If you like morganite have you considered a champange diamond? Same look but a lot stronger.

Bezel settings will protect your ring the most.  You could get something like this made:

Sorry the picture is so big.  I’m not sure how to resize these images.

Sounds like a bezel would be a good option for you.

I always recommend moissanite! They are sparkley, but I don’t think that it’s something that would appear too flashy. Especially if you got a modest carat size such as the .50, or .75. 

As for metal I would go with palladium, yellow gold, or rose gold. I don’t like white gold because of the redipping thing.

As for settings here are a few from moissaniteco that I think would be nice choices! My favorite is the first one Smile

@Felina:  Moissnaite is your best option strength-wise. And you could clean it once a year & it’ll still look good. Have you considered peachy-pink moissanite?
 
Moissanite is not immodestly fiery, hehehe. Have you seen it in real life? I was worried about this exact issue, but was pleasantly surprised by the LACK of fire in my stone.
 
I wanted a ring I could wear constantly without worry, and without having to be careful of it. Originally my man was going to get this setting http://www.moissaniteco.com/round-moissanite-half-bezel-bypass-solitaire-ring-p-9101.html
 
But we ended up going with this one, a customised platinum number:

Totally not what I thought I’d end up with, but it’s definitely low-maintenance and durable. Don’t discount your aesthetic preferences!

I second err…. really third… the bezel option! You can get a warmer color diamond or champagne diamond in it or even a pink or orange sapphire to kind of get that morganite look….try Etsy and they can customize something for you

@GFerg:  It really is.  It’s this ring. Rose cut moissanite in 14k rose gold.

@discodance:  I thought it was a rose cut. Those are so pretty, and I rarely see them.

My ring has the celestial compass stone :). It is super shiny. Though mine does require cleaning but I think thats more my lifestyle than anything else. I run about 40 miles a week, swim 2-3 miles, bake, read, work, go to school, play violin, take care of a kid. I’m gogogogogo all the time. I’m also really ocd about keeping it super clean so I keep a cleaning solution at the house and drop it in once a week.

Do note that the celestial compass cut is only done by Larry Woods. You’ll have to find a vendor who carries them. Krikawa where I got mine has many very ornate settings but they also have some very simple study settings. My setting is very ornate but its built like a fortress so I can vouch for their work. Krikawa can cost a pretty penny but they do have a layaway option as well.Their simpler settings are about the price you’d pay else where for something similair. They also currently have a 9 week lead time for rings. They will send you the stone before you purchase with a deposit on it. The stone will come overnight for you to inspect and return. This is how we picked my stone. Their selection online is much smaller than what they carry in the vault. They are very responsive to emails so dont feel shy.

There are a few vendors online who get Larry Woods stones as well. You can also contact them through their website. The colors of his stones tend to come from regions with more unusual colors than the standard blues, pinks and yellows though.

You should contact Joseph schubach jewelers about their barely pink moissanite. It’s colored like morganite but durable like moissanite. It’s gorgeous! I was going to have that for my engagement ring but decided I really want diamond. And I also agree with the recommendation of a bezel setting. If you do a search here on wbee for barely pink moissanite I think you will find some pictures of jcent’s ring.

Bezel is great and they are very beautiful in person. I don’t have one for my diamond but I have a lot of other stones in bezel and totally recommend it!
