Stunning 5.55 carats Pink Burmese Spinel


Hey Loungers, 

As you probably know by now, spinels are one of our favourite stones and what an honour it is to be working on such a special piece as this one!

The story behind this gem is as special as the gem itself, the person whom has ordered this gem from us did not meet us before hand, neither did he see the stone prior to purchase. 

This gentleman needed a special pink spinel over 5 carats in order to create a very unique piece of jewellery to gift to his beloved wife. 

Out of sheer trust, our customer, ordered us to purchase the stone on his behalf while it was still weighting 7.01 carats. At that point, we had yet to meet up and him to see the gem. He then, on our advice, agreed to recut the stone to bring it to where it is today: 5.55 carats. 

Imagine the leap of faith on a gem of that price! 

When we met, in Switzerland a few days short of Christmas 2019, we finally met and, he finally saw his baby! This gem, completely eye clean (very much unlike what you see in the macro photo and macro video present on this page) was an instant crowd pleaser once released. 

We are now looking for more gems for him and are obviously humbled and proud to have been chosen by this person to find such priceless gems!

See you soon in the Lounges,
