The Aquamarine gemstone is a very valuable member of the Beryl mineral family, making the jewels featuring Aquamarine true gifts of nature. Aquamarine jewels are collected and loved because of the incredible colour palate of the gems themselves. The quality and value of Aquamarine gems vary greatly. The incredible blues of Aquamarine range from pale blue to a blue-green to dark blue, with transparent to opaque stones. Blue-hued Aquamarine jewellery is perfect for this season's colour forecast!

Don't be put off, but the middle finger is actually a great spot for the oversized glamour of an Aquamarine cocktail ring. Cocktail rings have one job: to grab attention! Not unlike a single art piece in the centre of a gallery floor, to create curiosity, wonder and the start of real-life conversations! My Aquamarine ring sits safely in the middle finger of my hand. Last winter I found a trick where I twist the stone side of my cocktail ring around (if you have not already guessed, it is this reporter's new favourite ring) when putting on gloves, for more comfort. Spring is here. No twisting required.
Everything done with your hands brings focus and a spotlight to your Aquamarine ring. Whether it is a popular pinky ring, or a more traditional friendship or engagement ring. Any finger is ready and right for the delicate colour of an Aquamarine ring.

Yes, please! That's what you say when someone offers you an Aquamarine bracelet. If you are very fresh, you might query as to whether it is in the tennis bracelet or charm bracelet style. If neither, what style is it? Are the stones a classic pale blue or a dramatic deep dark blue? Transparent or opaque? What country and mine do the stones come from? The Santa Maria mine in Brazil, perhaps? Is the jewel from a trustworthy, yet stylish, online jewellery company like Rocks & Co., perhaps?

Known for its Emerald-cut stones and usually baguette cut side stones, it is the art of steps, and squares, and rectangles with rounded corners. A play of razor-straight lines with sensuous curves. The style was celebrated through interiors, exteriors, cars, fashion and more.
