Visually and viscerally, Grey Spinel also has a significant size advantage: with 5-carat, 10-carat and even larger stones, this gem can have an almost primeval effect on designer, wearer and spectator.

Perhaps these are the reasons for the rising trend of grey among young designers, this non-color color appeals to those who want to calm the loud, over chromatic buzz and create their own harmony. Suddenly, red, blue, pink and green look far too ordinary to those who live in and out their digital gadgets. The Gothic charm of Metallic Grey, the sleekness of a titanium, or the purity of glacier  resonate as distinct fashion statements.  The future of the Y and K generation is not bleak: It is Rocket Metallic, Cool Grey, or Krupp Steel Spinel-bright.
