Hi There Beezzz,
I have changed my mind on the gemstone I want in my e-ring! I posted previously on ruby rings and red gemstones. Well let me tell the entire story, my dream e-ring was a natural pearl ring. However after lots and lots of research and going to see a local pearl importer, I have decided against it. Pearls are very soft, only 2.5-4.5 on the Mohs scale, the harder pearls are the natural pearls that are very very rear and very expensive. I was told that if I wanted a pearl ring to get one, but make peace with the fact that I will have to replace the pearl every now and again. I am very sentimental and would probably rather walk around with a worn pearl than replace it. As I have mentioned in previous posts I have a very hands-on type of job, this would make it even more difficult to keep the pearl safe. Moving on to my next choice, I then decided on a stoneless e-ring. This is perfect I could add rose-, yellow- and white-gold, it will be tough and would be able to take the punishment. When I told my BF that I really like the stoneless e-ring, he was not sold on the idea at all. He then suggested a ruby ring and I fell in love after spending time looking at ruby rings online. I found a very nice engraved band with a solitaire set (in previous posts) and decided first on yellow gold then on rose gold and a ruby. When I got the price of an actual ruby, I almost fell off my chair! Then I went and did some research and found that natural rubies aren’t that natural anymore with heat- and lead glass treatment, and the more natural the more expensive! I need to mention that I have no desire for an expensive ring at all. Then I did research on other red gemstones (see more previous posts), I found spinel and garnets to be equally beautiful! Then decided that that will do, until I saw a Morganite ring in rose gold – and I fell in love! Head over heels! I have been looking at pictures online when I have time, and it will be perfect for me! I am very fair skinned, Morganite is so subtle and elegant and will add just that little bit of sparkle I am looking for! It is soooooooooo beautiful! I have a specific set in mind, one I originally wanted to use for the stoneless e-ring, an Edwardian set with engraved shank. That will look beautiful in rose gold with the Morganite.
Now my reason for this post, could all who have a Morganite ring post pictures please? I would love to see how they look! We are going to meet with our jeweler soon, time is just an issue, my BF does not have a very flexible schedule and so I have to wait until he is able to make the appointment – wait impatiently I might add!
Thank you for your time Beezzz!
