Earthy Hand Carved Grey Spinel Halo Engagement RingMy signature "Carved Bark Band" takes on an antique halo form in this handmade white gold spinel and diamond engagement ring, made from recycled gold. Surrounded by sparkling white conflict-free diamonds is an earth-mined Burmese spinel. It is untreated, a silver grey in most light and a slight purple hue in others. The stone is a custom precision cut with wide facets with excellent clarity.This spinel measures about 6mm in diameter and is .90ct. With the halo setting included, the diameter of the halo is 8.80mm. The stone is ethically traceable, mined in Burma which produces desirable spinel varieties. I prefer to purchase my gemstones through suppliers who care about the ethics in mining and gemstone production and also donate proceeds of sales to underprivileged communities in these mining areas. Elevated above the band, the halo is set atop the ring with room underneath to allow for stacking with wedding bands. The band is just a little under 2mm in width and is fully rounded for comfort. You will only find this ring here! It is my signature carved style.This ring is currently a size 6.25 and is fully resizable for a small fee. Please note, this item is non-refundable after it has been resized. Please allow one week for resizing.
About the Stone:
Spinel is a gemstone that at one time was most famous for being mistaken for ruby or sapphire. These days spinel gets the respect it deserves - it is recognized for its excellent hardness , brilliance, and the fact that unlike most ruby and sapphire gemstones, spinel is never heated or treated in any way.
Due to its very good dispersion, spinel gemstones can possess vivid fire. The intensity of spinel color is in part due to the fact that spinel is one of the few singly refractive gemstones, the others include garnet and diamond.

They breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen. Additionally, they provide habitat for birds and other wildlife and play a vital role in our natural water cycle. Forests help regulate the water in the air through a process called transpiration. They absorb thousands of gallons of water into their roots. Excess water is then released through the leaves back into the air. For every purchase made, I donate one planted tree through Plant-It 2020. Small changes by individuals can make a difference in the fight against climate change. You will be reminded of your efforts each time you look down at your beautiful gold bark band.Shipping:This ring will ship in an Anueva Jewelry reusable gift box with a free polishing cloth.
