I just had to respond to this alough I don’t have a picture. I have a morganite ering set in rose gold. I wanted something different and love the color pink. It has beautiful sparkle and is a lighter pink (if you’re looking for something vibrant ,morgaite is not for you) and I wear it every day. I don’t wear it when I clean the house or do any chores outside. Although diamonds are the hardest gemstone, you still have to take care as diamonds can chip. I have a friend who’s diamond has a chip on the outer edge (girdle). I also know someone who has a opal wedding band, which is about as soft as you can get. She just takes care also to not wear it when she does chores and it’s held up over 30 years! People got engaged with all kinds of gemstones before diamonds became popular in the 30″s and many are still passed down. Alough diamonds are beautiful and durable (and I own some myself) I think that it’s nice to choose something different and unusual … my morganite has held up fine. I do love diamonds and wear them often, but it’s the morganite ring that gets all the attention. I’m constantly getting compliments on my ring. Morganite is 7.5 to 8 on the mohs scale which is still durable for everyday wear.
