Crafted in the 1950s, this marvelous ring features a 1.90-carat oval cut green synthetic spinel, prong-set into 10k yellow gold. The vibrant green hue fluoresces in the daylight and is framed by two one point diamonds—a beautiful vintage ring for all occasions.
Spinel has a long history with jewelry, but few people are aware it exists. The most famous spinel, the Black Prince’s Ruby, appears on the British Crown since the 15th century, and until the 1940s, was mistaken as a ruby. Spinel is highly saturated in hue and often found alongside ruby and sapphire deposits, so its identity is commonly misunderstood. Little is written about spinel, but some believe it will help you connect with your inner source of power. Spinel is an alternative birthstone for August.

The ring is in very good vintage condition with minimal signs of wear. The spinel’s surface is charming, with no chips or cracks and only fine nicks on the facet junctions under magnification. The diamonds are one point each and securely set into the mounting. The inside of the shank is stamped 10K, and a maker’s mark that is so worn I cannot read it.
The ring is a size 6.75 and can be sized. The synthetic spinel measures 8.8mm x 6.8mm x 4.4mm and weighs 1.90 carats. The ring weighs 1.99 grams. The box is for display only.
