    This thread is dedicated to zircons.
    In all colors and shapes. Set or unset.

    Share your favourite zircon pics and/or
    your knowledge on zircons.

    You can find zircons in stunning colors and
    an amazing dispersion. Bonus: mostly they
    are relatively affordable.

    It was set in the Single Stone setting which now houses her Paraiba cab.

    hooray, I love this thread! Everyone has amazing zircon pieces--zircon's are one of my favorite stones and I would have many more of them if I weren't so afraid of them chipping haha.

    My blue zircon was cut by Roger Dery and set by mydiamondzone on Ebay. I believe the zircon was 3.3ct, but most of that weight was depth, so it faces up quite a bit smaller (which was fine with me!)

    I also have a golden zircon. It's a bit of a chameleon. Changing from bright yellow to a copper color depending upon the lighting.

    Lovedogs: thanks for sharing your ring! I remember you had a zircon ring but I had not been able to find the pics yet. I love that ring!

    dk: your zircon rings look amazing. That zircon heart ring is absolute stunning. What a vibrant blue! I did not realise the white was a zircon as well. Gorgeous stone and setting.

    Catmom: that's a serious zircon collection. Beautiful stones and settings. That golden yellow is amazing as well.
