Morganite was first discovered in 1910 in Madagascar and was named in honor of the American financier and gem enthusiast J.P. Morgan.

Until recently, it was relatively rare to find morganite in jewelry stores, but since 2010 it has grown substantially in popularity and can be found in most jewelry stores.

Morganite has become especially popular as an alternative to diamond engagement rings and looks stunning in rose gold settings or set alongside diamond accents. Only moissanite and sapphire are more popular diamond engagement ring alternatives.

Morganite is part of the beryl family, along with aquamarine and emerald. Unlike emeralds, the gemstone is mostly free of inclusions, making it more appealing to the eye (emeralds are typically heavily included).

It is most known as a pastel-colored gemstone and features soft hues of pink, purple-ish pink, and orangy pink, with pink and rose tints being the most popular and fashionable.

Morganite measures a 7.5 - 8.0 on the Mohs Hardness scale, making it an ideal gemstone in all settings. It looks stunning set as rings, earrings, pendants, and bracelets.
