Spinel Jewelry Created from a Rare Yet Affordable Gemstone
Classified as its own gemstone species in the late 1500s, spinel has been used in jewelry for centuries. If you haven't heard of the spinel gemstone, it's not because it's not worthy of attention. A fine spinel is a rare gem — more rare even than the ruby, a gemstone it's been known to impersonate throughout history. The Black Prince's ruby, a famous gem of the British Crown Jewels, is actually a large red spinel in disguise.
These days, the spinel gemstone has no need to masquerade. This collectors' favorite has earned its place in the world of fine jewelry on its own merits, which include stunning brilliance and a hardness that makes for durable, long-lasting spinel jewelry of all kinds. Spinel can be found in a wide array of breathtaking colors, some of which can be seen in Ross-Simons' varied collection of spinel rings, spinel bracelets, spinel necklaces and spinel earrings.
Because spinel is a well-kept secret, spinel jewelry is surprisingly affordable, so you can build your jewelry collection for less. Black spinal jewelry set in yellow gold or sterling silver is a versatile option; the Ross-Simons' collection offers other types of spinel gemstones, including lovely pink spinel.
