Aquamarine Pendant in 14K White Gold with Diamond Accents
Nice Birthday Gift!
I received this pretty necklace as a birthday gift from my partner. Thanks baby! This is a really nice gift for someone who has a March birthday, with an Aquamarine birthstone.
The necklace is classic looking. The stone sparkles a lot. It's a very light blue, with a hint of light green. I noticed that a some reviews of this necklace say the stone is too light compared to the picture, but the light color of the stone is perfect for this particular gem. My birthstone (Aquamarine) tends to be a very light blue/green sparkly gem. So, real stones of high quality are not a a deep color and tend to look shiny baby blue (with a hint of light green). I tend to prefer deeper blue jewelry like sapphires for elegant evenings when I dress up, but I've always thought that my birthstone is very pretty. It actually has an unusual color, which reminds me of the ocean when it's completely clear and translucent (i.e. like in tropical places). To bring out the color of the stone, I usually wear it with blue and green outfits.
This necklace has a classic, as opposed to contemporary, look (and not a particularly unusual or striking design), but it's very beautiful. In sum, you can't go wrong with giving it as a gift. I love mine!

Stunning! Far more elegant in person
I received this necklace as a Christmas gift from my boyfriend. It's so beautiful! It's more elegant and delicate in person. The filigree detailing adds depth to the setting, and the teardrop shop is flawless. As one reviewer mentioned, the blue is much lighter, almost translucent, but that's the definition of an aquamarine -- if you want a deeper blue, go with blue topaz. Love, love, love this necklace!

My husband gave me this necklace as a birthday gift. The picture doesn't do it justice! It is very elegant and the color of the stones is beautiful.

Does not look like the picture
The stone is essentially clear and does not appear blue like the picture. I was pretty disappointed and would not recommend it if you like the color of the stone in the picture.
