The stone in fact has garnered credence as the engagement ring gemstone over the years as it promises making the millennial pink forever for the blushing bride-to-be.
Morganite, in fact, is rarer than the diamond and its demand is surging with everyone buying it but a few people talking about it!
So here we decided to open up about morganite to let the world know its key features which remain unknown.
Firstly, Morganite makes the second most popular non-diamond stone, after sapphire (a 2017 engagement ring survey by the Knot).
Next, it can be carved out to design exquisite jewellery ranging in colours from pale pink to coral hues for it is a member of the much-known beryl family of the stone.
Thirdly, morganites are available at a quite less expensive rates as compared to diamonds on a dollar-per-carat basis. While its single carat costs around $300, diamond in same terms is available at $2,000 or more which is around six times higher.
Fourthly, the stone looks beautiful, dazzling eyes existing like a clear mineral in hexagonal crystals while its other varieties including emerald (green beryl) and aquamarine (light blue beryl) gives further options to jewellers to design pristine jewellery designs.
Fifthly, as said, morganites are rare than diamonds in geological terms, hence, their price emerges from its recent and limited demand.
Due to the popularity of this rare stone, there has been a substantial increase in interest for pink engagement rings as it fits the pocket of even a budget-conscious couple who can afford it and make a show on social media if they want.
The new age woman is drawn to its simple, traditional setting to offset the nontraditional pink stone and can be seen questioning, “Who says an engagement ring needs to have a diamond?
Eventually, the tagline saying “A Diamond Is Forever,” seems to be losing the ground as millennial pink catches trend with Morganite leading the show, winning markets and minds of blushing brides too!
