antique aquamarine jewellery

Throughout much of recorded history, the aquamarine has been believed to serve a symbolic purpose and bring luck to the wearer.


During the Roman era, these gemstones were often embellished with a carved image of a frog, creating a talisman that was thought to reconcile enemies and make them friends. In addition to this, the Romans also believed that aquamarines would "absorb the atmosphere of young love." Because of this, the gemstone was considered the most appropriate gift to give to a bride on the morning after her wedding, and today the aquamarine is considered the official present for a 19th wedding anniversary. There was another Roman belief that aquamarines would help to cure illnesses; particularly of the stomach, liver, jaw, and throat.


For the Romans and the Greeks, the aquamarine was believed to be the sailor''s gem, presumably because of the stone''s resemblance of the ocean. Having an aquamarine on the ship was thought to ensure a safe passage through rough and choppy tides.


The pale blue stone was later believed to bring luck to soldiers. During the medieval period, it was thought that wearing an aquamarine into battle would render a soldier invincible. It was also believed, within medieval society, that this gemstone would reawaken the love of married couples.


After the Victorian era, in the late 19th century, Aquamarines encountered perhaps their biggest surge in popularity. During this time, Art Nouveau styles rebelled against the strictness of the Victorian era and jewellery makers took inspiration from nature and animals creating swirling, playful designs often incorporating gold. The aquamarine was also a jewel of choice when it came to the Art Deco era during the early 20th century. The elongated, emerald cut gems perfectly suited the sleek geometric jewellery styles that this artistic movement was so famous for.


Throughout history, aquamarine jewellery has been popular due to the beautiful, colourful variety of tones these gemstones can come in. During the 19th century, light green aquamarines were most frequently used in jewellery making. However, today we most often encounter sky blue aquamarine jewellery.


During the Art Deco and Art Nouveau periods, aquamarine was particularly popular in jewellery making. Jewellers specialising in Art Nouveau Jewellery style during the late 1800s and the early 1900s rebelled against the strict rules of jewellery making in the Victorian era, and chose to craft pieces inspired by nature and animals, often featuring the gorgeous aquamarine.
