Choose Morgan Stone as the main wedding ring stone? You need to understand all of these before making a purchase!

Morgan Stone engagement rings are becoming increasingly popular - and for good reason. Morgan stone is a beautiful, durable, and relatively economical pink gemstone. People's heated discussions have also benefited Morgan Stone greatly.


So, how should everyone choose a Morgan Stone engagement ring?

Morgan stone is a delicate type of beryl, with colors ranging from soft pink to purple pink ("rose"), yellow pink ("peach"), or orange pink ("salmon"). Other minerals belonging to this category include emerald, aquamarine, and other colored beryls.

Its color is caused by trace amounts of manganese. Bright colored Morgan stones are extremely rare, and typically, gemstones must be large enough to present the best color.

According to the Mohs hardness table, the hardness of Morgan stone ranges from 7.5 to 8. Although not as durable as harder gemstones such as diamonds, rubies, or sapphires, this hardness has made Morgan engagement rings suitable for daily wear.


Most of the Morgan stones currently on the market are produced in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Minas Gerais is a gemstone treasure chest: some of the other gemstones produced here include emerald, aquamarine, tourmaline, Alexandrite, amethyst, and topaz.

Afghanistan, Pakistan, Mozambique, Namibia, and the United States are also producers of Morgan stone, but most of them have low production and uneven quality. Although it is no longer the main production area, the ore quality of the original Madagascar mines is still the standard for the best materials.


When choosing a Morgan Stone engagement ring, remember the following points to select the perfect gemstone:

Color: The most precious Morgan stone is a deep pink color, usually the result of heat treatment. Untreated materials, especially those produced in Brazil, may have a salmon like orange pink color. The color of Morgan stone is usually lighter, but the color will deepen as the size of the gemstone increases. Dark colors are usually more ideal and therefore more expensive.

Almost all Morgan stones have undergone heat treatment to improve their pink color. The high temperature eliminates the yellow or orange tones, leaving behind a purer and more attractive pink color. Heat treatment cannot detect it, and the color after treatment is stable and will not fade, unless exposed to high temperatures above 400 degrees Celsius.

Clarity: Faced Morgan stones often do not contain visible inclusions to the naked eye, although these inclusions are more likely to appear in larger Morgan stones. Gemstones containing many visible contents are usually carved or cut into convex surfaces.


The contents of the liquid (which are enclosed in the original voids of the gemstone) and cracks are two types of visible internal features to the naked eye. The shape of liquid contents is often irregular. The crack looks like a bright, sparkling flat surface. It is worth mentioning that faceted Morgan stones usually do not have visible inclusions to the naked eye.

Cutting: The shape of Morgan stone has the least impact on its beauty. Like diamonds, Morgan Stone engagement rings can be cut in circular bright, emerald, horseeye, or oval shapes to attract buyers. Light colored materials may retain a larger depth during cutting and grinding to enhance their color. Morgan stone is a popular material for creating unique illusion style cutting and carving.

Carat weight: Although there are (and affordable) large-sized Morgan stones, Morgan stones are usually cut and ground into standardized sizes to fit regular sized jewelry sets.


Now that you know the precautions for choosing a beautiful Morgan stone, you may also want to add some changes to the ring. Morgan stone and diamonds form an elegant combination. The sparkling light of diamonds contrasts sharply with the subtle pink luster of Morgan stone. Setting diamonds as halos or using them as secondary stones to complement Morgan stones on both sides is a foolproof choice. When choosing a diamond for a Morgan Stone engagement ring, there are several things to pay attention to:

Diamonds may reflect the pink luster of Morgan stone, so they may appear slightly pink.

Yellow toned diamonds may complement Morgan stones, creating a softer effect.

A lighter colored diamond will contrast with Morgan stone, creating a more dazzling effect.

Morgan Stone is suitable for almost all popular engagement ring styles. It is also eye-catching enough to use a single stone design. The use of halo (a circle of smaller diamonds surrounding the main stone) design will appear dazzling. The use of the inlay method (a type of inlay pattern where fine metal bands are used to surround and secure gemstones) can cleverly wrap and protect the main stone.

Due to the Mohs hardness of Morgan stone ranging from 7.5 to 8, it is more prone to cracking and damage than harder gemstones such as diamonds. Therefore, inlay is an excellent choice, as the metal surrounding Morgan stone can protect the gemstone from damage. Four claw and six claw inlays are also common, but they provide less protection and are not an ideal choice for people with more physical activity.


If you are looking for engagement ring inlay patterns that complement Morgan Stone, you can consider the metallic color and desired overall appearance. If you want the overall color to be softer, rose gold rings and claws can deepen the pink tone of the gemstone, while gold can highlight the yellow tone of the gemstone. Alternatively, you can choose to boldly try using white metal claws or rings (or both in white) to contrast with Morgan stone.
