Hey Guys ! My hubby got these made for my 34th birthday. Feeling like a princess :smile: what a lovely gift.
We went to a local jeweller and i asked to see what gemstones they had. I saw a lot of really cool stones and we started just playing with combinations. Then we ended up putting these aquamarines and pink spinel's next to each other and all of us went "omg". haha. I didn't want to spend that much and i went back a few times because I didn't want to ask my husband to spend more than his original budget. He said he didn't mind at all, and that ill probably end up getting them so just do it anyways.
Feeling very lucky.
I also love what the represent to me. I'm currently pregnant with a boy (24 weeks), and afterwards i thought - the pink is me, and the blue is him. (I know its a very traditional way of thinking about gender - so sorry if this upsets anyone. i thought it was nice representation that the two of us are together and even though they are a birthday present, i feel very connected to the representation of togetherness as well.)
Anyways here they are ! 18ct white gold, 2x spinel's 4.32ct, 2x aquamarines 5.39ct. :smile:
Earrings are gorgeous and I too love the story behind them. Enjoy!!!!!!!

I don't find much on spinel.
How's the longevity of it? I'm looking for a few gems to do some bespoke rings. Spinel, sapphire, tanzanite. These are what interest me.
I'm introduced a grey spinel - is it worth getting it?

I’ve seen some grey spinel rings that are absolutely gorgeous! Spinel is 7.5-8 on the Mohs scale, so fairly hard…durable enough for daily wear. Check out AuroraDesigner.com - they sell rings and loose stones in all the gems you’re interested in.
