    I'd forgotten spinels as a possibility. Your jeweller actually sounds as though he knows what he's talking about. ;)

    These were relatively inexpensive, hence the silver rather than platinum.

    Yes, I was impressed with the jeweller, he immediately said what it was & then used a loop to be sure. I'm still very happy with my £1 purchase!

    That makes sense with 9ct gold, I forgot about that. We have from 14ct upwards. Here it would have been yellow and white gold in the 70s. And probably white sapphires instead of spinels.

    Spinels are very good stones btw, but they were only used here until ca 1940. It is a pity they are out of fashion, but I prefer period jewellery anyway, so I do find them occasionally.

    Any Jewelry, I do like the spinels, they still have a lot of sparkle to them. But it explains why they are so damaged, I suppose. Thanks for your help! I've learned a lot :).

    @Figtree3 , hello!!! And thanks for dropping in! You've inspired me to dig out some photos to post... and catch up with everyone's photos :).
