REDUCED PRICE: Spring/Summer Sale & Free Shipping Event!
Was $220!

On offer today is this very rare Uranium Spinel ring, coming to us in time from the 1960s. This sweet spring-green stone has a dark secret in its heart, yes we are talking *that* Uranium! These stones have some interesting properties... under normal/natural lighting they are an innocent, slightly opalescent light green color. Under incandescent lighting they pale dramatically and have an internal flare to them most white stones don't. But under black light they go nuclear, and blaze a brilliant neon acid green. Leave it to the Hippie generation to make something pretty, fun and trippy out of the substance that had their parents cowering under desks!

Note Uranium stones are safe to wear! They emit less radiation than your cell phone or microwave oven. Just don't grind it up and inhale it! (ha like anyone would do that!) XD

Convo me to request a pic of it doing its nuclear thing....!

Frequently asked questions about AuldBaubles

SAFETY:
Vintage/Antique baby/children's jewelry almost certainly does not meet metals safety standards for youngsters of today. Therefore I can only sell it for adult use.

I cannot guarantee sterility of earring posts/hooks/wires (and/or other pieces where this may be an issue). Please purchase and use at your own risk.

LOCAL JEWELERS:
May try to sell you work your ring doesn't need! Be on your guard, refer to Item Details for info re: prongs and bands.

COLORS ARE APPROXIMATE:
Colors may display inaccurately on screens.
RING SIZES are approximate, due to jewelers' ring sizing mandrels not being completely standardized.

STONE SIZES are necessarily estimates, because in most cases, I cannot measure the depth of a stone due to its being in a setting. I measure the diameter (or length and width) of a stone with digital calipers, and estimate its carat weight from its span.

BANGLE SIZE: Please note the inner diameter for the bangle. I suggest you cut out a mock-up on sturdy cardboard to see how it will fit you before ordering.
The outer packaging is discreet, nobody will know there is jewelry inside.

I do not use my shop name on the return address; this is for the item's safety in transit and for privacy on arrival, as jewelry items are often bought as gifts.

Pieces are sent in small carton boxes tied with rustic string, or cushioned inside handmade wrapping paper gift bags.
