Morganite, also known as "pink emerald", is a highly valued variety of beryl. It was discovered on the coast of Madagascar in 1910. It was named after the famous financier J. P. Morgan, who was a banker and collector of minerals.
The subtle color of morganite is due to trace amounts of manganese. In this stone, a unique optical phenomenon called plechroism takes place. It involves a change of color from pink-yellow to pink-blue, depending on the angle of incidence of light.
I have been thinking for a long time about making unique jewelry with this stone. I was very happy when Mrs. Ewelina contacted me about making a ring with large morganite. I wanted the stone for this project to come from Madagascar, where the most valuable specimens of this mineral come from.
After extensive research, I found a supplier who had a stone of the right quality. Morganite had a weight of 8.50 ct, a beautiful pink color and high purity. I designed a floral composition for it in the form of stylized ginkgo leaves. So that the ring does not twist on the finger, inside the ring I designed folding butterflies that fit more closely to the finger. The whole is made of rose 585 gold.
