Another one of my "ering collection"

This one's vendor photos from Daniel M have been posted, but I never managed to get good pics myself. I figured that I'd try today since we have unusual weather conditions (cloudy!) and the bright sun doesn't seem to make this shy spinel come out of it's shell. My pics from today are better but don't really do it justice. I've had people think it's a blue-lavender diamond before.

Gemcal said: "Cute silver blue Spinel, 2.03 cts"

I don't remember the measurements, and I don't think I wrote them down anywhere. Eh well.

Silver setting from Daniel M. Sholdt inspired. Size six.

Pics!

Vendor pic from Gemcal. I figured all that darkness was camera reflection. I was right!

:appl: I love it Freke! I wouldn't have guessed how pretty the spinel is from Gemcal's pic-I like the color a lot.

I saw such a color once at an Intergem show. It is amazing. It looks steely-grey with a tad of blue, like ladies' dresses in the time of Louis XIV. Congratulations, good luck with such a find and enjoy your ring!

Freke! What a beauty... I love the color and the setting. How many E-rings are you up to now? hehe Never enough in my opinion. How do you make the background of your pics fuzzy like that? It's awesome.

Wow... what a beautiful stone. And I love the setting... I love how it sets off the spinel in its simplicity.

Thanks everyone! I just happened to be browsing Gemcal and saw this stone...I'm such a sucker for light blues/lavenders!

These are some pics I took a while back of it...found them last night. I need to organize my photos better...I had forgotten these existed!

ETA: See what I mean about not being photogenic?

I love your ring! I am about to replace my diamond in my wedding ring with a spinel.
