The gem honoring America's greatest banker
The stunning pink jewel that set the gemology world abuzz
First discovered in 1910 on an island off the coast of Madagascar, morganite has fascinated generations of jewelry makers with its beautiful pink-orange coloration. At a meeting of the New York Academy of Sciences the year this stone was discovered, famed gemologist George Frederick Kunz proposed naming this jewel in honor of his friend and customer J.P. Morgan. After all, Morgan, the man renowned as America’s greatest banker, was an avid gem collector who gave many important donations to museums.
In honor of his giving legacy, we’ve asked our finest artisans to handcraft a jewelry collection as opulent and well-regarded as this gem’s namesake. Our Luxuriant Morganite Collection features this stunning pink stone in a 14k rose gold setting surrounded by diamond rounds. It’s our tribute to a man who stabilized America’s economy through several moments of crisis.
