If you’ve been shopping for engagement rings, you may have already come across morganite.
A semiprecious gemstone that is part of the beryl family, morganite comes in various sweetly-colored pink shades.
In addition to its most popular shade, a light peachy pink, you’ll find orange-pinks, pure pinks, brown-pinks, champagne pinks, and baby pinks.
Like pink sapphire, a carat of morganite will set you back hundreds of dollars — which is a far cry from the thousands you’ll need to spend on a diamond.
Looking for a pink gemstone that is believed to help foster feelings of joy and attract love?
Or maybe you’re after a pink stone that comes in a wide variety of shades, from light to hot pink?
Pink tourmaline may be just what you’re looking for.
A semi-precious pink gem that is revered for its symbolism as much as its versatility, pink tourmaline is a gorgeous choice for any pink stone lover.
One of the many things that make it special is that it reflects the colors of the rainbow. At least, that’s what ancient Egyptians are said to have believed!
Never heard of or seen a pink diamond?
That’s not surprising, given how rare natural pink diamonds are.
Pink diamonds are one of the rarest fancy colored diamonds on earth.
Interestingly, it’s still unclear how they exactly get their stunning pink color. However, what is known is that unlike many other fancy colored diamonds, the pink diamond’s color isn’t derived from chemical impurities.
As you can imagine, the prices of natural pink diamonds aren’t exactly for the fainthearted. As they’re even rarer than white diamonds, they can be around 20 times more expensive.
So, just how pricey are we talking? A single carat can set you back hundreds of thousands of dollars.
It’s no wonder you’ll only see them on the likes of celebs like Lady Gaga. She loves pink diamonds so much she matched her pink diamond engagement ring with pink diamond earrings!
Another beautiful gemstone with a pink color that may catch your eye is pink topaz.
In its natural state, topaz comes in a golden brown to yellow. However, it also comes in a rainbow of color choices, including pink.
Pink topaz is known not only for being the November birthstone but also for its supposed protective properties.
We have featured some of our very favorite gemstones that boast a pink color.
However, there are more types of pink gemstones that you might want to look into.
Some other pink gemstones include pink spinel, kunzite, pink garnet, rhodochrosite, and watermelon tourmaline.
Where can I buy them?
If you wish to buy a raw pink gem, you may be able to find what you’re looking for at a gemstone dealer or a new age/spiritual store.
How about if you want to pick up your very own pink gemstone jewelry piece?
Depending on the type of gemstone that has caught your eye, you will be able to find a selection of jewelry pieces at both high-end and more affordable jewelry stores.
