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.

Another emerald-cut aquamarine is beautifully set in a cluster with diamond-set shoulders.

There are also three pieces with oval aquamarines - a cluster pendant with diamond-set circular motif above, a large cluster pendant with a diamond bale, and a wonderful Art Deco-inspired solitaire ring with a diamond trefoil to the shoulders.
