Live life as the Parisians do - with rose coloured glasses. And what better way to see life in rose tones than with something from our La Vie En Rose Morganite collection. While the collection may be named after the famous Edith Piaf song, the stone is far from a tragic love story. With its blushing, champagne pink colour, it’s difficult not to fall in love with this natural gemstone and there is little wonder why Morganite is fast becoming a hot trend in jewellery and on red carpets around the world. Blake Lively, Kate Middleton, Patricia Arquette and Big Bang Theory’s Mayim Bialik, just to name a few, have been seen sporting this pretty-in-pink jewel on red carpets around the world.

Perfectly complemented with rose gold and white diamonds, Morganite definitely has an air of Parisian romance. Its soft colours are anything but dull, brightening up even the greyest of days, radiating a “joie de vivre” or joy of life. Often designed in rose gold to further enhance its blushing tones, the stone is also perfectly matched with white toned metals, giving the designs a lovely contrast of colours. 


A member of the Beryl family of natural gemstones, this pretty jewel is in good company with Aquamarine and Emerald which are in the same family.
Morganite is also favoured for its sweet symbolism and holistic properties; they are said to attract love, making love grow and to help encourage loving thoughts, actions and a joy for life. Given the symbolism attached to this cheerful stone, Morganite is a perfect choice as an alternative engagement ring to the traditional white diamond. With a MOH’s rating (a hardness) of between 7.5 – 8 , the ring is tough enough for everyday wear and unlike a bold coloured sapphire or emerald which might warrant a bit of colour coordination with your outfit, Morganite is neutral enough to suit any outfit, style or season.
