When Pantone named Serenity (a crystalline blue) and Rose Quartz the colors of 2016 we weren’t surprised, since we’ve noticed that both aquamarines and rose gold settings have become increasingly sought after by jewelry lovers.
But we’ve been happily surprised to see a growing number of couples choose to pair these two colors in engagement rings! The color combination of aquamarine and rose gold engagement rings is alluringly distinctive, and we think that this trend will definitely stand the test of time.
Aquamarines are beloved for combining a beautiful shade of blue with exceptional clarity. Their name means “water of the sea” and aquamarines are part of the beryl family of minerals, which makes them cousins of emeralds.
Other couples who love light blue hues are choosing sapphire engagement rings in shades of light teal and placing them in rose gold settings. Rose gold has a feminine warmth that provides a lovely counterpoint to a blue gemstone.
