Historically, spinel has often been mistaken for ruby due to its rich, romantic red hue. Like ruby, spinel also ranks high on the Mohs scale, just below ruby with a hardness of eight. This makes spinel an ideal scratch-resistant alternative gemstone candidate for an engagement ring that will stand up to everyday wear.
Our one-of-a-kind ring features a deep red 2.85-carat oval-cut, unheated Mahenge spinel (GIA-certified), framed by 1.18 total carats of trillion cut diamonds (H-I color and SI1-SI2 clarity).
Radiant Cut Fancy Yellow Diamond Ring
The classic halo engagement ring makes a sunny statement with this original, house made design.
The ring leads with a stunning 5.33-carat radiant cut Fancy Yellow diamond (VS1 clarity), accented with 0.42 total carats of round brilliant cut diamonds framed by milgrain detailing.
Pink Sapphire and Diamond Ring
Pink sapphires make a pretty and practical choice for an alternative engagement ring due to the stone’s hardness and scratch resistance, second only to diamonds.
Handmade in-house and set in a premium platinum setting, this original Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry design offers an impressive 5.30-carat oval cut, heated pink sapphire flanked by two half-moon cut diamonds which weigh a total of 1.30 carats.
Emerald-Cut Diamond Bypass Ring
Toi et Moi rings bring together two different yet complementary gemstones. Like soulmates, the twin gems in this distinctive ring style offer a perfectly balanced symbol of everlasting marital love. From a practical standpoint, the open bypass style of a Toi et Moi engagement ring means that it will fit comfortably for years to come, with no resizing required.

Pink Padparadscha Sapphire Ring

magnificent specimen of the rare gem.
