She is a wonderful size 5.5 and shows beautifully! Originally she had a blue Spinel in her, although I had another that was brighter and crisper so I had her changed out by my jeweler. All prongs are nice and tight and set in beautifully!
This piece is actually European as it has a maker's mark along with 585 marked inside. 585 is 14k gold in the U.S. Whomever decides to take this lovely home is super lucky to have such a lovely Victorian piece of history!!! $529.00
A Bit of History on Spinel:
Spinel is a mineral group which produces some of the finest gemstones, yet it has never been accepted by the general public as a valuable adornment due to poor marketing. It has a hardness that is equal to topaz and is very durable. Historically, red Spinel was found first and was always thought to be Ruby or Garnet. Durability is very durable and is found in all colors!
