The history of aquamarine rings

The history of aquamarine rings

The Aquamarine has been a popular gemstone for jewelry since ancient times. The name "aquamarine" comes from the Latin words "aqua" meaning water and "marina" meaning sea, which reflects the stone's light blue-green color that resembles the ocean.

During the Renaissance, aquamarine became a popular gemstone for jewelry among the wealthy and aristocratic classes. It was often used in tiaras, necklaces, and rings, and was considered a symbol of status and wealth.

In the 19th and 20th centuries, aquamarine continued to be a popular gemstone for jewelry, especially for engagement rings. Its delicate blue-green color was thought to symbolize love, loyalty, and commitment, and was a popular alternative to diamonds.

Today, aquamarine remains a popular gemstone for jewelry, especially for engagement and cocktail rings. Its timeless beauty and versatility make it a popular choice for a variety of styles, from classic to modern.
