    I like all 3 pretty equally. They all are beautiful.

    I really like how the rose gold brings out the warmth in the stone!

    I voted for the round halo ring – it is stunning.

    My personal preference would be the style/colouring of the round, but with an oval morganite, not sure if that would be an option for you though.

    The cushion, while pretty, is too large and resembles a cocktail ring. I love large stones, but I always think they look classier in rounds and ovals (unless they are set as a solitare, then large princess cuts, or emeralds etc. look gorgeous).

    I like all three, but for some reason the cushion cut really stand out (in a good way!). While it may look a bit like a cocktail ring, it’s also unique, whereas I’ve seen a few round and oval morganite halos already.

    I voted for option #3– the oval one with rose gold. I think it is the most beautiful of the three, and the most interesting. 

    Funny thing is, the cushion-cut one seems to go with your finger really well. It’s a strange thing to say, but it looks really nice on you! Nicer than the round one, IMO.

    They’re all lovely, though!

    The third one is my dream ring, so I vote for that one.

    I absolutely LOVE morganite and the images that you posted are beautiful rings, all of them! My personal preference is for the cushion cut.

    That being said, unfortunatley morganite isn’t suitable for daily wear like you would need for an engagement ring 🙁 The facets on morganite will wear really quickly and might even chip which will leave your morganite looking really dull. You’ll need to continually replace the morganite (and the prongs that hold it), which can get quite expensive. The minimum acceptable hardness for daily wear is 9 (sapphire) and morganite is 7.5-8. Maybe a pink morganite (9.5) would give you the same look your after? I’m a jeweler, so if you have any questions feel free to ask! By The Way, any reputable jeweler should tell you this but I just wanted you to know that it’s good advice and they’re not trying to lead you astray.

    The first one looks the most like an engagement ring to me. The second one is so beautiful! But it looks like a cocktail ring to me. I’m not a fan of rose gold, but that one is also nice. Definitely voting for number 1 though.

    A little late in… But please check out lord of gem rings on etsy or ebay. we got this gorgeous e-ring from them. I was a bit dubious about ordering from china, but the ring really is stunning and it seems very solid for £220. If you message them, they will change parts of the ring to your design too. <br style=”box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; max-height: 1000000px;” /><br style=”box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; max-height: 1000000px;” />

    OHLUCYXO:  How durable do you find the Morganite is? I run my own factory (textile manufacturing), do you think it will hold up with daily wear? Your ring is absolutely gorgeous!

    rachelemillie:  this thread is 3 years old so I doubt she’ll answer.

    This Etsy ring is very similar though:

    TCtheBee:  I am normally  obsessed with elongated radiants and cushions. However, due to the size of your hand, and the beauty of the last one (I’d have to say I’m surprised because I’m not normally a split shank girl) but oval all the way. 

    Ps my rhr is morganite.  Zale gave me the scoop tht green Mr clean cleaner heated up is what they use to clean the jewelry, as Morganite tends to get dirty faster, but Zale will clean your ring for free even if you didn’t buy there.
