Happy Friday, folks! To start your weekend off right, we're featuring five vintage and vintage-inspired aquamarine engagement rings. Aquamarines are a gorgeous gemstone that display a wide array of blue colors. Aquamarines are in the same family as emeralds, the beryl family which means they have a good hardness (7.5 to 8 on the Mohs scale) for everyday wear. Vintage aquamarine engagement rings are a wonderful alternative to a traditional diamond engagement ring, especially since they tend to carry a much lower price tag! Check out some of our favorite vintage and vintage-inspired aquamarine engagement rings below!
