Aquamarine Engagement Rings for March Proposals
Aquamarine goes with every type of metal. It pairs well with diamonds as well as emerald, sapphire, morganite, and even contrasting stones such as dark ruby. Some of our favourite aquamarine engagement rings include the following:
Gold Twisted Oval
This romantic ring has a twisted band in gold, with an oval stone in the centre. Oval cut stones are a classic choice, elongating the finger subtly. This ring would work equally well in rose gold for a gentle contrast between the aqua colour of the stone and the rosy gold of the metal. Platinum would also work for a cooler toned ring.
Round Halo Pave
Halo rings remain a popular style and have been favoured by brides for centuries. This elegant ring features a pale aquamarine at the centre, with a halo of pave stones surrounding the stone. These tiny diamonds continue onto the band for added sparkle and shine.
Diamond Clustered Band
For something feminine and pretty, this ring features tiny diamonds on the band in small clusters. The result is a ring with plenty of visual detail, without being over the top. A centre aquamarine in a prong setting adds the final touch. You could use a diamond in the centre and aquamarine stones in the clusters.
Rose Gold Clusters
Another way to use clusters in your ring is to add them on the sides of the ring. In this gorgeous ring, a princess cut diamond turns into an east west ring, with its corners facing east to west. Tiny aquamarine stones are positioned at the top of the ring, creating an unusual ring that is unique yet understated.
Emerald Three Stone
Emerald cut stones are sophisticated and striking, with a flat top and carefully cut edges. A pale aquamarine takes centre stage in this ring, with small diamonds on either side. Three stone rings represent your past, present, and future – ideal for those who are seeking a deeply symbolic ring.
Minimal Stacking Ring

If you’re looking for something minimal, a delicate stacking ring is sure to be a perfect choice. These rings are designed to be layered. Whether you layer over your wedding ring or add a second ring for an anniversary of the date you met or another special day, these rings are versatile and simple.
Marquise Three Stone
Marquise cut stones work in a wide variety of ring designs. They can be placed horizontally or vertically. In this design, the centre stone is positioned from top to bottom, with diamonds on each side to form a three stone ring. You could also swap the stones to have a diamond in the centre and aquamarine stones on the sides.
Round Twisted Band
For an ultra-romantic style, twisted bands are always a winner. This ring features a delicate pave band entwined with a plain metal band. Both bands flow towards the centre stone, meeting at the top and bottom respectively to wrap around the aquamarine. It would work well in any metal, from platinum to rose gold or yellow gold.
