This was my auction jewelry item at the 2018 Western Design Conference-Jackson Hole
Spinel is a very old gemstone. It is a gem similar to ruby and sapphire, including its hardest and durability. A good fit for often-worn jewelry. In this bracelet, which is made from sterling silver with highlights of 14 Karat gold, Black Spinel was chosen. Not only for it’s overall strength, but for the fact that it takes a high luster polish, adding to its appeal.
