The appeal of aquamarine is nothing new. For literally thousands of years this semiprecious gemstone has been admired by cultures around the world. And, it’s not hard to understand why. Pieces that feature this stone, such as aquamarine rings, provide a splash of color perfect for a gray winter day.
The color of aquamarine is simultaneously invigorating and calming as it sparkles like the calmest waters. This gem’s name testifies to its appealing appearance: “aqua” means “water and “mare” means “sea.” Like a sparkling bay, this stone is soothing and invigorating.
The cool, fresh beauty of aquamarine gives this gem perpetual class; thus, even sizeable aquamarines won’t overwhelm. For instance, the 2.40 carat aquamarine in the 1/3 Carat Diamond and Aquamarine Ring in 14K White Gold sparkles with soft yet brilliant elegance. This cushion-cut gem is surrounded by a frame of small round diamonds and set on a sparkling, diamond-laden band.
In addition to serving as symbols of your good taste, aquamarine rings can serve as stunning representations of love. Aquamarine engagement rings may not be traditional choices when popping the question, but they’re unique and beautiful ways to express a love that’s always fresh.
For instance, by presenting the Princess Cut Aquamarine and Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold when you get down on one knee, you’ll leave no questions as to your true feelings. This stunner features a princess-cut, two carat aquamarine, accented by a total of eight round, channel-set diamonds. An engraved design on the sides of the 14K white gold band is both a nod to the past and perfectly fitting for the present. The combination of stones in this ring is like the sunlight glimmering off of the water or the calming contrast of a winter sky above a freshly fallen snow.
The vibrant look of aquamarine allows it to give a fresh take to vintage-style rings. For instance, the Antique-Style Aquamarine Wedding Ring Set places a 4.5mm round aquamarine in the midst of an antique engagement ring rich with feminine grace. Its unique motif, crafted in 14K white gold, combines expertly-carved swirls and cutouts to form an intricate and elegant design. A coordinating band with a similar pattern curves in harmony to complete this set. Or, if you prefer, you can purchase just the engagement ring as the Enchanted Aquamarine Ring in 14K White Gold.
If you’re looking for an extra touch of refreshing color and sparkle, try pairing any of these rings with a pair of Aquamarine Stud Earrings in 14K White Gold. Available in four sizes and in your choice of white gold or yellow gold basket settings, these simply designed earrings coordinate nicely with any aquamarine jewelry. Of course, they’re also lovely on their own.
As the birthstone for March, aquamarine looks ahead to spring, a time when the earth begins to thaw and life is renewed. Why not try one of these refreshing rings to add a splash of color and hope to your winter?
