Vintage English Aquamarine Ring in 18k White Gold Setting

I’ve always found stones with blue hues to be rather calming. Aquamarines are the color of the water on a sunny day, without a cloud in sight. The name is Latin for, “water of the sea”, as the most revered aquamarines were a natural bluish-green shade. They were first documented around 480 BC and symbolized eternal youth and happiness. I can tell you that this vintage stunner makes me indubitably happy! So, our ancestors were certainly onto something.

This beautiful aquamarine ring was handcrafted in 18 karat white gold. It was made in Birmingham, England in 1972, and is a clear sign of the Retro times. The aquamarine sits at the center of a four-prong high-mount setting, with geometric shoulders on a size 5.75-85 US band. The rectangular step-cut stone measures 9.8 x 7.8 x 5 mm and weighs approximately 2.62 carats. The ring face measures 11 x 8.5 x 9 mm off the finger, and the band width is 2.3 mm. This vintage ring has been fully hallmarked. It bears the crown mark for England, the gold purity mark, “18”, the origin mark for Birmingham, and the date letter, “X”. The maker’s mark reads, “S&Co”.

It looks to me like this is your next favorite cocktail ring. It’s not too big, and not too small, just the right size to make a beautiful statement.
