    Holy smokes, this is stunning! :love: Your spinel is such a gorgeous, intense red. Like wow! And that setting is the perfect match. I love the slightly graduated halo. :kiss2:

    Thank you Voce, Acinom Scouty, Luvall and Elle, and TL!
    Elle your post made me laugh so much! That is how I feel about it! I could not formulate words properly in my message to Sally. I actually wrote
    supercalifragilisticexpialidocious from Mary Poppins in my first line because I could not find words!
    I love the graduated halo too! We went back and forth with design ideas for so long! She is amazing to work with.

    Beautiful! I love that color and the pear shape only accentuates it!
    Its like a delicious drop of juice from some sort of red-pink fruit!

    Beautiful spinel and ring, ilovegemstones :) HOW is on my Etsy favorites list, but I've never bought from them. Seeing your sweet ring really makes me want to rectify that situation!

    It’s an object d’art. Beautiful gem in a beautiful hand forged setting. Every details is dreamy.

    Of course we need more and more pictures

    These days I think my iPhone camera is conspiring against me. Can’t seem to capture any of my gemstones recently. Hopefully y will have more success capturing this beauty

    Thanks Susanne! I love that too! I am happy to be on the other end of it this time!

    Thanks so much for your post Sungura! I feel the same way about it! I will try to get better pics!

    Yes Leslie, go for it! I have never worked with someone more accommodating and with such expertise as Sally.

    Thanks Lilmosun! I envisioned something like this so long ago. I am so happy it is finally on my finger!

    This ring is looking particularly glowy and red today. It glows strongly in UV light too! I need to clean it - lots of hand washing with it on in the last few days.

    Ha ha me too Distracts! Ever since I saw Chrono's I knew I wanted one like that.
    Lisa I love your Mahenges too! This ring checks all of the boxes for me!
    Thanks for coming and posting here Arkteia! The colour has deeply satisfied my craving for a red stone. I don't need to look at rubies now - bonus!
    Thank you so much Arcadian, Atwater and Icyjade!!!
