Historically, forms of pears (drops) and ovals are the most common for faceted morganites. Morganites are perfectly collected in pairs and sets of large, over 10 carats, stones, which allows you to create unique sets of jewelry. Not every gem can allow jewelers not to limit imagination with the size of a stone. If the budget allows, almost any girl can choose morganite for a full set of ring / pendant / earrings that will suit her color type, based on her appearance. We consider morganites in the artworks of famous jewelry brands in this article (link).
Cushion, both square and rectangular, is the less common shape of cutting. It is visually more stable, since it is based on a quadrangle, that is especially good suit for a man.
Much less often morganites are faceted in step forms (octagon, baguette, asscher), radiant, heart, and briolets. There is practically no round cut, except for small, up to 5 carats, stones. Fancy cut for morganite is a rarity.
Choosing a stone, pay attention to the visual perception of a faceted stone, its play of light on facets, luster, that better unfolds in dynamics. Put the selected item on your hand, see how the color of the stone is combined with the color of your skin, if you choose for yourself. Gently move your hand, as in our videos, under diffuse daylight (not solar) and artificial lighting, you can see how the stone will look in jewelry. Try to choose a daytime to look on the stone when you can bring morganite to the window. At the same time, make sure that there are no bright or dark objects (including floors, walls) near you that can be reflected in the stone and distort the perception of color and cut.
Pay attention to whether there is a large “window” in the stone that can worsen play of light on facets. In pairs (matched stones) different sizes of stone tables are acceptable, and a slight difference in color, after all, morganite is a rare gem, but such differences should be really insignificant.
If a stone looks fade, does not play, this can indicate low quality of polishing, in which part of the light is scattered upon “entry” into a stone and less reflected from facets of a pavilion.
