A Trillium Red Spinel in a
Hand-Engraved Ring

Hand engraved platinum ring with a trillium red spinel.

Regal Red Elegance!

A glowing Red Spinel set in a beautiful hand-crafted platinum ring.  The ring is meticulously hand engraved with a rich variation of the wheat pattern.  The regal elegance of this jewel is reminiscent of the Art Deco era.

The red spinel is securely set in a three-prong mounting with an engraved gallery.  This ring was hand made so that the setting perfectly matches the size and shape of the spinel.

We selected this striking red spinel because of its glowing pinkish-Red color and dynamic trillium shape.  The spinel weighs  0.87 carats and measures approximately 6 millimeters from point to point.

The richly engraved pattern flows along the shoulders and sides of the ring and continues throughout the circumference of the band.  The edges of the band and gallery are milgrained with a small bead-like pattern for an added touch of elegance.

We narrowed the shoulders of the ring as they rise to meet the fiery spinel.  This creates a cathedral-like setting for the gemstone and keeps the ring from looking heavy or blocky.

The platinum band of the ring,  as well as the gallery beneath the red spinel,  are hand engraved.  Also, the upper gallery of the setting is neatly engraved with a trillium cluster of wheat leaves to complement the trillium-shape of the Red Spinel. Hand engraving a ring like this requires an artist's eye for detail,  a steady hand and several days on the jeweler's bench.

Viewing the inside of the ring,  you can see the symmetry of the design and the care with which the ring was crafted.  The underside of the ring is smoothly finished with crisp symmetrical edges and a beautiful high polish.  This ring was designed to offer exquisite beauty and to wear well for several generations.

Also note the engraver's mark,  a small four-petal flower,  at the base of the ring.  When engraving a ring,  the artist first creates a mark to center the design and then works outward and up the sides of the ring.  This center mark is often unique and serves as the engraver's hidden signature.

We are often asked what a ring would look like without engraving.  This photo shows the red spinel ring before it was hand engraved.  The flat, smooth surfaces of the ring are highly polished and the edges softly rounded.  Over time the mirror-like surfaces of the ring would develop a rich patina of minute scratches.  This style of ring can be made with a variety of precious metals and gemstones.
