Since 1912, the beauty of aquamarines has been used for birthstones to those born in the month of March. Aquamarines get their name from two Latin words meaning “water” and “sea”, probably because of the aquamarine’s color, which ranges anywhere from a pale, almost colorless blue, to a deep blue-green or teal. The most valuable of aquamarines are usually those that are colored with a shade of deep aqua. While many other jewelers will heat treat or oil-process their stones to hide flaws, our jewelers at Mosteller Diamonds & Gemstones give you the highest quality of gemstones available without heating or oil-processing. We want to provide you with aquamarines and other gemstones that will be flawless from day one, and stay that way for the life of your jewelry.
