.

 Lenox Disney Showcase A Serenade For Snow White Figurine

Founded in 1889 by Walter Scott Lenox the Lenox company is renown for it’s fine pieces, including a wonderful range of Disney princess figurines.

Snow White’s story wouldn’t be the same without her friends – the seven dwarfs – as part of it. “Hi Ho, Hi Ho it’s off to work we go…” I used to love singing along that song when we were off on a family walk or any other excuse I could think of really!

I love the fact that Lenox has so many of their Snow White figurines with one, some or all of the seven dwarfs (of course they also feature them all on their own as well)

Lenox even have a great Evil Queen figurine – “Try an apple dearie,” if you were like me you were telling Snow White not to eat the apple when you watched the movie and yet she did – why do characters never hear you when they’re on screen?

This figurine always reminds me of my god daughter when I see it as there’s a funny story that involves her and the Evil Queen……..

 Lenox Disney Showcase

One evening when she was younger her grandparents took her and her sisters to a maze that was made out of maize and where the Disney Princesses were on show. The girls loved exploring the maze and coming across the different princesses.

The evil queen was also there disguised with her basket of apples and what does my (always hungry) god daughter do? She helps herself to an apple and after she’s taken a big bite her grandfather leans over and says to her – ‘that’s not the poisoned apple is it? – apparently the apple was spat out so quickly it was amazing. Poor girl!

Jim Shore Snow White Figurines

Accomplished artist Jim Shore has been in partnership with Disney since 2005, adding his own style to Disney favorites such as Snow White. When speaking of his range – Disney Traditions – Jim says “I’m extremely proud of my association with Disney. I can’t think of a more important name in American popular culture.”

Snow White Figurine From Royal Doulton

Royal Doulton are known for their bone china products which includes these hand decorated bone china Snow White figurines. Most people have heard of the name Royal Doulton, but the company’s original name was just Doulton until 1901 when they came to the attention of the Royal family and Edward VII gave them a royal warrant allowing them to change their name to Royal Doulton.

Whatever Royal Doulton product you have the name is synonymous with quality and it seems quite appropriate that a princess such as Snow White should be made into a china figurine by a company with such a regal name!
