FBOW (for better or worse.... is that an actual acronym? guess it is now.) I saw an 18 carat spinel on the costco website. :shifty:

I was lured by their $499,999.99 tennis diamond necklace!!! The spinel looked a bit like a rhodolite and you would think that for $81,000 they could provide better pictures.

I suppose it is a bargain when you compare to McTeigue and McClelland 5 ct spinel ring for about $35,000 (which looks so pretty in the picture!)

I saw that spinel ad a couple of days ago and wondered what the stone looks like in real life. I want it. I also want the Townshend spinel (with all it's extinction) but that is not for sale. :)

I think it's a much better value to get a large pyrope garnet instead of that thing. It looks identical to a pyrope or lower quality rhodolite.
