The Palest Pink Stone - Morganite

The strand of Morganite briolettes that I purchased in Tucson was a real splurge for me. But I figured I would only use them one at a time, thereby making any finished necklace quite affordable. What I didn't count on, was how very difficult it would be to photograph the stone!

Morganite is such a pale pink that it fades on a white background and provides a bit too much contrast on the black background you see here. I spent a loooong time photographing this necklace and finally had to stop and "call it good enough".

I paired the Morganite with a small garnet and suspended them both from an oxidized sterling silver chain.

It is available in my etsy shop. You can click on the photo to go directly to the listing.

I love morganite. I have a strand of gem grade rondelles that just sparkle like diamonds...they are tiny though.

Perfect pairing there.
