According to legend, aquamarine originated in the treasure chest of mermaids, and has since ancient times, been regarded as “the sailor’s lucky stone.”
Now, we didn’t have to coerce any mermaids to part with their cherished gemstone, but we did manage to gather a treasure trove of this blue beauty so we could share its charms with the world.
A legend among luxury jewelers, aquamarine shines with all the colors of the ocean. Its very name is derived from the Latin worlds “water of the sea.” Aquamarine has excellent clarity and transparency. In fact, a member of the beryl family, aquamarine is a sister of the rich green emerald.
You can easily find one carat aquamarine pendants for over $5,000 at Fifth Avenue jewelers. We think that’s going a little overboard. Not upcharging for a big name lets us give you a breathtakingly-beautiful piece of jewelry for a price that won’t take your breath away. We think the mermaids would approve.
