This gem's magical presence is hard to capture in a photograph. Shifting colors of violet and pink have been cast under a spell of hazy moon-glow, to form one of the coolest tiny gems we've had the pleasure of guarding.
This gem is a spinel - a natural gem that for centuries had been confused for ruby or sapphire. In fact, many of the fine "rubies" in royal crown jewels are actually spinel.

This spinel weighs .38 carats and has been fashioned into a trilliant shape. It's the perfect gem for a fun petite ring or a simple pendant, with a tiny diamond accent.
