Huge 29 carat aquamarine pendant

Aquamarine comes in a variety of  colors hues ranging from a lightly green tinged aqua to a crisp, powder blue.  The colors of aquamarine pick up sky and water tones beautifully, and are favored in lighter, airier designs. Most aquamarines are cut in an emerald shape and occasionally checkerboard more often than they are brilliant. This is to show off aquamarine’s beautiful clarity but also to enhance their color.

As far as durability, aquamarines are an impressive 7.5 on the Mohs scale, making them pretty tough.
