Clayfield Jewellery has a wide range of Aquamarine Stone Jewellery
The beautiful shades of aquamarine stones have captivated people for thousands of years. This beautiful pale blue-green stone is said by ancient lore to be the treasure of the mermaids! Aquamarine is also the birthstone for the month of March.
Aquamarine is found mainly in Brazil, where the largest ever piece was found. It can also be found in Russia, Kenya, Madagascar, and the Midwestern United States.
Aquamarines can come in a range of colours from light blue to deeper greenish-blue. They come in many colours but are different from natural diamonds.
Aquamarine can mix well with any metal, although some metals may enhance the features while some may provide a contrast. White gold can bring out the coolness of a stone and yellow gold gives a warmer tone.
The most common cut for an aquamarine is the emerald type, followed by oval or pear shaped cuts. It is quite a durable stone to wear. Large aquamarine stones, ranging from several carats to more than ten carats are obtainable.
For many, the biggest advantage of opting for an aquamarine engagement ring over a traditional diamond is the price tag; aquamarine is much more affordable, even in larger carat weights.
