Aquamarine and diamond rings are popular for many reasons, one of which being their versatility when it comes to precious metals. The lighter tones of the aquamarines in the diamond rings work very well in yellow gold settings.
Many feel this is because the pale blue and green tones of the aquamarines in the diamond rings blend well with the yellow tones of the gold, creating a cool and subtle colour palette. On the other hand, aquamarine and diamond rings work well in white gold or platinum settings just as easily. Many people prefer the cohesiveness of the lighter aquamarines in the diamond rings against the white metal backdrops.
The colour of an aquamarine tends to vary along the blue-green colour spectrum. The majority of aquamarines are of light blue colour, but the most expensive and coveted aquamarines are dark blue. Aquamarines are often described as a cross between an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.
In 1910, Minas Gerais, the largest aquamarine ever found, was discovered in Brazil. It weighed 243 pounds and contained over 200,000 carats.
The name aquamarine is derived from the Latin word aqua standing for water and marine meaning the sea. Aquamarines bluey green hue certainly evokes the colour of sparkling crystalline waters.
In addition to serving as the birthstone for March, aquamarine is considered the official gemstone for the 19th wedding anniversary. It is said to strengthen the mind and bring out courage, and is also reputed to help couples overcome their differences and work toward a lasting, loving relationship.
With such diverse historical meanings and the range of beautiful colours it can be found in, the aquamarine is a stone that has stood the test of time and allows for the modern day fashionista to add a flash of blue to any outfit.
