RingGlamm:  Hmm, I have an aquamarine ring but it’s a different color than that (more like a light mint). My grandfather brought it back from a mine in Thailand like 40+ years ago.  If you like that color, may I suggest a blue topaz? Also, are you looking for a lab-created or a natural stone?

I’d be interested in knowing this too. I’m in Aus though but would love to have an Aquamarine ring for my right hand. It’s my husbands birthstone, diamond is mine and since I already have diamonds for ering and wb, I’d love to have a ring representing him. Not sure how many jewellers post overseas though.

RingGlamm:  mazzoffee:  My ring is set in yellow gold with two diamonds on either side. I actually think the more blue-green natural stones are the rarest but I’m not too sure. I don’t know if blue topaz stones are less strong, it’s just that they are easier to find. I’m honestly not too sure where to get stones in AUS as I’m in the US.

Just wanted to say that topaz is marginally harder than aquamarine. Topaz lies somewhere around 8 on the mohr scale, and aquamarine is on 7.5-8. Both are suitable in hardness, so you can’t go wrong. ^^
