This is a rare Aquamarine, direct from the famous Santa Maria mine in Brazil. Santa Maria aquamarines are the finest in the world, and very little material is mined as it is almost depleted. Aquamarine quality is based primarily upon color. The more the saturation, the more the value. This one is AAA - the very best. Aquamarine cannot get darker than this gorgeous gemstone.
This makes a perfect right-hand ring, or an alternate engagement ring!
This is about as perfect an aquamarine as you can get - the color is the perfect Santa Maria aquamarine color - brilliant deeply saturated blue; the clarity is VVS (eye clean); the cut is a fancy cut by an expert lapidary, just perfect, and just gorgeous - a big, beautiful modified oval cut. The best of the best aquamarine gemstones are called "double blue". This one is the rare double blue. Most AAA (best quality) aquamarines will be listed as "Santa Maria", meaning their color is like the famous Santa Maria aquamarine - close, but... no. This is the real thing. If you like aquamarines, you cannot get any better than this one, it's a quality heirloom piece.
We put this beautiful gemstone in one of our signature settings - small .01 carat colorless diamonds on the band and pave diamonds in swirls surrounding the gemstone - for that gorgeous designer look at every angle.
