Glasgow's Taste for Aquamarines: Buy and sell in McTear's Jewellery Auctions The popularity of the aquamarine shows no sign of waning at McTear’s. Items set with the alluring pale blue gem are often those most popular at Jewellery Auction viewings, particularly Edwardian examples.  Part of the beryl family, the aquamarine is considered to suit all skin colours and work with all of the traditional precious metals. It is fairly straight forward to cut and polish, adding to its popularity among jewellers and lapidarists (stone cutters.) It has a higher occurrence rate than many of the other types of beryl and is generally fairly free of inclusions or flaws.

If you have an item of jewellery set with a light blue stone and would like it tested to see if it is indeed an aquamarine then pop in to see us weekdays office hours. We offer free valuations on all jewellery, we can do so approximately via email too. Contact us on sarah@mctears.co.uk or elaine@mctears.co.uk  0141 810 2880

Check out our Jewellery Auctions taking place every five weeks with items estimated from £50 to £30,000.
