Light blue, like the refreshing, clear waters of a hidden bay, is the effect of this aquamarine in its fine gold setting. The gemstone in oval antique cut has a weight of about twelve carats and is held by an elegant setting of yellow gold. Aquamarine is a gemstone that is capable of captivating any gemstone lover. Mineralogically, the aquamarine is a variety of the mineral beryl, so a representative of that group of minerals to which also the emerald and heliodor belongs. The most important deposits of the gemstone are found in Madagascar and Brazil, where the most beautiful, so-called Santa Maria aquamarines are mined in the city of Ceará. The pendant dates to the 1950s. A look at the lower side reveals that it was once worn as a ring. In later times it was converted into a pendant. Thanks to its hinged eyelet, the jewellery can also be worn on a pearl necklace or a silk cord. It is a refreshing sight on hot summer days - and a nice reminder of fun vacations by the sea.

Desperate sailors are said to have once thrown aquamarines overboard their ships during wild storms to soothe the fury of the sea god.
