What To Look For When Buying a Morganite Ring
When shopping for a morganite ring, look for the clarity of the stone. The higher the clarity, the more valuable the pink Morganite ring. Morganite should show lustre in the cut and polish. The cut will also affect value, so be sure to find a high-quality cut, brilliance and brightness. Heat treating or ‘irradiation’, as it is called, is an industry accepted practice and does not diminish the value, but does enhance the rose colour and hardness. However, non-heat treated stones are rare and hence, highly valuable. You can also have a gemology certification to be certain that you are buying a genuine Morganite ring.
