Q:

Can you wear morganite in water?

Hi everyone,

I recently received a beautiful morganite necklace as a gift, and I'm wondering if it's safe to wear it in water. I love to swim, and I don't want to take the necklace off every time I go in the pool or the ocean, but I also don't want to damage the stone.

Does anyone have experience wearing morganite in water, or know if it's safe? I've tried googling it, but I'm getting conflicting answers. Some sources say it's fine, while others say you should never submerge morganite in water.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Hello,

I have a morganite engagement ring that I have been wearing for over a year now, and I absolutely love it. I have worn it in water a few times, and at first, I was worried about any damage it could get.

However, my jeweler advised me that the safest way to wear it in water is by ensuring that the stone remains in contact with clean water. In other words, if you're going swimming, the ring will be less prone to any damage if worn in freshwater than in chlorinated water, as the latter can cause corrosion.

Alternatively, if you're looking for a way to protect your morganite jewelry in water completely, then I suggest taking it off and leaving it in a safe place before getting into the water.

As with any jewelry, it's always best to take precautions to avoid any damage or loss, and the same goes for morganite. Wear it in water with caution and care, and enjoy its beauty for years to come!

Hi there,

I've worn my morganite ring in water several times and haven't had any issues with it so far. I've worn it while swimming and even in the shower occasionally. However, I do make sure to dry it off thoroughly after coming out of the water to prevent any water spots or damage.

That being said, I think it ultimately depends on the quality of the morganite and how it's been treated. Some lesser quality stones might be more prone to damage when exposed to water, so it's best to err on the side of caution if you're unsure.

If you're really worried about it, you could always ask the jeweler who made the necklace for their input, as they should know the specific properties of the stone they used.

Hope that helps!

Hi everyone,

I have a pair of morganite stud earrings that I purchased a few years ago. I've worn them numerous times in all types of conditions, including in water, and thankfully, they both still look fantastic.

When it comes to wearing morganite in water, I think the most important factor is the quality of the stone. High-quality morganite stones are robust and can withstand water exposure without discoloring or fading.

However, even if your morganite is of high quality, it's best to err on the side of caution if you plan to wear it in water. Avoid exposing it to harsh chemicals, and never use any abrasive materials when cleaning the stone.

In conclusion, wearing morganite in water can be safe, depending on factors like the quality of the stone and the conditions in which it will be worn. But as with all jewelry, it's better to be safe than sorry, so take care of your morganite, and it will serve you well for many years to come.

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased a morganite bracelet, and while wearing it, I happened to go swimming in a chlorinated pool. After getting out, I noticed that the morganite looked foggy, and it lost its sparkle.

I was worried that I might have caused irreversible damage to the stone, but a jeweler assured me that it was likely just a buildup of chemicals from the pool water that made it appear this way. They suggested I clean it with soap and water and dry it off properly.

After cleaning the bracelet, the morganite looked as good as new. Since then, I've been more careful to take off my morganite jewelry before going swimming, especially in pools with chlorine.

From my experience, it just goes to show that morganite, like any stone, needs proper care and attention. If you're planning to wear morganite jewelry in water, take precautions to protect it from damage and clean it immediately after exposure to water.

I hope my experience helps anyone considering wearing their morganite jewelry in water. Stay safe and enjoy the beauty of this lovely stone!

Greetings,

I want to share my experience wearing a morganite pendant in water. I had the necklace on while taking a shower and did not experience any issues. However, I noticed a slight change in color and clarity after some time, and the sparkle didn't look as brilliant as it used to.

I concluded that it's possible to wear morganite in water, but it would help if you were careful about how long the stone gets soaked or submerged. Furthermore, you should clean and dry it thoroughly after using it in water to prevent any buildup of minerals or dirt.

In general, I believe it's better to take off the morganite jewelry before swimming, especially if you go into the ocean or a pool regularly. By doing that, you prevent any accidental impacts with hard surfaces, avoid any chemical exposure, and keep the stone looking gorgeous for an extended time.

Hope my experience helps you make an informed decision about wearing your morganite jewelry in water.

Hello everyone,

I was once in the same dilemma when I got my morganite earrings. I love to swim and wanted to wear them to the pool, but I was worried about the stone's safety. After some research, I discovered that morganite is a fairly durable stone and can withstand exposure to water to some extent.

However, I still decided not to wear my earrings in the water as a precaution. I did not want to risk any damage to the stone or the metal. Instead, I opted to wear a different pair of earrings when going swimming, to avoid any unnecessary troubles.

In conclusion, while morganite is durable enough to withstand water, it's still best to be cautious to avoid any possible damage. So, if you're just like me, the surest bet would be to leave your morganite jewelry off when going for a dip.

Hey there,

I have a morganite necklace that I have worn in water a few times, without any problems so far. However, I do notice that after some time, the stone seems to become dull and less shiny.

To prevent any damage or loss of shine, what I do now is to make sure that I don't wear the necklace for an extended time in the water. I usually take it off immediately after swimming and then rinse it with clean water and wipe it dry with a soft cloth.

I would also advise that you avoid using harsh chemicals or soap on the stone, as this could affect its color and make it appear foggy. Instead, clean it using a soft toothbrush and mild soap, and ensure that you dry it off immediately after cleaning.

Overall, be careful with your morganite jewelry when it comes to water exposure, and take the necessary precautions to protect it from any damage.

Hello all,

I've been wearing my morganite engagement ring for almost two years now, and I've never had an issue with water exposure. I've washed dishes, taken showers, and even gone for a swim with the ring on.

From what I've learned, the key to preventing any damage to morganite while in water is to ensure that the ring metal is of good quality. Low-quality ring metal can react with water and cause corrosion, leading to discoloration or even damage to the morganite stone.

So, if you're planning to wear your morganite in water, make sure to check the quality of the ring, avoid harsh chemicals, and regularly clean the stone to prevent any mineral buildup.

Finally, always check with the manufacturer or seller of your piece for specific care and maintenance advice, as it may differ depending on the type of morganite jewelry you have.

I hope my experience helps, and don't be afraid to enjoy your beautiful morganite jewelry wherever you go!
