I just LOVE the beautiful & intricate details on your ring. Do you have smaller aqua stones on the shanks as well? Gorgeous! I’ll bet it’s custom made.

Here’s my aqua RHR. I love that it’s such a sturdy setting, and that the stone is protected.

my mom has an antique aquamarine, it was an heirloom stone. it’s super pale blue, and it’s so clear. she’s worn it every day for 30 years, however, and the facets have worn off. but the color is still amazing.

Totally obsessed with my aquamarine. I love the way it changes to different shades of blue and green.

I’m surprised that no one has said anything about the history and folklore behind aquamarines–that’s what made me fall in love with them!
Ancient Roman grooms used to give aquamarines (not necessarily in ring form, but still) to their brides the morning after the wedding. The stone was thought to absorb the atmosphere of young love. That is why they are also traditional 19th anniversary gifts; they are supposed to reawaken those feelings.
Sailors also used them as good luck charms to ensure their safe passage over stormy seas (sound like a marriage to anyone?). Plus, they are said to be a symbol of happiness and everlasting youth.
They may not be as hard as diamonds, but the history behind them is so much more beautiful. Just treat them nice and you should be ok!
