The word aquamarine comes from the meaning “two handfuls of seawater” and when you look into this gorgeous aquamarine you will easily see where this term came from.
Here we have a very elegant antique aquamarine and diamond cluster ring dating from the early Edwardian period of the start of the 1900’s.
Exquisite on design, sitting proudly in the centre is a 2.15 carat oval faceted aquamarine that has the most pure blue colour.
The soft natural colour of this aquamarine sits perfectly on the 18ct yellow gold and is of course highlighted by the sparkle coming from the twelve old European cut diamonds surrounding the aquamarine and a further diamond on each side.
These diamonds total 0.84 carat and the cluster itself measures 12mm wide by 14.7mm.
This ring has just been completely restored including a brand new and quite solid hand made band giving this ring a new lease of life for another 100 years.
We all adore aquamarine as a gemstone and combine it on an antique cluster ring and you have a winning combination.
