Aquamarine literally means “water of the sea” and this is the perfect name for this gemstone, with its transparency and subtle mix of greens and blues. Most aquamarines are set in white gold or platinum because the cooler tones of the metal complement the relatively cool tones of the stone itself. Aquamarines range in color from very light to moderately intense, and while generally the more intense the color the rarer and more expensive the stone, many prefer lighter tones.

About Aquamarine Rings For Women
Aquamarine is a type of beryl, in the same gem family as emeralds. During the 1940s, aquamarine rings were especially popular because the pale color and elongated lines went so well in Art Deco settings. Aquamarines, unlike many other gemstones, are fairly common in large sizes, which also made them ideal for the big, showy jewelry of the period. However, with their beautiful blue-green color, they have always been popular and their popularity continues today.
