Story

Gone largely unappreciated in the vast world of gemstones, the zircon is a true natural marvel. With a refractive index (the ability of a substance to bend light rays, i.e., sparkle) nearly as high as the diamond and with a dispersion (breaking up white light into its individual wavelengths or colors) equal to that of the diamond, the zircon has the advantage of occurring more often in a variety of colors than does the diamond.

This example from the turn of the 20th century displays an enticing goldenrod yellow hue in a faceted natural zircon of an estimated 3.25 carat. The gem shows magnificent fire (the result of splitting light into its spectral colors) with truly warm coloration and richly accented with strong highlights. An 18k yellow gold rectangular bezel with cut off corners enhances the subtle soft coloration of the natural stone.

Flanking the sides of the centered zircon are two (2) old European cut diamonds with a total estimated diamond weight of .20 carats set in platinum collets. Split shoulders and an unusual pierced under gallery give a sophisticated style to a design not typical to its time frame.

Date: Circa 1900.
