Just recently my husband and I decided to upgrade my ring. I chose to get a Morganite because I fell in love with it while I was looking at all different gemstones. After looking up the meaning of a couple of different stones that I liked (Aquamarine, Amethyst, Morganite) we felt the meaning of Morganite was the best for us.
Now that I have been wearing it everyday I have come across a few frustrations and am wondering if anyone has any tips or advice for me.
1. Sooooo many people ask if its a pink diamond and when I say no they seem to be disappointed. I am left wondering if I should switch the stone to avoid all of the questions.
2. I am having trouble looking at a colour everyday. I have never loved coloured jewelry so some days I wish it was just clear.
3. This stone attracts dust and dirt soooo much. I don’t know if its just me who has this problem but I cannot shower or wash my hands with it on or it becomes hazy until I clean it. So this means taking it off about 5-10 times a days which is driving me crazy.

Don’t let other people’s reactions to your stone change the way you feel about it. Those of us who love jewelry of all types appreciate different stones and preferences. That being said, I can see where looking at a color every day could get annoying.
I just recieved my morganite in the mail this week and haven’t taken it off yet. I cleaned the carpets, washed my dog, did dishes, put on lotion (it’s really dry in CO so I do this often), used hairspray, etcetera. She’s still as beautiful as when I opened the box. Is it a good quality stone? Are you sure it’s morganite… a few sketchy online sellers have been known to pass off pink glass as morganite (I’ll try to find the article on this).

A lot of online sellers are scamming buyers now because morganite is becoming rare. It’s no longer being mined at the main site so the price is going up.
If I had a genuine morganite a carat or over it, I’d hang on to it right now.

I actually have a morganite and diamond engagement ring as well. My FI proposed on New Years Eve and it sparkles beyond belief. It seems like if the stone is of good quality you shouldnt be having any trouble with it.
Here is a picture of my beauty!!

Oooohhhh! You are really lucky!
The mine in Mozambique which is the primary source for morganite has switched to mining for something or other that is used in making cell phones.
So morganite is getting more scarce.
