    About Spinel

    Spinel is a captivating yet often overlooked gemstone. It belongs to the spinel group of minerals, from which it gets its name.

Among them, the red and blue spinels are the most popular and valuable ones.

    With an impressive rating of 8 out of 10 on the Mohs scale of hardness, the spinel stone is a durable gemstone choice for jewelry. If you are looking for a beautiful and durable ring for your proposal that can withstand the wear and tear of daily life, a spinel engagement ring won't disappoint you!

    Red and Blue Spinels — The Great Imposters

    Red and blue spinels have earned the moniker "the great imposter" due to their uncanny resemblance to other gems, leading to historical misidentifications. For a long time, red gemstones in the royal jewelry collection were believed to be rubies. However, they were later revealed to be completely different gems, known as red spinels. The most notable case is of the Black Prince Ruby, sitting on the Imperial State Crown, which is actually a red spinel gem! Similar misunderstandings have happened with the blue spinel, where people initially assumed them to be blue sapphires.

    Profound Symbolism

    Beyond its mesmerizing beauty, a spinel stone also carries profound symbolism. It is commonly linked with revitalization and renewal and is said to bring energy and inner strength to the wearer. The red spinel, in particular, represents courage, passion and vitality. Its rich and vibrant red tones offer a sense of regality and warmth. The blue spinel, on the other hand, is said to symbolize inner peace and truth.
