It is difficult to tell that the ring is aquamarine unless you are in the sunlight. That being said, I can't complain based on the price of the ring. I love it regardless. I got a size 8 and it seems very loose compared to my other size 8 rings.
I love the blue green color of aquamarine, however, when it arrived, this ring is clear with maybe only a hint of blue color. I will return. Additionally, I ordered an 8 to fit middle or pointer finger as I wear a whole size smaller on my ring finger, however this ring is sized quite small - size up by a whole size on this one.
I received this ring as an engagement ring. What I love about this ring: it's 10k gold, has held up beautifully, the center stone is cushion cut (my favorite cut) and unlike most stones with the cushion cut design, it is small enough that it does not overwhelm the hand and large enough to have that more (believably) expensive look. I specifically chose this ring because Of its lighter blue/clear color. (Mine is perfectly clear and passes for a diamond) The reviews helped me decide to choose this one. Please be advised that it is very rare to find an aquamarine that is bright in color! Also, it is especially rare to find one that is this cheap.
Loved this ring in the picture. Couldn't wait to get it. When I received it, my heart dropped. It didn't sparkle at all and the center stone is just about clear. I'm very disappointed with it. If I wouldn't be charged a fee for restocking, I'd return it. If you want a clear stone, maybe it would work for you.
I received this ring as a first anniversary gift, the ring is beautiful and fits perfectly, the stone is a little lighter then I had hoped but its to be expected with an aquamarine gemstone so I wouldn't expect the gem color exactly what you see pictured, shows a little more blue in different lighting and angles
