Morganite vs Moissanite

Lately, I’ve noticed customers mixing up the words moissanite and morganite. The other day I was talking with a client who said she wanted a moissanite ring. We discussed moissanite rings for a bit and after I sent her an email with some recently purchased moissanite engagement rings, she realized what she really wanted is actually a morganite ring!  🙂 I know the two words sound fairly similar, but believe me, they are totally different in real life! Let's explore the difference between morganite and moissanite.

Morganite is a peachy pink variety of the mineral beryl. Other well known varieties of beryl include aquamarine and emerald. Morganite can make lovely engagement rings and are much more affordable compared to diamonds. Here at deBebians, we have a gorgeous selection of morganite jewelry including engagement rings, earrings, pendants and more. We even have a section on our site that features loose gemstones from which you can choose. You can select a loose morganite that you can set into pretty much any of our engagement ring settings. If you are looking for a special shape, size or color morganite, we can try to source it for you.

Moissanite is a rare mineral discovered by the French chemist Henri Moissan in 1893. After believing initially that what he discovered was diamond, he later identified the mineral he discovered as silicon carbide. Today, lab grown moissanite is used throughout the jewelry industry. Here at deBebians, we carry moissanite by Charles & Colvard and The Harro Gem. Currently we sell Forever One moissanite by Charles & Colvard. You can choose from a large selection of loose moissanite on our site that can be set into our diamond engagement ring settings. We also have a great selection of Forever One moissanite jewelry that includes eternity rings, 5 stone rings, earrings, necklaces, and more.

Because of the popularity and demand for quality moissanite as a diamond alternative to engagement rings, our GIA Graduate Gemologists helped launch our own line of custom moissanite - Kori Moissanite. We offer all of the standard cuts, sizes and ratios, however we can also custom cut our Kori Moissanite in any shape, size or ratio that you would like.

It’s easy to get certain terms mixed up, but knowing the difference between morganite and moissanite is important. Yes, the words sound sort of similar, but look completely different. Luckily we carry both morganite and moissanite so even if you do get them confused, we’ve got you covered!
