BUYING AN AQUAMARINE ENGAGEMENT RING





The lovely, soft blue aquamarine is becoming one of the most sought-after gems for engagement rings. In ancient times, the aquamarine was prized for its ability to ensure a safe journey and a peaceful sleep, both symbols of a loving relationship. Woman are particularly attracted to the sweet, icy blue color of the finest aquamarines, and are finding them a preferable alternative to the ubiquitous diamond. An aquamarine engagement ring suggests the creativity and sensitivity of the giver, certainly qualities you’ll want to express to the woman you love most.





Picking The Right Gem
When selecting an aquamarine engagement ring, the first thing the buyer will usually consider is the type of precious metal the ring itself will be made of. Recent trends have steered many buyers toward platinum. This is a beautiful choice and, in fact, is one of the most popular precious metals for engagement rings these days. A similar looking precious metal is silver, although it is slightly less valuable than platinum and, according to some experts, silver is less durable than platinum. Other nice choices for the ring portion of an aquamarine engagement ring are gold and white gold.

Next, the aquamarine engagement ring shopper should consider the cut of the stone or stones. Some popular choices are a round, oval, octagon, princess or a square cut stone. Additionally, the aquamarine engagement ring buyer should determine the setting of the stone and if more than one stone will be featured. Also, whether any other types of stones will be incorporated into the aquamarine engagement ring should be decided. Thinking about all of these deciding factors and basing a decision on the lucky recipient will result in the perfect aquamarine engagement ring for your lovely bride-to-be.






What Should You Pay?
The general rule of thumb when buying an engagement ring is that the buyer should plan on spending around two months’ salary on the purchase. So for someone who makes approximately $60,000 a year that would amount to about a $10,000 budget. This two month rule of thumb really is an arbitrary idea and one conceived of by jewelers themselves. It is a good idea to come up with a budget, but it makes more sense for the buyer to really determine what that amount should be.

Shop around and do your research; popping the question is usually a well-thought out affair – the ring you use to pop the question warrants as much thought too!
