    Hello! I agree with PP that morganite isn’t the best choice for everyday wear. As they mentioned, if you want that color in a more durable stone, a pink or peach sapphire is the way to go. Moissy is a great option as well, but you won’t have the color. I do have a ring that is moissy in a diamond halo, and I personally love it! The diamonds in the halo return some colored sparkle but more white light, while the moissy is a little less crisp in faceting, and returns more of the rainbow of colors and less of the white light. They definitely look different, but with the size differential between the center stone and the halo stones, I like it. To me, it looks a little like a type of iridescent, shimmery colored gemstone in a diamond halo.

    I am one of the rare bees who opted to go with morganite. it is a softer stone, but I baby my jewlery. I’ve had it for a year, and it looks just the same as day one. You do need to clean it (oils do make it cloudy) but i usually do about once a month now. I did choose morganite knowing (and expecting) that I may need to change the center stone out at some point in the future, but at the price point its at we are comfortable doing so. I just love the colouring and look so much that I didn’t want to give it up 🙂

    I originally wanted morganite too and got a peachy pink sapphire in a moissanite halo instead. I voted moissanite because of its durability and it can come in other colors. But I agree with other posts that peach sapphire might give the  color you’re after but more durability.

    I also loved Morganite and bought myself a lovely ring to celebrate a career goal. 

    It gets dirty and dull so easily, I found it annoying. I sold it. Plus, they are soft. 

    Moissanite is super brilliant, if that matters for you, and super durable.
