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.
