With the slightly increased production of the last couple of years and the surge in demand, the price of the best Vietnamese Spinel has been on a serious upswing.  It seems that first with the Mahenge stones and now with the distintive Luc Yen stones, Spinel has finally gotten much of the notice that it deserves.  And with this superb color, what other gem material could this realistically be?  And once you have settled on Spinel, where else but Vietnam could give us a color close to this?  No excuses here, this is the top color for the locality and one of the most desirable stones in the market right now.  The strong blue element to the color is exceptional.    

All of this makes a finely matched pair more desirable.  With the cost of rough, matching stones is not a priority and, indeed, this is one of the few sets we have been able to offer in this fantastic color.  Completely clean and bright, a simply gorgeous pair.
