Aquamarine is a pale blue color and is strongly associated with water. Water can be many things however; the kind of water that aquamarine represents is clean, peaceful and refreshing, like a mountain lake or a pristine tropical beach. Aquamarine represents letting go of whatever weighs you down and embracing the beauty of the present moment.
Imagine a flowing stream of water washing away your past hurts. That is available to you if you let yourself feel everything you need to feel and then let it go. An Aquamarine engagement ring can signify your willingness to release what is old and no longer serves you, and embrace starting a new life with your beloved.
Aquamarine is associated with the throat chakra, which is the center of our ability to communicate and express ourselves. If you want support in your marriage for clearly communicating with your partner and speaking from the heart, an Aquamarine engagement ring might be right for you.
Peace and Serenity
Aquamarine is a cooling stone, transforming anger to clarity and wisdom. If you tend to run hot, or just enjoy the feeling of serenity and inner peace, Aquamarine is a perfect stone for your engagement ring.
Is aquamarine durable enough for engagement rings?
Aquamarine is a blue variety of beryl (green beryl is called emerald, and pink beryl is called morganite). Beryl is a very hard gemstone (about 7.5-8 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness), but not as hard as ruby, sapphire, or diamond. It can still make a perfect engagement ring however, but look for a stone with high clarity (low inclusions), a setting with 4-6 prongs, and a platinum or 18k gold band.
