There is a definite color distinction between "old" aqua stones and newer ones (all stones are old, geologically speaking). This ring has that more saturated blue color that newer jewelry often lacks.
It is a cushion cut old stone (13mm N to S and 10 mm across) with great sparkle and impact.
This ring has roughly 30 points of round diamonds surrounding the aquamarine stone all set in gold. It is a stunning ring because if it's size, color and sparkle. We especially like the even preciseness of the diamond surround work.
This ring has what is known as "spread" which is a shallower stone that has more girth giving the stone the appearance of being larger in carat size - which is always a great value. It is currently a size 7 1/2.
This is a very pretty and feminine ring easily worn every day. This ring is a great piece of jewelry for the little black cocktail dress or jeans and a t-shirt.
