$ 1,070.00

Tears come from the heart and not from the brain, and this tear(pear) shaped light blue African aquamarine is no exception. The heart of the ever-giving mother earth has given birth to this stone. The heart is also used by our masterful lapidarists to provide this stone with the best cut possible, a flower cut pavilion allowing light to reflect and refract in unimaginable ways. The stone has a carat weight of 1.35 and has the dimensions of 5.90mm by 10.75mm. The pavilion depth of 4.33mm makes this the ideal stone for an engagement ring or a simple pendant. This stone is also eye clean, has not undergone any treatments and is completely natural in its entirety. The ethical responsibilities that we have can be guaranteed in the stone as it was mined from our own mines by our miners.

If this stone doesn’t speak to you… well, you’d be having to continue shedding tears.

The Aquamarine

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.

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.
