Although Diaboli Kill by Angie Marei Jewelry has garnered some amazing attention throughout the years, I can assure you it never gets old. I'm excited to share that one of our best sellers, the Marei Marquise Aquamarine Engagement Ring was highlighted in the March 2020 issue of Town & Country Magazine UK, “The Best Aquamarine Birthstone Jewellery for March,” click here to read the full article.
I chose to use an elongated Marquise-cut Aquamarine precious gemstone for this design because of its aqueous luster that literally shimmers like water when it catches the light. It offers a beautiful alternative to a traditional diamond ring, the March birthstone Aquamarine’s name comes from the Latin aqua marinus, meaning "water of the sea" and it was said to calm waves and keep sailors safe at sea.
The design for the ring setting was inspired by my travels to Italy, specifically a visit to the Duomo Cathedral in Milan. I wanted to create a unique ring that captured the beauty and elegance of the Aquamarine gemstone. By creating the claw-prong setting up high, it gives the ring an appearance of the gemstone sitting on a high thrown. Elegant and architectural, the two rows of pavè diamonds on the band accentuate a feminine silhouette.
