There’s no doubt that in South Africa right now, morganite rings are certainly the flavour of the moment. Big brand retail stores like American Swiss and Browns are promoting morganite on a significant scale and, as the South African economy weakens (again), the consumer-friendly price point of morganite makes it a popular choice for couples who are wanting to get engaged and married.

Morganite is part of the Beryl family of minerals (as are emerald and aquamarine) and it comes in a range of peachy-pink colours. Generally speaking, pink colours are harder to come by and as a result may be slightly more expensive than the more common peachy-salmon type colours. Rose gold is the most popular setting for morganite, as the warm rosy-hues compliment the morganite tones perfectly; but, of course, we can manufacture our morganite engagement rings in white gold, yellow gold or platinum, to suit your taste.

With an extensive range of loose morganite gems in all shapes (rounds, ovals, trillions, cushions, emerald, pear and princess cuts) and sizes, Katannuta Diamonds is well placed to help you design the morganite ring of your dreams. Much of the morganite we supply and the morganite in our ready-to-wear jewellery is mined in Mozambique, so you can be assured that you’re purchasing Proudly African when you invest in morganite with us.
