A beautiful bright white spinel gemstone of around 3/4 carats flanked by melee accent stones grace this gorgeous 18ct gold Art Deco period engagement ring.
Spinel is a fairly rare and durable gemstone that is nearly as hard as a sapphire or ruby. The name "Spinel" comes from the Greek word for spark and we can quite see why in this ring, these beautifully cut transparent gemstones rival a diamonds brilliance and fire!
The ring is crafted in two-tone 18ct gold, yellow gold for the band with the gemstones all set in white gold so as not to mar the colourless stones with a yellow cast. The principal spinel is claw set in a high crown mount with the lovely accent stones (2 at each side) bead set in sparkling white gold lines running around the shoulders. The spinel's have been tested and verified using a Presidium Gemstone Tester.
With its superb Art Deco styling this ring possesses an undeniable elegance, it would make a beautifully feminine engagement ring or could just become the literal star of your antique ring stack!
