Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink

Written by Chloe Drake on 4 September 2017

Pink is everywhere you look in fashion at the moment, and the colour is increasingly popular in jewellery. If a bold pink sapphire isn’t your colour why not look at the option of a more subdued but very beautiful soft pink morganite, a stone that is becoming more and more popular for engagement rings. As the trend for vintage inspired engagement rings continues, blush coloured gemstones are gaining popularity too as the two styles go hand in hand to create stunning rings.  Quite a few of my recent customers have really taken an interest in the idea of a morganite engagement ring as their partners love the subtle pink colour and the idea of a pretty vintage style ring.

Morganite is available in a few different hues of pink . Stronger hues of pink, like in the ring below tend to be the most expensive;

However, there are some really beautiful blush coloured tones that look stunning when combined with rose gold such as this example;

Pink also works really well in engagement ring designs when it is combined with diamonds and rose gold like the ring below;

If you’re considering a morganite engagement ring then perhaps you would like to know a little more about this beautiful stone... morganite is a pink beryl gemstone, the beryl family of gemstones also includes aquamarine and emerald.  The largest deposits of morganite are found in Brazil and Madagascar, but it can also be found in China, Madagascar, Afghanistan, Russia, Mozambique, Nambia, Zimbabwe and in the USA. It is 7.5 – 8 on the Moh scale of hardness and is durable enough for everyday wear so can be used in an engagement ring, although like any gemstone set ring it is worth taking it off if you are doing anything hands on.
