    Here are pics of my new DK spinel ring as promised. :) I think the ring came out beautiful. The one thing I noticed is that I see more grey in the stone than I did before. This is not a problem, but when I viewed the stone on the back of my hand and in a stone holder that was not so high up- the grey was less evident. But all in all- I am happy and it fits with the band very nicely.

    That is beautiful! It’s a gorgeous color. It looks like a great size too. What is the carat weight?

    Awesome! From the first handshot outside, my first guess would've been zircon - that's indeed how blue it looks.

    That's a monster gorgeous spinel! I see a bit of color shift. That's why I love spinels, you get two stones in one. Super ring!

    It’s beautiful and I just love the size! I personally don’t see much grey, the spinel looks like a nice saturated London Blue to me.

    Gorgeous spinel and looks amazing on your hand...and I love your polish color. Sophisticated and edgy and perfect with your new spinel ring.:love:
    And I see what you mean about a bit of grey but so beautiful. Just adds to the beauty of the blue IMO.

    It's a gorgeous ring and spinel. Is that the spinel that Ryan Quantz cut? I see it sold, and had been lusting for it for quite some time.

    Thanks for the info on your spinel. It is a really gorgeous blue spinel I wholly understand not setting immediately as it is much easier to purchase gems than to set them. At least for me.
