Sea Blue Aquamarine

From the palest sky-blue to a deep sea-blue, the value of an aquamarine is determined by the color which is determined by traces of iron, the more intense and vivid the blue, the more valuable the gem. The origin of Sea Blue Aquamarine® is lbadan, a city in the hiliy, forested region of southwestern Nigeria.

Aquamarine symbolizes youth, hope, health and fidelity. Legend tells that this soothing blue gem also places a soothing calm in marriage.

Sea Blue Aquamarine® can be found within several Le Vian® brands depending on its accent stones: with Chocolate Diamonds®, le Vian Chocolatier®; with Blueberry Diamonds®, Le Vian Exotics®.

"Le Vian® aimed to find the perfect balance between soothing blue deep blue for its Sea Blue Aquamarine®, the March birthdstone, which uses the more saturated blues of ® and brings out their pedigree with special Le Vian® cutting techniques. "

BLUEBERRY SAPPHIRETM

Throughout history, sapphires have always been associated with the color blue, perhaps most likely due to their name, which comes from the Greek word sappheiros (blue stone). Traditionally, sapphire symbolizes truth, sincerity, and faithfulness. In history, clergy members wore the gem to symbolize Heaven. In ancient Greece and Rome, the royals believed sapphires protected them from envy and harm. Sapphires have also been closely associated with romance and the royals, most recently in modern times. In 1981, Prince Charles gave Lady Diana Spencer a blue sapphire engagement ring. The same ring was later given to Kate Middleton by Prince William

But all sapphires are not blue and, in fact, come in a rainbow of colors including varying shades of blue as well as “fancy sapphires” in pink, yellow, orange, lavender, purple. Blues can be pure blue but may have a range from greenish blue to violet blue. The blue in a sapphire is the result of trace elements of iron and titanium; the more iron in the sapphire, the darker the blue.

Le Vian® offers both classic and contemporary looks with its Blueberry Sapphires® which were chosen from mines in Mozambique.

"Le Vian® utilizes exacting standards for its genuine sapphires, choosing only those with a rich royal blue, blueberry flavor for designs which feature the September birthstone"
