When putting a jewelry design together, I rarely choose the mounting before I have the stone, but that is precisely how this ring came together. During my visit to the Tucson Gem Show, I stumbled across this interesting mounting, the open, modern design caught my eye. I quickly purchased, and with the mounting now safely tucked in my pocket, I set off to find the perfect stone for the center. After unsuccessfully visiting a few booths, I decided to visit a gemstone broker and friend that I have done business with often over the years. She always carries the best of the best, and her stones always seem to have that extra “pop.” Once again, she came through for me with this lively cushion-cut natural violet-blue spinel. It fits into the mounting like Cinderella’s foot in the glass slipper, a match made in heaven, a Ying to its Yang… alright, alright…I’ll stop. But seriously, I could not wait to get back to the shop and have this beautiful stone set.

Kapow! What a ring. The rich color of the spinel paired with the warm 18 karat yellow gold compliment each other well, but it’s the soft arc of the diamonds that bring this ring together for an elegant, modern look. It’s just a fun ring! 

Never heard of spinel? Here are a few facts about this little-known gemstone…

  • It measures an eight on the Mohs hardness scale (diamond is a ten), so it makes an excellent gemstone to wear in a ring.
  • Spinel is found in a wide range of colors, from deep red to lavender, violet, blue-green, brown, and even black. I consider this particular stone to waiver between blue and violet, depending on the light displayed within. You can view this stone’s range and flashes of colors in this posted video.
  • Spinel has recently been added as a birthstone for those born in August.
  • Spinel is believed to be a stone of revitalization.
