Moissaniteco.com sells peachy pink moissanite stones, and they are gorgeous! Off the top of my head, I know there is one bee named MunsterCat (I think) that has one and her ring is so beautiful! If you search her name you should be able to find pictures. I love morganite rings, but they have a different kind of shine and I prefer diamond-like sparkle that moissanite has.

Mine is super sparkly, it seems the cut helps. Mine is a cushion cut

@mrspinesol:  I know you were looking for morganite vs sapphire, but here is a video I made today of my morganite e-ring and loose moissanite side by side under halogen lighting. This lighting is the most sparkle I get out of my morganite. Both RB, the morganite is 7.3mm and the moissy 7.1

@mrspinesol:  Same boat! Im in college and he graduated in the spring! πŸ™‚ I also work full time.  He was down for taking on some side jobs and waiting and busting his butt in general over it but either way-I wanted a sapphire. lol.  He said no to the blue though… πŸ™ but I have fallen in love with my ring.

I have a morganite, it’s pretty sparly when it’s clean but gets dirty and dull suuuuper fast. I think saphires are objectively sparklier, although I haven’t seen one in a light shade in person to compare.

I have never seen morganite in person, but my white sapphire is very sparkly with lots of scintillation. As others have already said, sparkle has a lot to do with cut. I would go with sapphire just because it’s more durable in the long run, and the color won’t fade in sunlight like morganite eventually does.
