An introduction to Morganite and diamond halo engagement rings
Morganite continues to grow in popularity for engagement rings. Alternative pale pink gemstones include pink diamonds (very expensive) and pink sapphires—a popular choice to appear alongside white diamonds.
Morganite is the pink form of Beryl named after the American banker and philanthropist Henry Pierpoint Morgan. It is mainly translucent and works beautifully within Rose Gold, White Gold and Platinum settings. Warm shades of pink in pastel hues from peach to pink, give buyers a subtle choice. The pink colouration is a result of the presence of Manganese.
Most examples of Morganite originate from pegmatite mines in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Other sources include Afghanistan, Mozambique, Namibia, and the US —minor and generally inconsistent sources of Morganite. The original Madagascar deposit sets the standard for the best material although modern day supplies are comparatively small.
Morganite engagement rings are popular owing to a lower price than similar looking pink diamond or pink sapphire engagement rings. An affordable gemstone available in many shapes including cushion cut Morganite as shown in our main image.
