High end Art Deco ring!
Spinel has long been a favorite of gem dealers, but in recent years it has become very popular with gem collectors and jewelry lovers as well. Because the supply of natural spinel is very limited, you are unlikely to find it at retail jewelry shops. The spinel trade is mainly the province of specialized gem dealers who trade in the finest stones
Fine spinels from Burma are affordable in sizes under 1 carat, with prices ranging from $200 to $500 a carat for good colors. But prices go up exponentially with size. Top reds and pinks typically sell for $600 to $1,200 a carat in the 1-2 Ct size range, but increase dramatically over 2 carats. Top spinels in the 2 to 5 carat size will often sell for $3,000 to $5,000 a carat. For the very rare stones over 5 carats, prices in the range of $8,000 to $10,000 per carat are not unusual for the top colors.
