Is morganite a good choice for an engagement ring?

I would do research on how durable it is.  One thing that makes diamonds (and moissonite) a good choice is the hardness.  I think that shands up well to everyday wear and tear.  I have a tanzanite, and I chipped it once, and I don’t even wear it everyday.  So I would research and see how durable morganite is.

Try looking into peach or champagne sapphires. They are a lot more durable than morganite and you’ll most likely be able to find something in the same color range you’re looking for!

I wish I could remember the thread.  Someone recently posted a peach sapphire ring that was amazing.  Really pretty.  It was a halo, and I am usually not that fond of halos but this ring was really pretty!

I have a peach champagne sapphire and it is beautiful! I was looking into morganite as well at the beginning but they are softer stones so after some research I decided to go with the sapphire. They are a 9 on the MOHs scale which is right under a diamond.

Morganite is lovely…but it has one very serious drawback. It fades, actually loses color. Look for sapphires or spinel in that color range. They’re a better bet. Just my $.02
