This Morganite is just perfect - perfect cut, a modified emerald cut that has beautiful faceting; a perfect size - everyday wearable to the office/dinner date, etc. It is a beautiful right-hand ring or it would make a gorgeous alternative engagement ring.
The color is beautiful - a pinkish peach - the photographs were taken in direct sunlight so you can see the accurate color of the gemstone. We showcased it in our 18K rose gold setting with baguette colorless diamonds at the shoulders and diamonds on the setting basket - for sparkle at every angle.
What exactly is a Morganite? Morganites are part of the Beryl family, like Emeralds, Aquamarines, Heliodors (canary yellow), Goshenite (clear), Blue Beryl (medium to light blue) and Green Beryl (light mint green). Morganites are often called 'Pink Emeralds'. They have a beautiful, vitreous luster and are usually a peach, blush or peachy pink color. They were discovered in San Diego County, CA, are named after J. P. Morgan, and are just spectacular gemstones. They are hard - 7.5 on the Moh's Scale, so they make durable, spectacular jewelry, suitable for everyday wear.
This is an exquisite combination beauty and sophistication.
