What is the symbolism of aquamarine?
Aquamarine is believed to promote tranquillity, harmony, and enhance strong personal connections. This makes aquamarine jewellery a beautifully thoughtful gift for someone close to you.
This pale blue gem has always been associated with the ocean; in fact, its name comes from the Latin words for ‘sea water’. There is ancient mythology attached to aquamarine, and it was often believed to protect sailors during long ocean voyages.
How do I style aquamarine jewellery?
With its beautiful, light aqua colour, aquamarine is a versatile gemstone for styling. Paired with white gold to let its blue colour shine, it can be layered with other white gold pieces. For example, style a pair of aquamarine and white gold earrings with a white gold necklace and bracelet. If you’d like to add more colour to your look, wear a few matching aquamarine pieces.
Aquamarine also complements diamonds beautifully, so try styling an aquamarine ring, pendant, or pair of earrings with your diamond jewellery for a pop of colour.
Is aquamarine a good stone for engagement rings?
Aquamarine is a great choice for a coloured gemstone engagement ring, as it allows you to make a unique statement yet it also has a timeless appearance. While aquamarine is not as hard as diamonds or sapphires, it has a hardness rating of 7.5 – 8 on the Mohs scale, so it is quite durable for wearing as an engagement ring. It’s important to care for your coloured gemstones and avoid them being scratched or coming into contact with abrasive materials, so that they keep their beautiful sparkle.
