Santa Maria aquamarine is one of the finest varieties of beryl, featuring a deeply saturated blue color. It is widely believed to hold the sea's powers and is considered "The Stone of the Sea." In the 1970s, this Contemporary piece was custom designed and exclusively handmade by Carroll's Jewelers. Magnificent, large, and luxurious, this beryl aquamarine gemstone equals an impressive 41.69 carats in total weight. The octagonal-shaped pendant contains one emerald cut aquamarine fine, Top Gem Quality, and Free of Inclusions (FI) as well as non-heat treated. It sparkles throughout the 4-prong setting, surrounded by 40 pave-set, brilliant-cut diamonds G in color, with a VS2 clarity grade, equaling 1.64 carats in total weight. The large aquamarine gemstone is held in place by a 4-prong setting, with the gem measuring 22.8 x 19.21 x 14.78 mm. The pendant is also enhanced by a fancy, handmade 14K two-tone bail fold-over clasp, securing the stunning blue-green aquamarine gem. It has a stamp marked "14K" on the white gold frame on the back and the words "Carroll's" towards the top. An optional 16-inches, two-tone, reversible Omega necklace is featured with a convenient push-button clasp for easy opening and closing to complete the piece. The necklace is 6 mm wide which is sold separately.
