They’re beautiful stones.  The only con is down the line (as in many years from now) it will show wear and tear.  My friend has her grandma’s aquamarine, and it’s scuffed up, though still a beautiful blue.  It’s not as durable as sapphire, ruby, moissy, and diamond.  If you’re at all rough on your jewelry, plan on wearing it daily, and want something that’ll hold up for 50+ years, I wouldn’t recommend it.

@MabelleBliss:  Aquamarines are an amazing stone for engagements as they range in color from a dark teal blue to a very pale, almost colorless blue and they represent fidelity. but if you’re at all worried about wear/tear try looking at a topaz ring. i too wanted a aquamarine, i love everything about it, but y fiance ended up proposing to me with a blue topaz/white diamond ring. it’s equally as beutiful and just as special. but the plus side to topaz is that not only does it come in a variety of colors from clear to yelloe to pink to blue, but it is almost nearly as hard as a diamond!

 

hope this helps πŸ™‚

my RHR in an aquamarine. It’s my grandmothers and I wore it at our wedding as my “something blue”

You can sort of see it here:

whoa, sorry that’s so big!

I’ve got one!  I was slightly concerned about the possibility of damage to the stone, but the beauty of the ring won out and I adore it.  Mine is an emerald cut that reflects everything!  It’s so shiny and just lovely.  I’ve gotten a simple light green moissy e-ring to wear when I’m doing something more active that could damage the ring and then just a plain sterling silver band to wear on vacations, so that might be an option for you.

Here is mine: emerald cut with diamond halos.  I knew since I was a teenager I would have an aqua e-ring!  It’s my birthstone and I simply adore it! Everything the stone represents is so “me!”  

With that said, I have a RHR that I wore daily for about 10 yrs until I started to prefer white gold.  It still looks brand new.  When FI and I began shopping for e-rings I talked to a friend who’s been selling jewelry for many years and she assured me it will stand the test of time.  Her primary recommendation was to have the stone set in 10K gold or platinum so that a hard metal will take the impact and there is less of a chance of losing stones. We also talked to high end jewelers and they said the same thing.

If it’s really stressing you out, I do like the idea of a blue topaz if you don’t have sentimental reasons for wanting an aquamarine. 

There are so many amazing diamond alternatives, whatever you decide will be beautiful!  πŸ™‚

Gah I LOVE aquamarines! It’s my birthstone and blue is one of my favorite colors (next to green). I think I will have to get an aquamarine right-hand-ring someday. Thanks for sharing ladies! πŸ™‚

Here’s mine. I’m a March baby and I’m getting married in March so that’s why my FI chose an aquamarine. It’s a 7.5mm x 7.5mm on a size 5.5 finger.

I absolutely love the look of aquamarine! It looks so clean and pretty. I am considering one for my wedding as a rhr…I will just have to start dropping hints to the Fiance! haha

Here’s my ring I just got engaged last month. This is not the best picture, it’s off my phone but I love love my aqua halo. I wanted an aquamarine stone because I love their light blue color and they just glitter. It is hard to keep clean but that’s common with any ring.
