Morganite is a cool pink stone chosen for its chilled out hues, and it’s easy to pair with various metals while still looking good. It’s a lot of fun for me to work with because of this, and a tension setting is an obvious choice for this stone because it allows the gem to be held above the band and to stand proud of it, so it’s a lot easier to admire its colours without it getting lost or blending in with the setting. The tension set ring is a unique type that places all the pressure on the setting rather than the band, allowing the setting to be the focus of attention, which can be a real benefit for more subtle stones or stones that do best when exposed to a lot of light. Sterling Silver looks great when paired with this gem, and the 9 carat gold accents on this ring’s shoulders work really nicely with its
soft pink hue.
Morganite is a relatively recent addition to the world of gems and was discovered in 1910, but itsnatural rose colour made it an instant success and it gained a close association with love and romance among experts and consumers alike. It is a hard stone that can survive most bangs and scrapes, and is particularly favoured for being placed next to other stones to accentuate their colours. I can produce this ring in half sizes if needed, and I’m particularly proud of the box this ring comes in, which really helps to make a complete package.
