The pale peach-pink color, clarity and durability of this round faceted morganite make it an ideal complement to a wide variety of jewelry styles. The color of the stone pairs well with both white metals and rose gold; set it alone in a simple setting, in pairs or clusters of morganite or in combination with gemstones in complementary colors.
Morganite, a member of the beryl family, owes its color to the presence of manganese (or cesium) in the stone. The color of the stones may range from rose pink to purplish-pink to peach—even to an orange-pink. Morganite gemstones tend to be free of inclusions and very clear.
