How to make a splash without getting wet.
Ever since ancient times, sailors have sworn by aquamarine for protection on the open water. For them, it was a sacred gem connected to Neptune. But today you don't have to leave shore to reap the benefits of this legendary blue gem, because your ship has come in.
Claim your "Mermaid's Treasure." On any vessel crossing the oceans, there was no more precious cargo than aquamarine. Sailors paid handsomely for its power, considering it more valuable than diamonds or gold. In scientific terms, the chemical composition of our Mare beads are nearly identical to precious emeralds. They begin life as geological twins underground, colorless until something sparks a change. Add a dash of chromium and they become emerald. Mix in some iron instead and you get the brilliant blues of aquamarine. That's the beauty of chemistry.
A legend among luxury jewelers.
Named for the Latin words for "water of the sea," aquamarine shines with all the colors of the ocean. Each bead is like a droplet of the sea frozen in space and time. Fifth Avenue thinks nothing of offering a strand of aquamarine "pebbles" for $12,000. But with a color this captivating, you deserve more than a dollop.
That's why we collected the finest blue stones from three continents, polished them to perfection and arranged them in these masterpieces. The Mare Aquamarine Bracelet features 60 carats of aquamarine beads, plus spacers layered in gleaming 14K gold. The 15-carat Mare Earrings feature aquamarine beads and gold-layered spacers that dangle from gold-layered French hooks. Nobody but Stauer can give you this much genuine aquamarine for so little.
