220G

Following the discovery of a new locality for rose beryl in Madagascar in 1910, George Kunz proposed the name ‘morganite’ at a meeting of the New York Academy of Sciences to honour his friend and customer J.P. Morgan for his financial support for the arts and sciences, and his important gifts of gems to the American Museum of Natural History in New York and to the Museum of Natural History in Paris. Morgan was one of the most important gem collectors in the early 1900s. This 15ct gold ring is set with this pretty stone and framed with four small rose diamonds.
