Aquamarine is a sister gem to the classical precious green, yellow ('Heliodor') and pink ('Cesian Beryl') emeralds. All three are chemically identical (Be3Al2Si6O18), containing only slight variations of trace elements that account for their different colouration : Chromium (in the case of green emeralds), Manganese (in the case of pink emeralds), or Iron (in the case of both aquamarine and yellow emeralds). The azure version is named 'aquamarine' rather than 'blue emerald' because of its unique colour - a pale sea blue, from the Latin: aqua marina ('water of the sea').

These earrings feature a pair of flawless aquamarine round-cut gems set in quality sterling silver 'back set' bezels. The gems are 100% natural earth-mined aquamarine from Brazil, master cut, unheated and untreated. Each weighs 0.81 carats, measures 6mm x 6mm, and displays 'VVS' clarity* with very good luster. They are a pale ice blue hue and very sparkly, showing plenty of internal demantoid flash and fire in silver and sky blue tones.

The gems are set in premium quality sterling silver 'bezelite' settings. These frame the gem whilst holding it in place with rear-set (hence invisible) pongs. I've selected premium quality European ear hooks for this design : bright silver, hinged and spring loaded 'Leverbacks', the best money can buy.

All up, each earring weighs 0.6 grams and measures 7mm x 24mm from the top of the earhook to the bottom of the bezelite setting.
