Bring calmness to your life with an aquamarine and diamond ring
An aquamarine and diamond ring is a combination of fire and water creating an amazing balance of color.
The aquamarine which is described as the sailors’ lucky stone derives its name from the Latin ‘aqua‘ (water) and ‘mare‘ (sea) or water of the sea; this is due to its sea water color.
Aquamarines are beryls which have a color range of light blue to dark blue to blue-green.
The most desirable color is a dark blue which is quite rare.
The coloring agent that gives aquamarines their color is Iron.
The best stones come from Brazil and have exotic names such as ‘Santa Maria‘ which is a mine in Brazil.
It produces bright blue stone & ‘Martha Rocha‘ named after a Brazilian beauty queen of the 1950s.
The Brazilian aquamarine has so affected the market that the fine stones from Mozambique in Africa are named Santa-Maria-Africana.
A beautifully crafted aquamarine and diamond ring will melt the heart of any woman.
It can blend with any skin tone or eye color due to its varying shades. Give it a try and see how it blends with your skin color!
Having a mohs’ hardness number of 7.5 – 8 helps a lot as this enables the aquamarine not to scratch easily and thus can be worn daily.
However, aquamarine is brittle & sensitive to pressure so you should try and avoid knocking it on surfaces.
If you work around heavy machinery, in crafts or you happen to be a very animated person, take greater care of your aquamarine and diamond rings while working or wear them after work.
Apparently, folk lore says that wearing an aquamarine promises a happy marriage and is said to bring the woman who wears it joy and wealth into the bargain.
I say we need all the help we can get and if wearing an aqua will make you feel & look more attractive, who am I to stop you?
Aquamarine is one of the top favourite stones of modern jewelery designers.
Due to its divers colors, it has been cut from the regular step or emerald cut to scissors-cut with rectangular shapes.
Clear stones can be shaped in to a myriad of designer cuts to show of the aquas color and brilliance turning it in to a work of art.
Stones with inclusions are also cut en cabochon where the stone is mostly shaped as an oval dome and polished or used as beads.
I see no reason why every woman shouldn’t own an aquamarine and diamond ring…happy shopping!
