Made with intention and purpose; to be worn and treasured - this is the heart behind all of our handmade jewellery pieces.Birthstone jewellery is a beautiful keepsake to honour the ones we love, and the ones we've lost. A precious gemstone to represent each month of the year.
The birthstones of March are Aquamarine and Bloodstone and Aquamarine is also the wedding anniversary gemstone for 19 years.
Aquamarine means 'water of the sea' and ranges in colour from pale blue to dark blue-green. It summons visions of calm blue waters and is aptly known as the stone of clarity and good health. It's also referred to as the 'sailors stone' and was often taken aboard ships as it sailors believed it would protect them from disasters at sea.
Bloodstone is a dark green stone, splattered with red blood-like spots, giving it its name. In India the stone is crushed into a powder and used as an aphrodisiac, which removes much of the stone from the market.
Our handcrafted March bracelet includes 9mm Aquamarine cubes and 6-8mm beads, 6mm bloodstone beads and 8-8mm lava beads. It also features a vintage gold coloured charm.
Note: due to the dangling charm on this bracelet, it is not available in childrens sizes. If you would like the bracelet to be made without the charm, please send us an email!
March Birthstone Bracelet - Aquamarine and Bloodstone
Your aromatherapy bracelet is made for use with theraputic grade essential oils (we recommend and love doTERRA). Simply place one or two drops onto your fingers and massage into the Lava Beads. Allow the oil to be absorbed by the Lava before inhaling the beautiful aroma.
The scent will remain on your stone for up to 3 days depending on the oil. Simply layer additional oils to change or add to the scent.
Please be careful to avoid oils coming into contact with other elements of the lava jewellery as they may tarnish over time.
Semi-precious and precious gemstones require a little more TLC than stainless steel or metallic jewellery - please avoid wearing your gemstones whilst cleaning as the chemicals may damage the stones.
Should your bracelet break within 3 months of purchase, we will offer one free restring. The cost of postage to return the item to us is at the expense of the buyer. Oleander Place will return the bracelet to you via regular mail.
Please ensure that you return as many beads as possible as we can only replace a max of 3 gemstone beads. The rest will be made up of lava beads.
