I've been doing lots of multiple stone rings lately in order to save the expense of setting a single stone at a time, and with multiple stones, I feel the need for diamond melee isn't as necessary. This is a medium light toned violet spinel with a small window, but I love the more pastel spinels. It is flanked by two chrysoberyl trillions around 1.1 carats each. These chrysoberyls are more on the greenish side than yellow. I posed it with my other three stone ring to show the tonality differences. The other spinel is more of a medium tone, but very similar hue. Hopefully the color isn't washed out upon uploading, as I really did try to make the file sizes much smaller.

The setting is in 14K rose gold by lanbo. It was a modification. I was a bit disappointed that he didn't use chevron prongs as in the original model I gave him to design it from. However, in retrospect, I'm glad there's less metal coveing the trillions. I have a new jeweler that charges half of what my recently ditched jeweler charges to set stones. Therefore, I'm very happy. He was very good about checking the stones with a loupe prior to setting, and asking about the hardness. He also set a tourmaline for me and I'm pretty happy with that as well.

Here's a small montage of all my multi-stone rings I've put together recently. All the spinel rings are all modified lanbo settings. The pear bypass spess/tsavorite ring is Daniel M.

What an amazing color combination! Who needs Easter eggs when we can have something like that--the essence of Spring!

Good that you are using so many multi-color combinations, TL. I love blue and green of chrysoberyl, planned to use a similar combo myself, and of course you can never lose with blue, violet and pink!

Re: 3 carat spinel flanked by two yellowish green chrysobery

Thank you all so much for the kind words on my new ring and the others.

Here's a sneak peak at my new almost four carat cushion color change spinel. It is going into an 8x8 white gold LOGR legacy with upgraded diamonds that I had a spessartite in. The spessartite was more like a modified asscher, and not really suitable for the setting. The LOGR is one of the most beautiful LOGR's I own, so I'm glad I finally found a stone for it after almost two years of looking. It's really hard to find saturated cushions this size for some reason. I obviously have a violet/blue spinel addiction and I need to get medical treatment. :errrr: :wacko: I actually even prefer these to Mahenge spinels. You can see the amazing luster and sparkle in the bottom. I wish I could still capture it better in a still photo. It is medium tone.

Re: 3 carat spinel flanked by two yellowish green chrysobery

Here's another sneak peak at a more purple spinel I own around 2 carats flanked by two yellowish chrysoberyls around 80 points each. This stone has very little grey and flashes laserbeams of pink and blue. I wish I could capture the amazing dispersion in a photo. So, I have lots of projects, and like someone said, "I'm a machine." I feel you only live once, and I need to enjoy these gems while I'm still alive to do so, and that means they need to be set asap. Photo taken in dim cloudy daylight.

Medium tone.

This really works well! I love how adventurous and no nonsense you are and how beautifully it works out! It's probably because of your keen eye for color.

Have you played around with those chrysoberyls to see if they color shift at all? I think some of those greener ones do.

I am a big fan of multi-color rings. I fell in love with them while browsing the jewelry section on 1st Dibs. They have a fun, festive look to them.

All of your combos look lovely together. I especially like the sneak-peak layout!

Re: 3 carat spinel flanked by two yellowish green chrysobery

ohhh..I like those a lot! Well done one them. I am very much enjoying the multiple stone rings, TL. They are so much more fun and interesting than a one stone flanked or surrounded with boring diamonds. Good color match and setup! :))
I assume you are buying the stones as pairs and not matching the(the flanking stones)?

Re: 3 carat spinel flanked by two yellowish green chrysobery

Wow, you’ve certainly been busy and into spinels and chrysoberyls lately. The cool combination of yellowish green and blue is another departure from your usual but still a good combination. I have to say I still prefer hot pink and blue though. The new spinel is a lot bluer than the other blue spinels you have. Is it PS, my monitor or are your stones looking just a touch silky?

Re: 3 carat spinel flanked by two yellowish green chrysobery

I like the colour combination but wish I could see this one because I can't imagine how the Chryso's perform in relation to the spinel - what does your eye get drawn to? That's the problem with photos, you can't see the performance and I can only imagine the sparkle you get off this ring.

All of your rings are very eye-catching but there's still something about the blue/pink combo that attracts me more than others. Do you have a favourite yet?

Amguy, some I have bought as pairs, and some I found one by one through patience and a keen eye for obtaining pairs. For example, the two pear mahenge spinels on the large oval violet spinel, I bought separately. I also bought the trillion and pear chrysoberyls separately. I think the only ones I bought as pairs were my round chrysoberyls I posted in another thread.

Actually they're not silky at all. It's my camera doing that. Sorry!! They all sparkle like mad too, and have dispersion, which I can't capture on these photos. ;(

I think the chrysoberyls are just as eye catching as the spinel. They glow very neon green, which I couldn't capture as well with my camera unfortunately. I have so many spinel rings, I can't decide on a favorite. LOL!

Re: 3 carat spinel flanked by two yellowish green chrysobery

Thank you all so much for the kind words on my new ring, and the others. I really appreciate it, and Velouria, sorry, forgot to answer your question about the color change of the chrysoberyls. They actually don't shift in color much, not that I've noticed, maybe a little bit. My larger 3 carat cushion chrysoberyl is more of a color shifter. The four carat cushion is at the jewelers being set in my LOGR legacy, and I'm so excited, I can't stand it. That might be my new favorite. The color on that stone is too beautiful for words. It is remarkable under any lighting, even my crappy dim office fluorescents. I can't wait to post photos.
