March: A Month of Hope, Luck, Love, Rebirth, and a Whole Lot More
BIRTH FLOWER: Daffodil
Charles Dickens describes the month of March perfectly in Great Expectations when he writes, “It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”
March is definitely a month for one thing remains a constant- layering your clothing. The forecast is always calling for sweater weather with a slight chance of tank tops, wear mittens and a beanie in the morning but prepare to strip down in the afternoon. And anything matched with March’s birthstone and birth flower colors- aquamarine and daffodil- seem to complement any kind of outfit in any type of climate.
March’s cerulean blue birthstone, the aquamarine, invokes a calm and peaceful presence while bringing on prosperity, intuition, and luck. Its birth flower counterpart is the bright and shining daffodil symbolizing intense and unparalleled love, hope, and rebirth.
This light and airy, cold and sunny, sassy and sweet spring combination between the aquamarine and cheerful daffodil offers a lovely balance that eases one right into spring.
If you’re looking for March-inspired jewelry to adorn your outfits, some of my favorite necklaces that accent a spring look are the Aqua Chalcedony Charm Necklace, a strikingly simple serene blue piece that can perhaps be paired with the daffodil-tinted Yellow Sapphire Tiny Heart Pendant. A set of Bumblebee Jasper Lule Rings interchanged with the Mexican Turquoise Lule Rings also bring out those bright notes of daffodil and aquamarine. However, any Julia Szendrei jewelry that is handmade, 100 percent personally sourced natural gemstones add a unique style and vividness to your normal routine, no matter what your mood is or what the weather is looking like that day.
And don’t forget that March 17th is also St. Patrick’s Day. Since I don’t want you to get pinched, please consider picking up a youthful-looking Chrysoprase Ceremony Bracelet to wear while you’re out on the town socializing and celebrating your inner Irish spirit.
May this March bring you peace, luck, and prosperity!
Just like the English Romantic poet John Keats believing that daffodils bring forever joy, sailors of the high seas used to believe that drinking water soaked in an aquamarine gem helped cure liver, heart, and stomach diseases (it also gives ode to Neptune, the Greek god who was the protector of the seas).
