A Custom-Fit | Morganite Engagement Ring

Posted by Hannah Blount on

One of the studio's latest custom pieces was a morganite and diamond engagement ring. The rose gold beauty was for an adorable couple, Tommy and Amanda, who have been long-time fans of the studio. I was so honored to be apart of their story!

Tommy was originally inspired by my Mirage Study #10, and his fiancée Amanda has long loved single-stone rings. Tommy was wonderfully involved with the design process; we waffled between adding rubies or diamonds next to the morganite center but decided on adding white diamonds, which added a touch of contrast to the pink-hued piece.

Morganite is still a relatively uncommon gemstone, and very unique to work with. At 7.5 - 8 on the MOHs scale, morganites are physically akin to aquamarines. The gemstones  blush tone comes from its manganese content, and is also rich in pleochroism – the optical phenomenon of stones possessing different colors at different angles (like tourmaline).
