Morganite rings are like ruffles for the fingers (if there is one thing to know about me, it’s that I love ruffles). I’m not married or engaged (and I won’t be any time soon) but morganite rings, especially on a rose gold band, have been on my mind lately.
Over the past couple of years, J. Crew has resurged into fashion popularity – and especially into my wardrobe – for dressing up and quirking out basics. Instead of coloring their wares with khaki, navy, black, or white, they used neons, glitter, and stand out prints. One other way they jazzed up their assortment was with their jewelry – gigantic beaded necklaces, chains full of pearls, and heavy bangles. I credit them with inventing “statement jewelry.” Kudos to you J. Crew – you did a great job – but your time is over! Finite. Dunzo. I used to like their jewelry (past tense) but it looks too “branded” to me – like something I bought at The Gap. I’m now craving jewelry just as statement-worthy but still unique and I think I’ve found that with morganite rings. Peach morganite especially appeals to me because of its color – it’s close to pink but not as frou-frou. I haven’t bought a ring yet but I’m saving my lunch money to buy myself one for Christmas (a gift to myself and from myself. Hell yeh!).
Just a little fun fact – did you know that morganite wasn’t given its name until 1911 when G.F Kunz, a gemologist, suggested the pink beryl (its former name) be promoted to the status of a gemstone and that it be named after J.P. Morgan, a renowned banker and mineral collector?
