About Baguette Cut

In French, baguette means "rod". It also refers to a long loaf of crusty bread.

In the jewelry realm, however, the baguette signifies classic, regal beauty. Elongated in length, this cut features non-beveled corners and usually two rows of facets. Similar to the emerald cut, the baguette lacks the sparkle of a brilliant cut. Yet, its few number of facets result in rich color and clarity. On a symbolic note, the baguette speaks to great intelligence, protection, and divine contemplation.

About Aquamarine
Aquamarine

Stone Information

Aquamarine crystals are known to be large in size and relatively clean and well-formed, making them particularly valuable to collectors of mineral specimens. Like many beryls, aquamarine forms large crystals suitable for sizable fashioned gems and carvings.

Legend & Lore

Aquamarine’s name comes from the Latin for seawater and it was said to calm waves and keep sailors safe at sea. March’s birthstone was also thought to enhance the happiness of marriages. The best gems combine high clarity with limpid transparency and blue to slightly greenish blue hues.

Color

Aquamarine is the green-blue to blue variety of the mineral beryl. (Emerald is the green to bluish green variety of the same mineral.) Its color is usually a light pastel greenish blue.

Aquamarine

Cleaning

Warm soapy water is always a safe cleaning method for aquamarine. Cleaning by ultrasonic and steam cleaners is usually safe unless the stone has liquid inclusions or fractures.

12.00 ct tw Aquamarine Baguette Sterling 8" Bracelet 1 5 1 1
Pale grey at best The stones in my bracelet are pale grey in color. No way are they even remotely blue! Next to my new Diamonique Asscher cut tennis bracelet, they look dirty grey. The price is way too steep to keep a bracelet whose stones aren't even blue. I love the baguette-shaped stones and the silky feel on the wrist, but the ugly color is extremely disappointing! I recommend instead the Sky Blue 38 ct. Line bracelet with toggle closure...it's blue! 06-15-12
