An elegant and crisp gemstone, Aquamarine is a precious gem that exudes sophistication. To me this is a ‘grown up’ gemstone that looks stunning when set next to diamonds in white gold or platinum. I rarely use Aquamarine in my everyday collections, but love the opportunity to work with it when designing bespoke pieces.
Country of origin
