Aqua Dolphin….

Our month long feature of aquamarine and all the spectacular jewelry finds we shared this month, has come to an end but we wanted to showcase one more awesome piece with aquamarine, this Boodles, dolphin ring in 18K white gold, set with an impressive aquamarine and surrounded by diamonds, paraiba tourmalines and sapphires. 

Fun myth: Since early times, aquamarine has been believed to endow the wearer with foresight, courage, and happiness. It is said to increase intelligence and make one youthful. 

 

Natural Blue….

Marco Bicego hand hammered and engraved 18K yellow gold bracelet and earrings with lunaria aquamarine, this rose cut cushion dark aquamarine was inspired by the delicate shape of the Lunaria flower. 

Fun facts: A deeply saturated blue aquamarine is the most desirable color, but it is very rare in larger specimens. The intensity of color is one of the most important criteria when evaluating colored gemstones, but unlike other gems, aquamarine is not diminished by lesser color intensity; many people actually prefer the more crystal-clear lighter gemstones over the richer, deeper colors.

Blue Ray!

Astley Clarke, 18K yellow gold earrings and cuff with stunning, shades of blue diamonds, from the Rising Sun collection, a ray of blue sunshine! 

Fun fact: Blue Diamonds – colored/coloured diamonds contain impurities or structural defects that cause the coloration. Natural blue diamonds contain the element boron (B) which changes the conductivity of the diamonds.
