Madelynn Cassin Designs
Black Spinel Ring
Black Spinel Ring
12mm round natural black spinel ring
Similar in appearance to black diamond and black onyx, but stronger than onyx- Spinel is polished to a shine and beautifully faceted.
Spinel is phenomenally durable, a 9 on the MOHS hardness scale, and this stone is a whopping 12mm across, just around 1/2 an inch.
The solitaire sits about 8mm off the finger and pairs nicely with a band ring, or as a solitaire statement ring.
The beaded style band is a little over 1.7mm thick and tall.
An excellent choice for the non-traditional bride, as a statement ring for New Year's Eve, or to wear with stacking rings you customize and wear daily.
This setting was hand carved in wax, cast in metal, and hand polished, prepped, soldered and set in our workshop in Keene, NH. From concept to completion all settings are handcrafted and never utilize prefabricated components bought from jewelry supply catalogs.

What makes my jewelry special
Madelynn Cassin Designs has been selling on ETSY since 2008 under the shop name Onegarnetgirl. This small, independently owned business grew from a love of gemstones and a passion for making. Madelynn's designs are inspired by large, naturally occurring colored gemstones and the way they sparkle in the sun. These mini works of art start from a block of wax that she then carefully carves into the bold yet delicate and feminine creations that bare her name. This labor of love has grown from a small workspace on a three-season porch to a bustling workshop in an old mill building, where Madelynn continues to handmake objects that help people feel beautiful, loved and express their personalities.
Sustainability is super important, as the effects of mining for precious materials can devastate communities unnecessarily. Because of this, we use only alloys that are 100% recycled, ethically sourced gemstones, and utilize compostable, plant based packaging.
