Hi there, thinking about having a CS piece for my wife, and feel that going for LG sounds like a good idea after some brief research on PS and IG. It's not that costly, and hopefully get the desired color and size easier.
I am still in the very initial stage of the plan and wish to have some advices here.

I am now leaning towards sapphire or spinel, and have not yet decide on the color as there're plenty beautiful ones. However, my first question would be about stone durability. While sapphire is generally with hardness of 9 on Mohs and spinel only 8, is spinel still durable enough for daily wear?
