Spinel setting

  • Classic bezel setting with the gold all the way around the spinel
  • Open bezel setting, where the gold goes around the girdle (edges) of the spinel, but exposes the culet (the bottom) of the stone
  • Prongs
    • 4 prongs compass, positioned North, East, South and West
    • 4 prongs in the corners
    • 5 prongs (recommended only for stones over 5 mm)
    • 6 prongs (recommended only for stones over 5 mm)

Our white gold is rhodium plated, and the rhodium plating tends to wear off the prongs. So white gold prongs need more care and maintenance. A basket setting is a type of prong setting, but with a little difference when viewed from the side or profile. The prongs will rise up from a base or 'basket' into which the gemstone is set.   If you choose an irregular shaped spinel, we can send you sketches to see some prong placement options, and you can request to position the stone horizontal or vertical.

Band shape

  • Half round band, also called D shaped. This shank is flat on the inside and rounded on the outside, for a comfortable fit. Around 1.6 mm wide.
  • Round band. This shank tends to spin more and is not recommend if your knuckles are wider than the part of your finger where the ring sits. Around 1.2 mm wide.

Additional small stones in the band

  • Plain band, no additional diamonds
  • Small sparkling white Canadian diamonds (G-H color, SI clarity) - you choose how many
  • Small salt and pepper diamonds (you choose how many)

Additional stones on the side with bezel or 3-prong setting

  • Salt and pepper diamonds around 2.5 mm
  • Purplish blue Yogo sapphires from Montana, around 2 mm
  • Soft peachy pink spinels in high quality pentagon cut. With their unusual cuts this makes for a unique three stone ring!

The price will be automatically adjusted depending on the stones and design you choose. 

We use 18 karat eco-gold, which is mined and processed with traditional, mercury-free low-impact practices by indigenous Dayak women in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo, who receive fair pay.
