A pink gemstone that shines like a star, morganite is a member of the Beryl family, like emerald and aquamarine.
It’s a beautiful gemstone that comes in a range of colours from blush pink and rose to subtle peach. But, that’s not where its qualities end. Morganite is a pretty durable gem. It stands at a decent 7.5-8 on the Mohs scale, which is a measure of a gemstone’s hardness. This makes it a relatively durable gemstone, as compared to the dainty Tanzanite. This also means that morganite is suitable for reasonable everyday wear, making it better than just a good choice for an engagement ring.
The trend of opting for an unconventional engagement ring is catching up and many brides-to-be have their eyes on morganite. This sparkling pink gemstone is as attractive as the traditional diamond and this beautiful and feminine stone makes just as much of a statement too.
What Is Morganite?
Morganite is a semi-precious stone that’s pink in colour that kind of keeps on changing. The hue can range from orange to coral to salmon to a subtle pink as described above. A light peachy-pink is the most common hue of this gemstone.
The history of the Morganite gemstone
Morganite isn’t a new gem in any sense of the word. It was first discovered on the coast of Madagascar in 1910 and was named after the well-known banker J.P. Morgan due to his love of gemstones and in appreciation of his important gifts of gemstones to various museums around the world.
Morganite vs. Diamond
Glittering diamond engagement rings are passe, morganite rings are trending right now. This is because morganite is much more cost-effective than diamonds. It is also an aesthetically pleasing option because of its colour. it comes as a refreshing alternative to a colourless diamond.
Morganite is also a Type 1 stone, which is a clarity grading that indicates a gemstone has no visible inclusions to the naked eye.
On the flip side, morganite is a softer stone than a diamond, and is, therefore, more susceptible to getting scratched or damaged over time. And it can never sparkle like a diamond because diamonds have a higher refractive index.
What to look for in a Morganite ring?
The colour of this gem varies so much, you need to decide exactly what colour you want and take it forward from there.
The colour of morganite is often dependent on the size of the stone, as we have seen in Tanzanite as well. Morganites typically have deeper colour saturation in larger sizes, so you may want to increase your carat weight requirements to get the colour you desire while buying a morganite pendant necklace for example.
The setting of the ring or the morganite pendant necklace comes next. This is what you should be looking out for especially as morganite is a softer stone that is kept secure by its setting.
Wait, Morganite jewellery is for men too
Morganite jewellery is not just limited to women. Men can be flirty and fun too, especially millennial men. Mangatrai Neeraj believes that jewellery is a powerful though a silent way of announcing who you are to the world.

Caring for your Morganite jewellery
You should clean your morganite jewellery on a fairly regular basis, but be gentle with it. Just fill a bowl with warm water and a squeeze of dish soap, then soak your jewellery and lightly scrub with a clean toothbrush to remove grit and grime. Set to dry on a clean paper towel. Clean about once every six months or so.
