This week’s featured jewel–a gorgeous pink spinel and diamond ring shared by LtlFirecracker–is pure gem candy. Thanks everyone for sharing your gorgeous jewelry in the Show Me the Bling forum!

Mahenge Spinel and Diamond Ring

Though we have many spinel collectors on Pricescope, the gem is still not widely known to the general public, as it is often overlooked or confused with ruby or pink sapphire. Well, we hope that LtlFirecracker’s ring inspires more people to collect these rare and stunning gems. LtlFirecracker’s spinel is from Tanzania’s Mahenge region, which yielded beautifully saturated pinkish-red stones. And the pink spinel paired with the pavé diamond halo makes for one stunning classic ring. Be sure to visit LtlFirecracker’s post to see more pictures: Mahenge spinel in its new halo setting
