8 Gorgeous Aquamarine Engagement Rings


There’s something about aquamarines. Possibly because they marry the classic color blue with some of the lovely transparency of diamonds, or because their breathtaking beauty comes at a more gentle price than that of diamonds or sapphires, vintage aquamarine engagement rings have been especially sought after lately.

Aquamarine means “water of the sea,” a name which originated in the early 1700s, around the start of the Georgian era. These gorgeous gems are part of the beryl family of minerals, which also includes emeralds. Aquamarines come in colors ranging from the palest blue to dark blue-greens.

The aquamarines in vintage engagement rings are often emerald or oval cut, and can be found in a wide range of settings. Not linked with a specific decade or design era, you can find vintage aquamarine engagement rings from every design period from the Victorian era straight through to recent decades.

From the light blue of the sky to the deep blue of the sea, aquamarines shine over an extraordinarily beautiful range of mainly light blue colors. Very nice and beautiful engagement rings from a beautiful stone. All designs are so nice and clean designs
