Aquamarine's name is derived from the Latin words "aqua" and "marina," meaning water of the sea. This table of this dramatic 40 carat watery baby blue aquamarine is overlaid with a sinuous golden plaque with the initial "B" lined with raspberry red rubies. The aquamarine is is securely held by ruby tipped prongs that rest on a delicately hand chased leaf border surrounded by glossy black enamel contained in a twisted rope border.
