I jumped on the grey spinel train quite some time ago. I once compared one I have to the grey diamond of another PSer, and honestly couldn't see the difference, though it could have been the lighting. I like them as light as possible, ideally precision cut, but they usually come fairly small (for me). I checked out an oval of Julia B's a while ago and hemmed and hawed because I had other stuff on the go and it was a fat oval (very well cut but not "precision"). Not my favourite shape, but really should have kept it! This one came up from a different vendor, similar cut, but over a carat bigger and the prices have really gone up! Still had to go for it. It's about 3.85 cts, 11x9 or so. I know I'm crazy, but I'll be haloing it.
