Zircons

Our Zircon is a naturally occuring gemstone mined in Africa and Asia. Natural Zircon is durable, highly refractive, and has a dispersion of 0.038, which is very close to diamond (0.044), making it the original diamond substitute. It is NOT to be confused with Cubic Zirconia (CZ), which is a man-made material!

Did someone say “Diamonds are Forever”?

It turns out Zircons have actually been around forever, or as close to “forever” as we may get – 4.4 billion years!

Extremely Attractive Price Point

  • a fraction of the price of diamonds

  • Partly because of CZ - people ‘forgot’ about natural zircons!

  • from a few $’s per stone to thousands of $’s per stone

Available in a range of colors, many resembling those of colored Diamonds

Available in a range of sizes including larger stones 20-30cts

Is it Real...? YES, it is...!!

Natural Zircon...Naturally Brilliant!

From AGTA's Gemstone Information page:

"In the middle ages, zircon was said to aid sleep, bring prosperity, and promote honor and wisdom in its owner. The name probably comes from the Persian word zargun which means "gold-colored."

The fiery, brilliance of zircon can rival any gemstone. The affordability of its vibrant greens, sky blues, and pleasing earth tones contributes to its growing popularity today.

Zircon is mined in Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Thailand, and other countries. Because it can be colorless, green, blue, yellow, brown, orange, dark red, and all the colors in between, it is a popular gem for connoisseurs who collect different colors or zircon from different localities.
 

Zircon jewelry should be stored carefully because although this ancient gem is hard, facets can abrade and chip. Clean with mild dish soap: use a toothbrush to scrub behind the stone where dust can collect."
