Well I finally found what I was looking for in a red spinel! :love: :love: :love: I bought this ring pre-loved and the spinel was originally purchased from Multicolour in 2002. This spinel does not have a bad light and looks amazing in sunlight. In some lights it is vivid, in others just a glowy red. Stats are 1.92 carat cushion Burma red spinel set in 18 carat white gold with .50 carat of diamonds.

Thank you Lovedogs and Acadian. :) I searched two years for this color and cushion shapes are my favorite. This is now the spinel that rules them all.lol

Congrats! It looks well cut too, for a non-precision stone, which will help with the brilliance.

Thank you kgizo and Sundura. :)

I think your request Sundura is educational and I thank you for it. Here are some pics in different lighting conditions for anyone considering a red spinel. The first is in home LED lighting. The second in direct sunlight, and the third in shaded sunlight. All taken with my crappy Iphone and the only enhancement was to crop the pictures. My phone can't capture the glow of this stone and reds are hard to photograph. Still hope it is somewhat educational or fun. lol

What a gorgeous stone! I hope to own a beautiful red spinel someday. Can I ask what the stone's dimensions are?
