Product Details

Sphene is one of those magical gems that can enchant, the best quality gemstones as per our gemstone, display brilliant fire and flash three different colours. It is a lime/pear green stone that flashes orange and yellow. Originating from Madagascar we met a gemstone dealer at the Tuscon Fine Gem Show specialising in extremely unusual gemstones. This sphene by far and away pulled us in and we were unable to leave without it. It rates 5 to 5.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness, so it’s more delicate than other gems and it is for this reason that it has been set into this magnificent pear-shaped bespoke pendant drop.  The natural colouring of the gem led us to include a vivid round yellow diamond to enhance and finesse the pendant design and is now available for you to love and cherish.

Sphene is a collector’s gem, it belongs to the titanite mineral group, occurring as an accessory mineral in granitic and calcium-rich metamorphic rocks, and is particularly rare in large clear gemstones above 5 carats.  Sphene has one of the highest dispersions of any mineral: meaning the mineral’s ability to break white light into spectral colours. The dispersion of sphene is 0.051. A diamond’s dispersion, by comparison, is 0.044. It’s this high number that helps to give the stone such an intense “fire,” showcasing multiple colours, especially when it’s well-cut.

Words from Our Customers

I have had several pieces designed by the lovely staff at Michael Platt in Wimbledon. The pieces have been much admired. My first visit was several years ago so when I wanted something designed and made with stones from other pieces of jewellery which were very sentimental I had absolutely no hesitation about bringing the project to the shop in Wimbledon. The staff are so helpful, warm, welcoming and informative. Great service and a delight to do business with. I have never been disappointed.

My wife and I purchased a lovely bespoke entwined engagement & wedding ring from Michael Platt, 28 years ago. We visited in February this year to enquire about an eternity ring. Jordan was inspirational and used diamonds from a family heirloom. The design full complemented and sits beautifully with the original rings. It was a very pleasurable experience and we are both delighted with the result. Fantastic to know they are still offering great service and bespoke design.

Brilliant personal service every step of the way. I wanted a diamond engagement ring and was able to easily discuss different stones and design options with Grace sending sketches back and forth. I decided on an emerald cut stone with a platinum ring. Communication was excellent and the ring delivered on time and discreetly to an agreed address. I proposed by Lake Windermere having hidden the ring in the sandwich tin. A beautiful ring - my partner loves it!

I have had two stunning pieces of jewellery made by Michael Platt. One is a beautifully intricate diamond pendant and the other a spectacular dress ring reusing my own stones that have a lot of sentimental value. I am thrilled with both pieces. Wayne listened carefully to all my (very detailed!) requirements and followed them to the letter. This is a highly skilled team with amazing attention to detail and wonderful service. I am an absolutely delighted customer!

The service we have received here has been second to none. We first came to the shop a few years ago and had my engagement ring designed and created. It really is incredible what they do. The design was perfect to me and my style and the final product exceeded our expectations. So much so we finally came back recently and had both wedding rings made. Thanks again to the members of staff at Michael Platt you really are a fabulous bunch and make dreams come true!
