Spinel: A Trendy Gemstone
It is the trendiest gemstone included in the most recent collections. As we discovered in recent Tucson shows, even the grey spinels are now prized gems, when initially only a few of them were available.

In pastel pink at Chaumet, in red at Bvlgari, in raspberry shade for Dior Dior, Black for Elise Dray, and last but not least, in lilac, cobalt, grey, purple, and orange for Louis Vuitton.

Spinel, although unknown to the general public, has always been regarded as a valuable gemstone. Due to improvements in science and chemistry, their true nature couldn't be recognized until the nineteenth century.⁠

???? Exceptional specimens of spinels that are suitable for use as centre stones, are very massive and have a brilliant hue, and can cost up to 40,000 euros per carat.⁠
A Spinel For A Jewel
Spinel can be found as rings, earrings, and necklaces throughout the entirety of the existing jewelry collections. 18k pink gold is their most loyal ally! Indeed, there is nothing better than the softness of this precious metal to accentuate their brilliant color. Whether or not spinel is your birthstone, it is the ideal gemstone for jewelry.

Due to the fact that spinel is considerably rarer than sapphire, it will soon become a highly coveted gem.

An Affordable Stone: Spinel
Spinels are available in a wide range of hues, sometimes displaying a more vibrant hue than a comparable precious gem of similar quality. Spinel is a translucent to opaque gem with ruby-like red colours, some of which are darker or nearly orange

Undoubtedly, cobalt blues are especially beautiful and vibrant, but they are already quite expensive due to their rarity.

In addition, spinels end to have fewer inclusions than costlier colour-like precious stones.
We have lately acquired a beautiful collection of spinels, which will be updated weekly with new ones. We believe that this stone has great promise for the future, and we estimate that now is the greatest moment to get one, prior to its price skyrocketing.

With over ten years of marketing experience, I finally decided to settle down in Bangkok to work in an area that I have always been interested in: the gemstones industry. I'm still learning how the market works on a daily basis, and I enjoy sharing my experience with those who are interested in learning more about gems in general.
