Aquamarine, the birthstone of March, has a rich colour and has long been a symbol of youth, health and hope. It's mesmerizing colour ranges from pale to deep blue and is reminiscent of the sea. It is said to bring a calming, soothing, and cleansing nature – with its usual pale blue colour we can see why – as well as this, it inspires truth, trust and letting go.
The name Aquamarine comes from the Latin aqua marinus, meaning 'water of the sea' and refers to its sparkling ocean-like colour, and the stones themselves were thought to protect seafarers. The Ancient Romans believed that the god Neptune found the first Aquamarine gemstone that had washed up on the shore after it had fell out of a sirens jewellery box!
A perfect birthstone for March, the aquamarine creates a beautiful accent to spring and summer wardrobes. Click here to browse our beautiful Aquamarine collection!
Opal the stunning stone for October
As the season’s change, it seems fitting that ‘opal’ translates in Greek terms to ‘see a change of colour’, the perfect description for both a gemstone that radiates a rainbow of colours and the colourful change in seasons.
Opal's are our beautiful stone of the month; representing the birth stone for October. The name 'Opal' derives from from the Latin “Opalus” and the Greek “Opallios”, meaning 'precious stone'. This milky, multicoloured and eyecatching stone acts as a traditional and timeless stone, worn by women and men of all ages.
One thing you probably didn't know about this stone is that the finest family of Opal contains every colour of the rainbow. This stone also represents hope and innocence, which are connotations of the pure milky white base colour the stones are usually made up of. The term 'Opal' also depicts 'changing of colour', making it a really unique stone to possess because no two are the same!
Did you know that it was Queen Victoria’s favourite gemstone was Opal! She had sapphires, rubies and diamonds from all over the British empire but fell in love with the intoxicating colours of Opals, and we hope you do too!

Jewellery is a wonderful way of keeping memories alive…
2020 and 2021 will be years we will all remember, for various reasons. For some bringing families together but for others losing family members. Many of our customers regularly say – ‘this piece of jewellery is sentimental’. They remember their Grandparents or parents wearing a piece of jewellery and fond memories come flooding back – memories of licking a bowl out after making cakes, or remembering your mum receiving that eternity ring for her birthday, your Grandfather reading stories to you as a child and seeing the ring he was wearing as he turned the pages as you ‘Went on a Bear Hunt’.
These items are passed down from generation to generation for them to enjoy.
We at Segal’s can restore jewellery, make it look as it did when it was first given. Did your Grandparent or Parent give you a ring that you wish to wear?
We can also provide those one off items for you to pass on to your children or grand-children. A gold locket to hold the photo that they love and keep it close to their heart, a signet ring to engrave with initials for your children to cherish forever!
Many of our vintage pieces are one of a kind, so buy vintage when you see it as you might never find the same thing again.
Segal’s Jewellers have been in business for over 100 years and we are here for you now.
