When we were contacted by our customer recently to create her engagement ring we had no idea how popular the ring would prove to be with our followers.
Morganite engagement rings have been very popular for a while (read our “Ultimate Guide to Morganite“) and this beautiful engagement ring with its delicate pink centre stone looks like they will continue to be popular over the coming years.
The band was created in 18ct white gold with a 1.52ct centre stone. The morganite was surrounded by 16 small round brilliant diamonds (total diamond weigh 0.25ct) in a halo setting. Once delivered to the customer the ring was then on its way to Zanzibar for the proposal.
One of the things we absolutely love is hearing from our customers and it’s never better than hearing the story of how a couple became engaged using one of our engagement rings.
We were originally contacted in March 2015 by Chris who was looking for a beautiful engagement ring for his girlfriend Michelle.
We quickly established that the centre stone would be morganite and from there we worked together to decide that the ring would include diamonds on a scalloped band and the metal would be rose gold (rose gold works beautifully with morganite).
What are your thoughts on heart shaped jewellery?
Lady Gaga started a trend last year when she debuted her huge heart shaped diamond engagement ring on her Instagram account. Since then various imitations have popped up we think a lot of them can end up looking… well… a bit naff.
Heart shaped jewellery, when done properly, can be one of the most beautiful and romantic pieces of jewellery.
Morganite and Diamond engagement rings
It’s no secret that engagement rings are our passion at Exclusivity by Design and it’s always such a honour to be asked to create such a special piece of jewellery for someone.
We have worked with two lovely couples lately on these beautiful morganite and diamond engagement rings and although they are very different in design from each other it is very difficult to pick a favourite!
The Complete Guide to Morganite
Morganite jewellery (and engagement rings in particular) is currently experiencing a wave of popularity in South Africa and further afield. People are starting to look for alternatives to Diamonds and Morganite, with its beautiful pink and peach hues, can be a wonderful choice.
The beautiful Morganite stone is often overlooked by the ever popular diamond for engagement rings but this gemstone, often referred to as the pink emerald, can be a beautiful choice.
The first morganite to be described was in 1911, after it was found in California alongside a tourmaline, in a deposit rich in kunzite and other gemstones. Before this point it was known simply as a pink beryl.
