Platinum Aquamarine Engagement Rings
Couples are stepping away from the masses and expressing their love with rings that deviate from the tradition of a diamonds set in gold. Other treasures, like platinum aquamarine engagement rings are being given a new and well deserved honor. Aquamarines, long ago believed to be a treasured belonging of the mermaids, are believed to possess many emotional and physical healing properties and bring joy to a marriage. Many designers enjoy working with this stone because of its brilliant clarity and exceptional hardness. With colors that range from the icy sparkle of a bright winter sky to the rich warm blues found deep in a tropical sea, the aquamarine is fast becoming a favorite.
Of course the perfect setting to showcase a brilliant stone should be crafted of platinum, the most prized of all precious metals. More rare than gold, platinum provides a strength and permanence that is unsurpassed. Prongs of platinum are less likely to break than ones of gold. What's more, white gold begins as yellow gold, and will always have the faintest hint of yellow. Platinum is naturally a white metal and has a pure brilliance that cannot be copied. Any couple looking to make a visible statement of their love that encompasses good fortune, good health, happiness, and exquisite taste and standards should consider the marvel of an aquamarine set in platinum.
