I have a morganite engagement ring.

It’s true that morganite is a softer stone. I have an identical back-up stone in case I ever damage the one I have. I also don’t wear my ring while doing anything active or while cleaning. I plan to have a few different bands to swap out and wear instead.

Here’s a picture:

I would not recommend morganite for an ering honestly.  Certainly not for everyday wear.  I am sentimental and would hate to not have the stone my hubby proposed with.  Would you consider peachy pink moissanite?  Much more durable and more sparkly…pretty much the same colour.  If not try for maybe a precision cut sapphire in the shade you want.  A gem cutter like Jeff White would be a great place to start.

here is my peachy pink moissanite

Songbird, I got my stones from JTV, but they may not have any in stock right now. A good round morganite with good color is hard to find. And you are right to be wary of the cut – it is very very important for coloured gemstones.

I second jcent’s suggestion of peachy pink moissanite. From what I can tell it is a beautiful color and definitely more durable if that’s a concern.

@songbird711:  no actually, the peachy pink is the lightest shade avaiable.  It took months and multiple attempts to get the colour.  Like all moissy, it is a bit of a chameleon.  If you are at all curious about it, I would order a loose stone to see it in person.  Moissy really needs to be seen in real life to know if you like it or not.  πŸ™‚
