A morganite engagement ring is composed of a beryl gemstone that has a rose color. These contemporary engagement rings are growing in popularity with today’s modern brides. The gem is found in places like California, Madagascar, and Brazil to name a few. Known for its hardness, durability, and wearability, it is no wonder these art nouveau engagement rings are attractive to perspective brides. After selecting this pink hued ring, you need to decide if you want it put in a rose gold or white gold setting and band. Before making your selection, read on to educate yourself about the difference between the two and which metal is going to meet your style needs and complement your morganite engagement ring.
White gold is a mixture of nickel, palladium, and silver and it is usually plated with rhodium to give it a pale and white color. Measured in carats, an 18K ring is most valuable. A benefit of selecting white gold is that it is more affordable than platinum. It is also a versatile piece so that means you can easily wear it with light toned or sparkly jewelry.
White gold is very shiny so it especially complements radiant cut engagement rings with morganite stones. With some simple maintenance to the metal at least every five years, it maintains its brilliant shine and can be cleaned easily if scratched.
Rose gold has become a hot trend and is featured on jewelry like watches, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. It looks most outstanding when featured on Asscher cut diamond engagement rings, and will truly complement a morganite engagement ring. This is due to its pink tone and shine.
Rose gold does not occur naturally in nature but is a blend, like white gold. When copper is mixed into the equation it gives the metal a pink tint. Rose gold boasts a charming vintage appeal, which is extremely popular in the fashion world across clothing, shoes, bags, and accessories-even wedding and bridesmaid dresses.
Choosing between white gold and rose gold for a setting and band to complement a morganiteengagement ring is a personal preference. It depends if you are in search of a classic traditional look, or a modern trendy look. Either way, both choices complement the morganite stone beautifully and will create an overall aesthetic appeal that will surely get you and your ring noticed!
