Aquamarine: Into the Blue

There is something so calming about the limpid colours of a fine aquamarine. Its name comes from the Latin for seawater and it was said to calm waves and keep sailors safe at sea. Like Emerald, it is a member of the Beryl family of gemstones, and is usually very clear, with a sparkling lustre.

The pear-shaped aquamarine and diamond cluster pendant is a real showpiece, with a large 7.07cts aquamarine of Santa Maria intensity. The large cluster ring has a beautiful oval 5.33cts stone to the centre.

The emerald-cut aquamarine solitaire ring in platinum is in a time-honoured Art Deco style. Aquamarines were very popular in the 1920s and 1930s, and often showcased between baguette diamonds, as seen here.

Finally, four smaller pieces of aquamarine and diamond cluster jewellery, all in 18ct white gold: a pair of Edwardian-inspired oval cluster earrings, with millegraining to the edges of the settings (an Edwardian innovation), a cushion shaped aquamarine pendant with a diamond-set bale, and a round faceted aquamarine and diamond cluster ring and matching pendant.
