Comment: Should it have passed you by: grey spinels were all the rave in 2019. Only a few years ago collectors and jewelers never failed to complain about too much gray in all but true Cobalt-spinel. Now, for some, the purer the gray, the better. First, in the name of science, let's remember that gray is not a hue at all but a tone and in so far, we are theoretically talking only about white spinel with a darker tone (light gray, deeper gray, black). That said, we can shamelessly indulge in fancy new names such as 'graphite spinel or 'titanium spinel'. Truth is, in the told-you-so fashion, that pastel pink or steel blue spinels have always been respected members in our inventory, gray or not. This 1.23 oval is on the bright side of the tone spectrum with IGI adding a purple to its color description. It could be a tint of blue as well, but with less light the gem rapidly looses any color and darkens from a polished silver to carbon steel tone (as in handshots below). These gems offer a broad spectrum of impressions, not color-changing of course, but tone-changing. Clean and sparkly, no window and untreated, reserve a top-quality specimen for your collection or a 'what-stone-is-this?' ring before fashion drives up the price of this last up-and-coming spinel variety. Remember periwinkle or violet spinels? Nobody wanted them... until everybody wanted them. Good ring size up to seven or eight, thereafter with halo or a flush setting. As always, global shipping, 1000sqm WLT rainforest, lead-donor for the NhRP, grading papers and IGI report are included in our prices.
