So I rewarded my spring cleaning by buying this ring from DT. I've always loved the look of clean lines and have been wanting something bigger for a statement piece sort of ring. All my rings this far have had smaller stones because I generally prioritize color over all else and all the best examples of color in my price range are around the 1 ct mark most commonly lol.

The spinel is a little over 2ct. Setting by David klass. Awesome work. Love the pointed prongs.
The spinel is quite moody in color. It looks it's best in the shade of natural light where it's a gorgeous flashy red. And worst in the office lights where it's a murkier hue with more orange and brown modifiers. Over all though it's a lot of fun to look at, I might just a different ring for days I'm in the office a lot! It will be long time if ever when I can afford a spinel this size in my ideal color so in the mean time I'll have this beauty for statement and size and my smaller red spinels for purity of color!

Lots of pics coming up!

So the slight orange/brown modifier isn't very obvious when you wear the ring alone. But is more apparent when I compare it to my smaller spinels. The cushion is particular is probably the purest most open red color I've seen in a gem so far. Unfortunately it's not 2+ carats!

Oh MTG, it gorgeous! I was wondering who snapped this up. I love the proportions of this ring so much - the fatter sidestones with the slimmer spinel, idk, it just really works for me. And the spinel looks positively gigantic on your finger.

Sometimes inside with the soft yellow light bulbs it looks like a strawberry color.

Thanks. Yeah I wear a size 4.5.
It's nice to have a ring that looks substantial. It's a big change from most of my rings which are very delicate as that's how my tastes typically run. But I've been craving heavier pieces these days.

It's a classical beauty. What a lovely purchase. The smaller spinel may not be 2 carats but the colour packs a punch and it's also gorgeous.

Yeah I keep saying I'll reset the smaller spinel into a high carat gold ring of some sort but have never gotten around to it because I find that setting loose stones always takes priority. Or buying impulsive pieces like this lol

Unfortunately it looks like my dreams of resetting the cushion maybe passed on to another pricescoper. I can't wait to see what she does with it!

Hi, Not sure how this works or if this will work... I am trying to contact the user "distracts".

I know this is a WAYYYY long shot, but I am trying to track down a ring and you posted a picture of it in 2010... I know, long long ago... I have posted the picture again and am wondering if you might remember where you got the picture?? Really trying to find it! Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

You may have better luck posting a call out on loupe troop if you're trying to reach her!

On a side note. Took the ring on safari today during lunch cause it was so nice out!

According to this site the picture of the ring was from Anagara jewelry.

MakingTheGrade- I stopped back to this thread to drool over more pics. Your spinel is quite the adventurer. :)
