Aquamarine engagement rings are making a big comeback and becoming a hot new engagement ring trend for young couples planning to get married. This beautiful blue stone combines the classic allure of a semi-precious stone with a unique modern look and feel. Aquamarine engagement rings can be custom-styled to include other precious and semi-precious stones, creating unforgettable works of jewellery art. An aquamarine engagement ring, modern or antique, definitely has the wow-factor.
The beautiful blue aquamarine, which is the birthstone for March and is found in Brazil and parts of Africa, has a long history of being used in the making of fine jewelery and has always been popular in the crafting of antique engagement, anniversary and bridal gifts. The gentle, yet sparkling color of this lovely stone evokes soothing images of sea and sky, of tropical beaches and distant horizons. In fact, it is often called the Gem of the Sea. Although always a pastel blue, the darker the aquamarine, the more valuable it is. Aquamarine has the fragile delicacy and clarity of handspun glass.

It is one of the most popular semi-precious stones, particularly with young women who are looking for something different that isn’t too costly. It is also used by alternative healers and therapists as a crystal to bring its wearer healing, luck and love, and is believed to ensure a long-lasting marriage. Aquamarines are often used together with other semi-precious stones, like citrines, amethysts, topaz, moonstones, garnets and the rarely found tourmalines, to create colourful rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces in different styles and combinations.
Aquamarines can be cut to the required size or shape and are stunning when beaded and twinned with white gold or platinum. The simplicity of the traditional princess cut shows off the color of this sparkling jewel to its best advantage. Fashion designers use aquamarine beads on shoes, bags or as shoulder straps on designer evening gowns. When you’re looking to buy something just a bit different that still remains classically stylish and suitable for an important occasion like an engagement, you can’t go wrong with an aquamarine engagement ring.
