I LOVE big beautiful stones like that! I don’t have a morganite but yours is really beautiful!

Beautiful ring! The hardiness of the stone will show after many years of wear, especially if you wear it during showers, bedtime, chores, and so on. If you care for it, it will last longer. The damage is typically microscopic at first, and you see the damage show up little by little, after a few or several years.

4 weeks is no time. I would guess at about the three month point I noticed facet abrasions, albeit mild ones. Mine was a right hand ring, and I was not hard on it at all. Once these abrasions happen the stone ceases to have the same ability to be bright and brilliant, and from there it was a daily task for me of cleaning the stone to have it looking less like a piece of glass and more like the lovely stone I purchased. 

I ended up getting rid of mine, because it annoyed me so much.

I know this is a really negative report, and I am sorry for that. I genuinely hope that your experience is more positive, and that you get a lot of joy out of you beautiful ring.

try using windex and a soft bristled toothbrush to clean it instead of soap – no need to rinse and no marks left behind

Lovely ring! I’ve had mine for 4 months now and it’s so pretty! It really does depend on the quality of the morganite and how well it was cut for whether it will cloud or not, and also how shiny it is. Mine gets cleaned in warm water and Dawn with a child’s tooth brush once a week and it looks great all the time! πŸ™‚ similar to yours but mine has a halo and a little deeper color. If I have to replace the stone down the road so be it. But I’m gonna wear it and love it until then! I do feel it’s a little more secure having a halo; at least I hope so. There’s a pear shaped morganite owner on this board who, after 4 years (if I remember correctly), it’s not in such great shape anymore. Idk. I bought my stone knowing it’s not “diamond strong,” so like I said if I have to replace it down the line it shouldn’t be too expensive…

missyjz :  not sure if windex is too strong for a morganite. Please check this first before spraying and damaging your stone. I personally will not spray Windex on my jewelry regardless of the stone (I have a diamond and I still don’t spray it with Windex)

Just a tip for drying! I clean mine with dawn and a soft tooth brush and then after rinsing it under water I use my blow drier on the  ‘cool’ setting to get rid of the water. It works great and I never have smudges. I love my morganite ring so much and I definitely have gone into it with the mindset that it will likely have to be replaced at some point, especially with it being a solitaire but I’m okay with that. I’m sure I will be able to find another one with similar coloring when the time comes and so far it’s still looking great!

missyjz :  Your ring is divine, I am so in love with morganite at the moment, but also worried about how hardy it would be.

I am really wanting a morganite ring in rose gold. I think this will be my next purchase. I am strongly considering wearing morganite to get married.

Mine lasted 2 years and I didn’t even wear it daily. When I did wear it, I took it off to wash my hands because as soon as it got wet, it looked like glass. I never wore it to the gym, never wore it while cooking, never wore it in the shower…i.e. I babied it and it still ended up in the condition it was in. I eventually removed the stone from the setting. I cleaned it in dish soap with a baby toothbrush and used my hair dryer to dry it. It looked great when it was clean, but sadly, that was short lived.

Apologies for the Debbie Downer post, but it’s a reality of morganite and the cut doesn’t change how soft the stone is. I just think it’s helpful for others to see all sides.
