I wanted to create an adjustable ring and found these 2 beautiful Aquamarines. The result is a Sterling Silver ring carefully crafted around the oval-shaped Aquas. To emphasize the stunning blue I gold plated the silver bezel.
The Aquamarine cabochons measure 10 x 8 mm and the ring size US 9, but easy adjustable.
This piece is handmade and comes in a beautiful gift box.
Mohs scale hardness: 7.5 – 8
The name Aquamarine comes from the Latin “aqua marinus,” meaning “water of the sea,” and refers to it’s sparkling ocean-like colour. The pale blue, transparent crystal is a member of the Beryl family.
Aquamarine is calming, soothing, and cleansing, and inspires truth, trust and letting go. In ancient lore, Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids, and was used by sailors as a talisman of good luck, fearlessness and protection. It was also considered a stone of eternal youth and happiness.
Aquamarine is the birthstone of March.
