The Mermaid's Tale
The Mermaid's Treasure Necklace boasts 13 total carats of aquamarine
There are certain legends we’re certain are made up. Take for example, the story of aquamarine. Sailors believed that beautiful blue-green aquamarine gemstones had fallen from a mermaid’s treasure chest and washed ashore. The ship’s crew would take these stunning stones on voyages, believing aquamarine to calm the waves and protect against maritime danger.
But here’s how we know this is nonsense: If you were a mermaid, and you possessed a precious aquamarine gemstone, would you be careless enough to lose track of it? Would you let some superstitious sailor have it instead? Of course you wouldn’t. No intelligent woman is letting go of aquamarine that easy.
We think you’ll feel the same about the Mermaid’s Treasure Necklace. Made with five stones of beguiling blue-green aquamarine, including one large central stone that both gets and deserves all the attention. Strung from a historic-looking, antiqued-finished sterling silver chain with a stylish O-ring closure, the Mermaid’s Treasure is a full 13 carats of alluring aquamarine— not an item you’d misplace easily.

Beautiful necklace. Not as bright a blue as it appears in the picture, but gorgeous nonetheless. It is closer to 18” than 16”, which is better for me. I was afraid it would be too tight around my neck, but it isn’t.
