African Aquamarine – Light Blue – Fancy – 1.75 Carats

$ 1,260.00

This icy blue aquamarine is neither blue nor colourless, but rather somewhere in between. The loupe clean clarity and unique cut allow this stone to be both vibrant and desirable. And it is to the credit of none other than our expert lapidarists who fashion the stone in this manner which preserves the carat weight to 1.75 carats and the dimensions of 8.51mm by 7.32mm and a pavilion depth of 5.95mm. The stone was ethically mined from our mines in the African continent and after that travelled to Sri Lanka, where it was inspected and fashioned.

The slight tinge of blue reflects the charming personality of its wearer. The mightiest of colours is maybe no colour at all.

The Aquamarine

THE NAME: SEA WATER
The Gem of the Sea; the alluring aquamarine is a stunning gemstone from the beryl(Be3Al2Si6O18) family, with an ancient lineage. Also, the name of this sparkling wonder is of Latin origin with, the Latin words for seawater, “mare aquam” directly translating into the seawater coloured aquamarine. The birthstone of March is also popular all around the world, with many famous pieces of jewellery adorning this beautiful aqua-coloured stone.

FAMOUS AQUAMARINE JEWELLERY
Brazilian Aquamarine Parure in the British Crown Jewels
The “Brazilian Aquamarine Parure in the British Crown Jewels” owned by Queen Elizabeth the Second is one example of marvellous pieces of jewellery containing alluring aquamarines. The jewellers at Mappin & Webb in Rio de Janeiro made these stunning pieces of jewellery. Afterwards, the President and People of Brazil presented them to Her Majesty for her coronation. Also, the original set is a stunning necklace and matching pendant earrings. Both the pieces have multiple rectangular pieces of Brazilian aquamarine set in diamond and platinum.

The Aquamarine bracelet and pendant necklace came a few years afterwards due to the discovery of more matching Brazilian Aquamarines. Then, Her Majesty decided for a tiara made of similar aquamarine gemstones to accompany her already stunning set. This time it was Royal Court Jeweller, Garrard who was responsible for the splendid headwear. Additionally, the complete set has seen the light of day on multiple occasions, and Her Majesty The Queen thoroughly enjoys their presence.
