Recently while waiting in line at a local coffee shop someone mentioned the ring I was wearing and that it looked similar to hers. She asked if I knew much about Morganite…and at the time I didn’t, but that was about to change.
If we’re being honest, I just really loved the pink hue and vintage design.
Come to find out Morganite originates from South Africa – Mozambique to be exact, and has become a social media trend with both bride-to-be’s and accessory mavens alike.
What I love about Seattle is going from small talk to a really interesting #caratsandcoffee conversation. And finding a true appreciation for a gem that’s traveled over 10,000 miles and the point of connection between two (new) friends in a coffee shop.
During our conversation, she mentioned reading that Morganite is known as the pink-to-peach sister to the Emerald and has a hardness of 7.5, which makes it more durable than many gemstones…and the reason everyone is obsessed (besides the color!) is the price. A one carat Morganite can start at less than $100! If you’re interested in learning more about Morganite, JTV’s Gemopedia has a ton of information about this gemstone.
I found my two favorite Morganite rings at JTV:
2.21ct Cor De Rosa Morganite™, .32ctw Pink Sapphire & .46ctw White Zircon 10K Rose Gold Ring
68ct Rectangular Cushion Morganite with .09ctw Round Raspberry Rhodite Sterling Silver Ring.
If you’re needing some Mother’s Day inspo or just love a good social media trend, consider a pretty pink Morganite ring paired with a gift card to her favorite coffee shop…those two seem to be a successful combo for me! ♥
