I don’t have a morganite, I have a sapphire, but I’m piping in because I did some research around this. We had considered morganite because it had the colour range I was looking for. We decided against morganite in the end because it requires cleaning more often, it doesn’t have as much sparkle as a sapphire, and it would likely need to be replaced at some point in my life if I was going to be wearing the ring every day.

Here’s a photo of my sapphire. It has a similar colour (although the colour changes), but will last much longer. It hasn’t ever really needed to be cleaned, but I have cleaned it once at home in the past 1.5 months.

Mine is morganite, though more pink than peach I think. Had it for about a year now, no scratches, chips, dents etc. Banged it a few times against tables, walls, doors etc. No issues so far. 

I do have to clean it every few days if I want it nice and sparkly but I can put up with it being less sparkly / a bit cloudy if I’m lazy lol (not that obvious under regular lighting, it was only obvious when I went to jewellery stores to try on wedding bands lol!) I do recommend getting a setting that you can clean from the bottom and side, otherwise it’ll trap dirt and oil etc and you can’t clean it, will look horrible. Also the cut and quality makes a big difference.

I have a morganite RHR and it does get dirty super easily. Drives me a little crazy.

peachyk :  I wanted morganite as well but was eventually talked out of it because of the softness of the stone. Just like

blushingbee2019 I went with a peach sapphire. It took FH an incredibly long time to find a stone that was more peach than pink but he eventually found it on gemsny.com.

Mine is a rhr I received as a gift for my college graduation. I absolutely love the color of the stone and am so happy to have one. It’s morganite and diamond in rose gold. While I’ve heard they’re soft, they’re a 7.5-8 on the Mohs hardness scale (diamond is a 10, sapphire is a 9) take that how you will. From what I’ve heard on here, if you can find a peach sapphire that is the color you like at the price you’re willing to pay, I would go for that over a morganite- at least for daily wear).
