  • This oval of aquamarine seems to glow with its depth and colour.  It is like looking into a pool of aqua coloured water.  The aquamarine cabochon is set in sterling silver and made in Jaipur, India, where so many fine craftsmen work in jewellery. It is 1 inch long (2.5 cm) and it its widest it is ¾ of an inch (2 cm) across, with a depth of 13 mm.

  • Aquamarine is the birthstone of March.

  • The gemstone aquamarine is a blue/green member of the Beryl family (while emerald is a green member). Its name comes from the Latin word aqua, meaning water of the sea, as the crystal stone resembles the sparkling colour of water in the Mediterranean.

  • This gemstone is mined mainly in Brazil, but can also be found in Nigeria, Madagascar, Pakistan and Mozambique.

  • The pendant hangs on a necklace of natural aquamarine beads (11 mm) and discs (8.5 mm) interspersed with carved natural celadon green jasper panels, created to look like basket-weave.  The panels are 1½ inches long (4 cm) by ¾ of an inch (2 cm) wide, and 8mm deep.

  • I have used a silver toggle clasp.  Toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.

  • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.

  • The necklace is 19 inches long (48 cm) with a pendant drop of 1 inch (2.5 cm)
