Aqua Chalcedony is a cool blue-green translucent gemstone. Although chalcedony is found in a huge array of colours including brown, green, grey, orange, red and white, the Aqua Chalcedony is famed for its soft colour, reminiscent of tropical turquoise waters. Aqua Chalcedony can vary from a soft powder blue through to a pale turquoise. The colour tends to be more intense in larger gemstones.
Chalcedony derives its name from the region of Kalkedon in the ancient Roman empire. Ancient Greek and Roman civilizations particularly prized Chalcedony, using the gemstone for carved seals, cameo brooches and signet rings.
Aqua Chalcedony is a traditional birthstone for March. Our sterling silver March birthstone pendant displays the gemstone in a simple polished surround. Matching chalcedony stud earrings are also available to complete the set, or to wear separately as classic everyday earrings.
Our beautiful Aqua Chalcedony Bracelet features both round and oval checker-cut Aqua Chalcedony gemstones on a simple sterling silver belcher chain. Each gemstone has been carefully set in simple polished silver surrounds to encase and display the gemstones.
In our Aqua Chalcedony Necklace, two different sizes of round checker-cut Aqua Chalcedony gemstones are set in polished sterling silver settings and strung on a simple silver belcher chain. The long necklace can be worn as a long single strand, or doubled up to create a shorter necklace.
A large oval Aqua Chalcedony gem forms the centrepiece of this simple hook bangle. The simplicity of the design allows the gemstone to be the prime feature of the jewellery. The unique Aqua Chalcedony gemstone; milky yet vividly blue-green beautifully contrasts against 18ct gold vermeil.
