I just ordered this golden zircon from Jim McCormick/ElvizPrasiolite. I've been wanting a larger round(ish) yellow stone so thought I'd take a chance on it.

It is just under 8 carats and around 11 mm off round, $600 (US).

What yellow gems do you have? Pics, pretty please! :)

Also, if I like this stone in real life, I envision it in either a flower ring or a sun pendant. Does anyone have a zircon ring or thoughts on its suitability for a ring since zircon is somewhat soft?

Beautiful yellows! Most of my yellows are yellow diamonds but I do have a golden zircon ring and a citrine pendant and earring set.

Wow you have many gems! I love all of them but especially that sapphire.

Thank you! This is one of the sapphires from CeylonSapphireGems. I didn't know I wanted it until he told me the price. :lol: His yellows are a crazy good deal lately. It's at GIA getting a cert just because it's unheated.

BTW, AGL can't check for BE in-house which is why it went to GIA.

Yes I started following him after seeing your stone; one of these is on my “wish list” now which is steadily growing....

My golden zircon just arrived. This is the first one I've seen in person and I'm not quite sure about it tbh because it looks so different in different lights. I haven't been able to capture it all that accurately on camera but it goes from just looking like a run of the mill citrine with dark shadows in it to glowy showy orange-yellow to bright yellow and throwing off little gorgeous flashes of light everywhere. Guess I'll play with it for a day and see. Input is most welcome! (Don't worry, you won't hurt my feelings lol). Would you keep it or send it back?

Here are a couple of pics (It's a gloomy day here today):

I see two pictures. One in shaded light. One with light hitting it directly. Zircon does need light to show off its dispersion. If the light is blocked, so is the dispersion or sparkle. Also, not all lights are great for dispersion. The best lights are sunlight, led, and incandescent. Some light does make a stones color more vivid depending on the color of the stone. This is typical of most stones.



Only you can decide if you like it. Zircons are definitely a stone for light, not the shadows. Sounds like you really like it in certain light and not so much in other or as the picture, shaded light. Also, you say you can't completely capture it on camera, so really, only you can decide as the stone probaly looks different (better or worse?) than your pictures. Does it look like the picture you showed first in any of the light? Again, only you can decide in the end. :)

Zircon is one of the most under appreciated stones. It does look more like a canary diamond than a citrine. I have one and just love it

Zircon is a brittle stone and will chip on its edges. A protective setting is best. I’ve seen some nice settings that showcase zircon and protect them quite well. Zircon is an undervalued stone in my opinion. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

So I don’t have too much yellow, but what I have , I love. I especially enjoy my yellow sapphire ring in the summertime on a sunny day. It’s a 3.54 ct. elongated cushion, treatment unknown, handmade in 18kt gold with two brilliant diamonds in the front and back gallery.
I bought it in an antique store on consignment.
A gemologist at my favorite jewelry store thought it was untreated/unheated, but it’s not been verified.
The band is also handmade with three fancy yellow diamonds, each a different shade. They’re set into a pretty vine design. Also from an antique jewelry store. Don’t have specifics on the stones unfortunately. I know they sparkle like crazy and seem to be well cut.
