Story

The natural pink morganite featured in this pendant circa 1920 is exceptionally regal in size. Pear shaped with dimensions of 21.7 by 14 mm, the faceted gem has an estimated weight of 10 carats! Ideal coloration is magnificent with tones of the light pink from the pale interior of the azalea flower to the hotter edges of the pastel color. The gemstone is known for its distinct but medium to paler shades of this delicious tulip pink. In addition, the clarity of the stone is exceedingly fine.

The glorious gem is surrounded by an open lattice of lace-like platinum and a bale set with twenty-five (25) sparkling white diamonds – six (6) old European and nineteen (19) old single cuts – for an estimated total weight of .45 carats (H-I color; VS2-SI2 clarity).

The platinum antique pendant is accompanied by a GIA certificate for the morganite.

Note: Dark coloration in stone is a result of photography only. The gemstone is pure pink throughout.

Historical Notes: First discovered around 1910, morganite was named in honor of J. Pierpont Morgan, the prominent tycoon and industry magnate of banking, steel and railroads in acknowledgement of his philanthropic activities. Morganite is from the same family (beryl) as emeralds and aquamarine but is actually scarcer. Gem quality and larger sized morganite continues to reduce its availability. The only gem of this family even rarer is that of red beryl.
