SOLD - Sterling Silver and Aquamarine necklace

Aquamarine

SOLD

Aquamarine is one of my favourites as it is my birthstone (for March).  The colour has a beautiful fresh look that works so well with silver.  This 16″ necklace has a central section of facetted rondelle aquamarine beads with two sterling silver tube beads with a lovely scroll pattern and two rondelle beads.  Leading to this central section are long sterling silver tube beads creating a solid chain effect.

The name Aquamarine comes from the Latin “aqua marina” which means “water of the sea”.  Not surprising since the colour is a beautiful turquoise blue colour.  It is also known as the blue Emerald as it is from the same Beryl family as emeralds.
