Aquamarine

Aquamarine radiates serenity and peace of mind. Its name is derived from the Latin words “aqua” (water) and “mare” (sea) – alluding to how it reflects the beauty of the ocean. In ancient times, aquamarine was believed to be the “treasure of mermaids”, helping them calm high waves, while sailors wore the gemstone as a talisman for safe passage across stormy seas.

Color range

Aquamarine is the blue variant of the mineral beryl. The colorful beryl group contains several other gemstones such as vibrant green emerald, pinkish morganite and golden heliodor. Aquamarine shades range from pale blue to blueish green and deep blue. In general, the more intense the color, the higher the gemstone’s price.

Hand-picked

When it comes to aquamarines, we love to work with semi-transparent cabochons. This cut gives the gem a softness and a mystical quality. On the other hand, facetted aquamarines are as clear as water - they sparkle and shine even in the dimmest light. Ideal for a candle-lit dinner...

Mohs scale of mineral hardness: 7.5 - 8 (diamond = 10)

Solar meets Aquamarine – a Bron favorite

Aquamarine is the ultimate choice for our Solar jewelry. Subtly sophisticated blue-grey aquas in a gorgeous cabochon cut are in perfect harmony with our soft rose gold. 

Origin

Aquamarine forms from hexagonal prismatic crystals that can develop into massive structures. The largest aquamarine ever weighed was an incredible 110 kilos and was found in the province of Minas Gerais, Brazil. This country is the primary source of aquamarine.
