Laurie Sarah Morganite
With so many brides desiring Colored Gemstone Engagement Rings instead of traditional Diamond Engagement Rings, my husband and I get asked all the time about Morganite. Brides want to know, “Is Morganite Good for my Engagement Ring?” Known as the “Stone of Love”, it’s no surprise that it has become increasingly popular! Here’s some information to help you decide if Morganite is the perfect gem for you!
Commonly referred to as the “Stone of Love”, thus the reason why so many choose it for their Laurie Sarah Engagement Ring. It is also said to represent Purity and Potential.
Originally discovered by George Kunz in 1910 in Madagascar. He named it after his friend and customer J.P. Morgan – thus the name Morganite.
Many hues of Pink, Purplish-Pink, to Orange-Pink, Salmon, and some almost White to Light Tans.
Almost always heat-treated to improve the pink color. Treatment is not detectable, and the resulting color is stable and will not fade.
Beryl – the same mineral that makes up Emerald and Aquamarine
7.5-8 (Sapphires are 9, Diamonds are 10)
Mostly Brazil. Other sources are Madagascar (still considered where some of the best Morganite comes from) Afghanistan, Mozambique, Namibia and the United States
Clean with a baby soft toothbrush and warm soapy water. Rinse thoroughly to remove any soap residue. Lay it with the Morganite face down on a paper towel to dry. Avoid contact with harsh chemicals, hair spray and some lotions. Store in its own space or cloth to avoid scratching against other jewelry.
