I realized today that I have never shared any pictures of one of my favorite right-hand rings with you all. So, I hurried outside and snapped a few pics. It is a round purple spinel (about 7 or 7.5mm) with two small diamond side-stones (maybe .25 carats each E/F color). Then on either side, there are three channel set diamonds. I normally don't like channel set stones that much, but I thought they were the perfect compliment to this setting. This was a gift to myself for graduating from law school last year. (But my mom was kind enough to find the purple spinel for me).

So, without further ado, here are some pics...I hope you enjoy them!

I had to take the pics on my left hand, so that I could hold the camera with my right.

Here is a really up-close shot. This spinel gives off so much fire, but it was tricky to catch.

Wow, your spinel is just amazing! It's the most perfect shade of purple, and the faceting of the stone really got me drooling! Your e-ring is also one of my favourite on PS! I'm dying of envy...

Thank you all SO MUCH for all the kind words about my rings! I am so glad that you like the purple spinel. It was kind of something that I did on the spur-of-the-moment. I only wish I got to wear it more often, but my wardrobe is lacking in purple. But I try to bring it out as often as possible!

OMG! This is beautiful! Would it be possible to get a shot from the side to see the channel-set diamonds that extend down the band? Gorgeous!
