What is Morganite? Morgnite Engagement Rings and Jewelry

The next best thing to a diamond is a morganite stone. The light pink stone has become increasingly popular among brides, fashion influencers, and celebrities. Morganite has taken the jewelry industry by storm and is being featured more in fine jewelry and engagement rings. Though we’ve all heard about it, and some of us have witnessed its beauty up-close and personal, many are still wondering, what exactly is morganite?

WHAT IS MORGANITE?
Morganite is a pink semi-precious stone belonging to the beryl mineral family which also includes the more common beryls like emerald and aquamarine.

Available in a variety of colors including pink, rose, peach, purple and salmon, the pink and rose colored stones are the most sought after today. The deeper shades tend to be much more rare and valuable.

On the Mohs scale, morganites stand at approximately 7.5. Compared to the diamond score of 10, morganites are softer and are more prone to scratching, so extra care is needed for everyday jewelry like engagement rings. Not only are they softer than the traditional diamonds, this stunning pink-colored stone is budget-friendly and much less expensive on a dollar-per-carat basis. Morganites are a great alternative to diamonds because of its combination of hardness, durability, clarity and soft romantic hue.

HISTORY OF MORGANITES
The magical morganite stone was originally first discovered on the coast of Madagascar in 1911. Within the same year, the romantic pale-pink stone was named after mineral collector and financier J.P. Morgan.

Despite the physical beauty of morganites, the stone is believed to host divine attributes such as compassion, assurance, and healing. It is believed to provide stress relief and positive attitudes, so wearing your morganite jewelry daily is the perfect way to infuse these values into your everyday life.

WHY MORGANITE ENGAGEMENT RINGS?
Morganite engagement rings are the most popular choice today among morganite jewelry. The pink stone is ideally and frequently paired with rose gold as the pinkish tone of morganites complement the pink hue of the metal. This dreamy pretty-in-pink combination is the ultimate symbol of romance. Many new brides are opting for the warm, fresh look because of its unmatched beauty, affordable price and durability.
