You’ve decided you want an Aquamarine engagement ring. You thought that would be one of the tougher decisions you’d have to make, but now that you’re done, you’re confused about how to find the perfect Aquamarine stone to go along with your ring.

Okay, first of all: Calm Down. Breathe.

We’ve been there too, and we’re here to help. If you’re looking at buying one of our rings, let us tell you that we’ve done all the research that’s necessary (read our Ultimate Guide to Aquamarine Rings), and chosen the best of what an Aquamarine has to offer. All you need to do is visit our shop and figure out which design you like most. Or you could always get in touch with us for a custom design request.

But even if you choose to buy your ring from elsewhere, here’s what you should keep in mind to pick the right stone.

Aquamarine engagement ring

1. The stone should be crystal clear

When an Aquamarine is mined in nature, its form is inherently without visible inclusions. This allows for relatively large stones to be cut and polished, and still have a crystal clear appearance. If it’s not naked eye clear, then it’s most likely not a very good quality stone. So look out for inclusions. You don’t need to have a trained eye for this. Just look at the piece, and see if you can spot any marks on it.

2. The colour has to be pastel blue

We stand by our choice of colour. We’ve seen Aquamarines in different colours, from pale blue to sea blue, and pastel blue hits just the right tone. It’s the way to go for a subtle, understated engagement ring. We’d go so far as to say that it’s the way to go if you want an Aquamarine engagement ring. If you prefer other hues, then there’s an extremely large likelihood that you’ll find a better tone in another stone – maybe a blue or teal sapphire.

3. Size Matters

Aquamarines are typically easily available in larger sizes. Anything that’s 5mm and above should allow you to get the right colour tone and proportions for your ring. Anything smaller than that, and there’s a high chance the colour fades out or isn’t well distributed within the stone.

4. Cut enhances the stone

Examine the stone with your naked eye. Do the facets of the stone align well? Does it look pleasing? Is it symmetrical and balanced? When looked face up, does it look like it’s hollow? These are important questions to determine the cut and finish of the stone. A well cut stone will result in better, more full colour and a lustre that suits an engagement ring.
