Jeff Graham was a big fan of aqua. He wrote: “The beryl family, including aquamarines, are some of the easiest gems to polish. Diamond polish is the most common method. A high-quality polish can give light aquamarines such great brilliance they might be confused with higher refractive index (RI) gems. Even with a moderate dispersion of 0.014, light stones with high crown angles will show their spectral colors well. This makes for an outstanding gemstone.” The color of aquamarine, however, can be washed out by highly reflective brilliant designs, so to intensifying the color think about choosing a deep designs. Barions or emerald cuts are often wise. Choosing a cut for aquamarine is a balancing game between brilliance and color.
