Meaning + Symbolism
The horseshoe motif symbolizes a combination of luck, protection, religion and magic. Ancient Celtics used the symbol to ward off mischievous fairies. An English blacksmith later known as Saint Dunstan (909 – 988 AD) is said to have nailed a horseshoe to a horse - who was actually the Devil in disguise - and it caused the Devil great pain. Dunstan agreed to remove the shoe and release the Devil only after he promised never again to enter a house displaying a horseshoe.
Aquamarines are said to have fallen from the treasure chest of a mermaid. The sea blue crystal represents transformation and rebirth. Aquamarine is the March birthstone and the 19th wedding anniversary gemstone.
