Morganite is a member of the Beryl family. Other beryls are Emerald and Aquamarine. Morganites come in pink colors from a pale pink to peach and salmon. It is less brittle than Emerald, making it a desirable gem for special occasion wear.

Morganite was first discovered in California in the early 20th century and later on also in Madagascar. Though there are also small deposits in Brazil, Mozambique, Namibia, Afghanistan, and Russia. But quality morganite remains relatively rare.

Morganite grades:

Like most colored gemstones morganites are graded on a letter scale.


B        Light pink color; included; good cut

A        Medium to light pink color; slightly included; good cut

AA      Light to medium light pink; eye clean; good cut

AAA    Medium to dark pink color; eye clean; good cut

Morganites soft pink colors range from peach, peachy-pink, pink, and violet pink, as well as a pretty salmon color. The more saturated the color, the more valuable the gem is. The gentle pink hue of Morganite is due to traces of manganese. Like almost any colored gemstone, morganite is valued first and primarily on the intensity and saturation of its color, followed by size and clarity.



Morganite is rated “good” for everyday wear. Avoid exposure to heat, contact with chemicals, and protect from scratches and harsh blows. To clean, gently scrub with a soft toothbrush and a solution of mild dish soap and warm water. Avoid cleaning in ultrasonic or with a steamer as the gem can not tolerate heat and abrupt temperature changes.

Poor - should never be heated


Morganites have a hardness of 7.5 to 8. They are fairly scratch resistant, but will abrade over time if worn every day in an engagement or wedding ring. They may need to be repolished or recut after years of wear.

Most morganites have been heated to improve their color, mainly to remove yellow or orange tones. Heating is a permanent enhancement, as lasting as the gemstone itself. Heated morganites can be re-cut and re-polished if needed without affecting it's color hue.

Beautiful ring

The ring looks even better than I thought. My fiancee loves it so much. Easy experience from choosing the ring to it arriving at my house.

Love it!

Ordered a 5mm hammered band with scattered moissanite,, and it is just gorgeous. Kostanze was so wonderful to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to custom order through nodeform again. The only hitch is that I live in Canada and had to pay additional duties and taxes when the ring arrived. Other than that... Love it!

Beautiful and looks exactly as expected

perfect fit, perfect ring, Fiancé loved it and said yes :)


I bought the Velda ring in rose gold with alexandrite stones and couldn’t be happier! Konstanze helped me determine how it might look as a shadow band with my engagement ring (pictured). It looks better than I even imagined and I am so thrilled! Konstanze was great at keeping in touch, answering questions, and it didn’t hurt that it came so nicely gift wrapped. My husband and I did all our wedding jewelry in-person at our local store (pre-pandemic) and I didn’t know what to expect with an online experience, but it was very personal and turned out perfectly. Thank you!
