This is just a guess, but the cheaper stones may be heat-treated for better color, whereas expensive ones are untreated. That’s how it is with a lot of gemstones. Also, many stores/sellers are way more overpriced than others. I got my morganite e-ring for just $100 (.95ct stone, real thin 10k rose gold setting) and the stone looks really killer. So I don’t think a cheap stone will look bad! You should check out jtv.com too if you haven’t already, they have several larger morganite styles.

@MabelleBliss:  Many morganites, especially the pink ones, are heat treated or irradiated. It helps to get rid of brown tones. I think you’re seeing prices jump everywhere because: 1. Morganite is very trendy now, and some sellers are catching up on that, and 2. the saturation of the color, the clarity of the stone, and the kind of color (true pink, peachy pink, lavender pink, etc) does make a difference.

What I would do if I were you, is buy the stone separately from the setting, so you can find a setting you love and a morganite that is a steal. The ring you posted from etsy looks pretty good, but $800 seems kind of steep to me. The JTV rings are nice, and the morganite is pretty good, but do make sure you know if the ring is 10k or 14k gold, and price that out accordingly.

Also, if the pinky peach color is what you really want, I would look into a peachy pink sapphire or spinel. They hold up longer than morganites, and the color isn’t at risk for fading like with morganite.

Here’s a morganite in the size you were looking at: http://www.gemselect.com/morganite/morganite-329373.php
