What should you do with your Aquamarine?
One of our favourite gemstones making a regular appearance in our jewellery is Aquamarine. The beautiful blue birthstone of March is one of our most requested gemstones for bespoke jewellery commissions. Interestingly, some of our bespoke work involves working with existing gemstones. Some Aquamarines are already set into jewellery. Other examples lie unset—waiting for the perfect jewellery design to be realised.

Why would someone have a loose Aquamarine?
This is a very good question. Why would you happen to have a loose Aquamarine. Some clients purchase loose diamonds whilst on their travels to exotic regions of the World. As a result, there are many examples lying dormant in drawers and jewellery boxes. As part of our work, we make design suggestions, many of which derive from previous work. For example, our bespoke design gallery gives some much-needed inspiration for visitors to our website.
Sourcing the perfect Aquamarine
For those clients who do not already have an Aquamarine, we source most sizes, shapes and shades to suit our client’s preference and budget. Aquamarines come in most shapes and sizes. Paler stones tend to be less expensive. Deeper blues are more valuable—especially in large sizes.
Best precious metal choices for setting an Aquamarine
A beautiful Aquamarine is worthy of 950 Platinum or Gold. Gold comes in 3 colour choices. We typically work with 18ct White Gold, 18ct Yellow Gold and 18ct Rose Gold. Furthermore, we favour Fairtrade Gold which gives 100% ethical standards.
Aquamarine – the perfect gemstone for a statement ring
For anyone looking for impact, Aquamarine makes a perfect gemstone for a statement or dress ring. The equivalent diamond size blows most budgets completely out of the water. Aquamarine tends to provide a more affordable option. As a result you get more gemstone for your money.
This 9 carat sized Aquamarine was set into 18ct White Gold to form a statement ring. One single Aquamarine in a very simple four claw setting.
Simple solitaire ring designs suitable for Aquamarines
When it comes to Aquamarines, most diamond settings suit this gemstone choice. We recommend keeping to a simple design unless you prefer to surround your Aquamarine with a halo of diamonds. Simple four claw settings work well as shown by our Lila solitaire engagement ring shown here modelled in 950 Platinum with a round Aquamarine.
