Edwardian Quatrefoil Aquamarine Earrings

$925

Aquamarine gets its name from the Latin aqua marinus, meaning "sea water." In Ancient Greece, the stone was aligned with the god of the sea, Poseidon. Aquamarine amulets carved with an image of the deity were often carried by sailors as protective talismans on ocean voyages. According to the New Age school of thinking, aquamarine is believed to open channels of communication and promote peace and harmony. Dating to the late Edwardian period, these quatrefoil earrings are made in two tone gold with pear cut aquamarines.
