That ring is gorgeous, and similar to mine! My fiance bought online, but through a chain jewelry store instead of etsy. I love having a morganite ring! It is gaining popularity, but isn’t super common yet.
People will tell you that you have to baby morganite because it is a softer stone than a diamond, which is true, but it is not that much softer. I think it is an 8? On the mohs scale whike diamond is a 10 (I think).
The one thing I will say about morganite is that since it is a beryl stone, it shows dirt and oil easily, so you do need to clean it more often than a diamond. I soak mine for a few mins in warm, soapy water then scrub with a baby toothbrush, rinse and blast it with a blow drier for a few seconds because my water leaves spots. I don’t wear my ring in the shower, so it has been easy to build this into my regular routine. I only do it once or twice a week.

Mine is from Etsy – David Arik at SellerofJewels (he also has a physical store in CA). As long as your Etsy seller offers some sort of 30-day guarantee, I think you should be fine!
As for morganite and rose gold – I am completely obsessed. I literally get comments on my ring every day about how unique and stunning it is (outside of the Bee, morganite seems much less known). At the beginning I was terrified I could hurt it, but it’s taken more than a few hard bonks over ~2 months of being on my finger and has held up just fine.
And like cewright17 said, I clean it often to keep it sparkling! I use a dazzle stik which is easy and fast.

I found the jeweler who made my ring through etsy. Her name is Jacqui and her shop is called Studio1040design, she also has a website and instagram. I can’t speak highly enough about her, she’s great to work with! The quality is outstanding, and she’s super fast! The prices are a little higher than other etsy sellers, but it’s worth every penny in my opinion.
