Selling Aquamarine Jewellery at Auction: McTear's, Glasgow, Scotland 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. Aquamarine is often confused with blue topaz or even glass. If you have an item of jewellery set with a blue stone then please come and see us- one of our gemmologically qualified staff can test this gem for you in house. If you would like to consign jewellery or discuss the selling process then contact sarah@mctears.co.uk or pop in to our saleroom weekdays office hours.
