So, this isn’t my ering, I purchased it is a backup for vacations, etc. Then decided it was too much for my dainty size 4.25 finger. In that picture it was on my middle finger which is a size 5.5-6. But the aquamarine stone is beautiful : )

Here’s the aquamarine ring my BF bought me. It’s not an engagement ring but I’ve seen girls on other forums who have them as an Engagement Ring. It’s an aqua with white and chocolate diamonds. It’s my birthstone too :).

I have a princess-cut, bezel-set aquamarine engagement ring that I adore. I’ve had it for a little over two years. I wear it daily (have a desk job), but take it off right when I get home. I try to careful with it, but it does have scratches. Also, it gets dirty/murky very easily. But some Dawn, hot water, and a toothbrush brings back the sparkle. 🙂

I think aquamarine might be my favorite stone — but I personally wouldn’t go with anything softer than a 9 on the Mohs scale for a ring that will be worn everyday. It’ll get too scratched up, even if you baby it.

My engagement ring from my first marriage had an aquamarline center stone. I loved it. It was a very ornate, delicate ring so I typically only wore it when we went out or I felt like having it on, I wore just my wedding band more often. I never had any issues with the durability of the stone, though.

I will say that it gets cloudy and dull very easily though. Aquamarines attracts oils and dirt and it has to be cleaned frequently if you want to see sparkle!

I would have 100% gone with aquamarine again if FI’s family had not gifted us a diamond, though. I love the stone and think it is gorgeous.

I was stuck between an aquamarine (also my birthstone) and morganite. So I made my Fiance choose the stone (I chose the setting) that way my ring was still a surprise! He proposed in July, outside – it was sunny – I couldn’t tell which stone he got! He chose morganite (which looks lavender in the sunlight) but I would have been just as happy with the aquamarine!

I’ve had no issues with durability (morganite is the same family as aquamarine) – but I don’t wear it to do dishes, housework, working out, in the shower, etc. It can get dirty – but if you are careful about putting on lotion (wait a few minutes to put on your ring) same with hair products and soap, it really isn’t a problem. I probably clean mine every 3-4 weeks – I soak it in some water and Dawn dish soap and use a children’s toothbrush.

queenoftheclouds:  Amazon : ) I adored it for a while before I finally got it! I just purchased it a couple weeks ago so it should still be on there!

I have an aquamarine e-ring! It does get cloudy after a couple days, but all you have to do is soak it for a few minutes in water and dish soap and it’s good to go. As for hardness, I’m a klutz and I haven’t had any problems with it. I’d take it off for working with horses, definitely, but average day-to-day stuff I wouldn’t worry about.
