Watermelon ring with spinel & tourmaline in 14K gold-fill
Save $-381.00 USD
This handmade "watermelon" ring features a rare pink spinel from Myanmar and two green tourmaline gemstones set in 14K gold-fill. Gold-fill provides a much thicker layer of gold than gold-plated and should not wear off with proper care.
Spinels are my latest obsession. Never heard of a spinel? You’re not alone. But I bet you’ve heard of rubies, correct? Rubies and spinels used to be thought of as one and the same, until modern gemology uncovered the differences between the two. My obsession with this magical gem stems from its wide range of natural colors, from brilliant pinks and vibrant reds to dusky lavenders and stormy greys. Sometimes referred to as “a connoisseur’s stone” or “the collector’s gemstone”, spinels differ from rubies and sapphires in a few ways. One is that they are almost all untreated. While a majority of rubies and sapphires are colorless and need to be heat-treated to enhance the color, spinels are naturally colorful. They are also rarer than rubies and therefore, are not as widely marketed as their counterparts. While rubies receive most of the hype, I would personally rather have a spinel any day of the week.
