Aquamarine Appreciation

Summer is here with heat to beat. It’s a good thing we’ve stocked up on refreshingly cool aquamarine blues! 

Each stone is cut to have a deep pavilion that lets you fall into its perfectly blue pigmentation that echoes the palette of the summer sky.

We love the versatility of this gemstone and how it energizes each mounting where it resides.  

This newly acquired Angela Cummings foliate ring explodes radiance as the yellow of the mounting brings out the intoxicating color of its bezel set center.

Aquamarine is durable and often found naturally in large eye-clean crystals allowing it to be cut in a myriad of ways to bring boundless creativity to design. 

A great example is our chic retro Cartier brooch designed as a cluster of grapes - each morsel is a hexagonal cut aqua that brings life and dimension to the piece as it simultaneously symbolizes prosperity.

Classically, aquamarine is fashioned as a stepped rectangular cut or emerald cut, with each stepped facet lowering us deeper into an azure paradise.

These geometrically savvy works are bold statements that embody refined prestige.
