Spinel is a beautiful natural gemstone which, for centuries, was confused with ruby. Spinel is gaining popularity in its own right for its beauty and durability. A deep orangey red round Spinel center stone is surrounded by a ring of sparkling diamonds. This ring’s design also features crescent-shaped cutouts which allows light in to illuminate the Spinel's grandeur and highlight its brilliant hue. The design is sure to make a bold, yet beautiful statement.
GORDON'S DESIGN NOTES
"When I came across the lovely red with a hint of orange spinel stone, I was struck by its simple beauty and had to have it. After discussing design options with my wife, Anne, we decided it would best be made into a ring where it could be showcased in an uncomplicated, yet rich yellow gold setting. Its clean, majestic design makes it an excellent choice for everyday wear, but which can also hold its own in more formal settings."
