Sometimes gemstones are more than they appear at first blush. For this fine spinel, it exhibits a subtle color change in various lights.
In this antique ring of circa 1920, a highly refractive oval spinel holds the color of ultramarine blue. But in LED or fluorescent light, its violet purple hues reveal themselves.
At 1.5 carats, staring at your finger while moving to various light sources will surprise and delight. All in an 18k yellow gold setting, the spinel has a halo of rose cut diamonds. A total of twenty rose cuts ad up to .40 carats, color H-I, clarity VS2-SI2.
A subtle scallop shaped perimeter and marquise shape oriented north and south, the shank is smooth and buttery in 18k.
