This beautiful vintage gemstone set signet ring is rendered in bright buttery yellow solid 18-carat gold. The ring is carpeted on the front in bright white spinels that sparkle like the finest diamonds. The name "Spinel" actually derives from the Greek word for spark!
Hand-made and super quality this ring is crafted in a striking interpretation of the classic signet ring design. The face is set in colourless spinel gemstones that are open backed and prong set onto a white gold under gallery that is pierced allowing the light through to add to the lovely sparkle. The spinels have been tested and verified using a Presidium Gemstone Tester.
There is no visible hallmark on the ring and we have meticulously acid tested it and verified a purity of 18 to 22-carat gold so possibly South Asian in origin and made of "investment" gold.
A beautiful and distinctive signet ring for either sex, perfect for wear on any finger too!
