The legendary aquamarine
This clear blue gemstone has been the subject of many legends and myths throughout history. The Romans for instance believed that a piece of aquamarine could turn an enemy into a friend. Aquamarines also played an important role in relationships and they were given to women as the first gift after she married, in order to reinforce love between the couple and ensure the strength and longevity of the relationship. However, in legends, aquamarines are most often associated with the sea. Tradition has it that mermaids hid pieces of aquamarines in treasure chests, offering them to sailors in distress as protection from storms at sea.
The magical colors of aquamarines
In terms of gemology, aquamarines belong to the beryl family, much like the famous green emeralds or the slightly less well known pink morganites. In terms of color, they range from very pale pastel blue to more intense shades and very often they also have undertones of green. The greenish variety of aquamarines used to be more valued in the past but today the opposite is true and jewelers instead seek out intensely colored and pure blue aquamarines. However, even very light aquamarines have their charm. Their transparency makes the elegant sparkle which is inherent in aquamarines stand out.
Give aquamarines as a gift of love
An aquamarine will make a perfect gift for a woman when she gives birth to a child, for a wedding anniversary or simply as a gift of love. It especially suits people born in the sign of Pisces, Gemini, Aquarius or Leo as well as those born in March. Aquamarines have also gained attention as an attractive and original alternative for an engagement ring these days and this is because they tick all the boxes for this, namely that they are appealing, unique and also have a relatively high hardness of 7.5 – 8 on the Mohs scale. The great advantage of aquamarines is that they are relatively freely available in larger sizes and in excellent quality. In fact, they don’t increase in price (per carat) with increasing weight as much as diamonds and are easy to purchase online.
Jewelry with aquamarines
Aquamarine jewelry looks very elegant but at the same time it’s also fresh and youthful. It will shine the most when combined with white gold which will enhance its cooler look. It also really suits being combined with colorless diamonds which then multiply its brilliance. Wear aquamarine earrings, pendants or bracelets as a versatile accessory on any occasion. During the day, the delicate color of aquamarines will stand out while at a party in the evening, its sparkling reflections will dazzle. In short, it’s a gemstone that has many faces and won’t let you down in any situation.
