Not all aquamarine stones come in the same shade of blue. Some of them are pastel blue, while others can be more vivid. Whether it’s a gentle blue or a strong dark one, it’s crucial to decide which stone you like. 

If you’re into sparkly stones, look for excellent cut stones. When it comes to metals, aquamarine goes well with everything. A golden or pink gold ring will make the stone look cooler while providing the right balance. However, platinum (or white gold) works best if you want to enhance the blue tones. 

Aquamarine carat size won’t play a significant role, as aquamarine is usually unearthed as larger raw pieces. Because you can find them in abundance, you can purchase big ring-size pieces for a reasonable price. 

Bear in mind that the darker (highly saturated) aquamarine stones are pricier than the lighter stones, as light ones are usually in high demand, but thankfully this doesn’t affect the price too much. 

As far as the cut is concerned, this stone looks staggering in every shape, and it ultimately comes down to your personal preference. Aquamarine will always look amazing whether you like an oval, round, emerald, or heart-shaped stone. Depending on your style, you can even use several aquamarine stones or arrange a particular cut.
