    I wanted to share my find with all the Zircon lovers. I have been following this Zircon thread and fell in love with the Cambodian Blue Zircons. I found this ring on Etsy from R and R Estate Jewelers in Oklahoma City. Its a 10mm blue zircon set in 14k. I have been wearing it with my two favorite gold bands. I really like the look. The blue just pops in the yellow gold. Its a really gemmy blue, less slate and more electric. Sort of hard to get a photo that shows its beautiful color. I am a girl that likes to rotate my ring sets. This "set" will be in heavy rotation. (I used my German Shepherd as a backdrop-she wouldn't move until I gave her a good scratch.) Cheers!

    It is done and I love it! I received today but too late for the day light. Here is a quick peek (in my bathroom light).

    This is spectacular. I agree with @ZestfullyBling We need daytime neck shots.

    I love the overlapping circles or waves in the pendant (like water). The design pairs beautifully with the blue zircon. The bail design is wonderful: another overlapping circle design that is different from the pendant.

    Please tell us more!

    Thank you! I actually did take neck shots but they failed to capture the glamour of the pendant. Every time I tried on the pendant, I was like WOW. It is really stunning but it just looks ok in the photos. Still, here your are:

    Oh, @Sungura, you are so right; the first time I saw the design I thought of waves too! I have the pendant made as a gift to my niece, a wonderful young lady. I first made up my mind I will gift her a pendant with a blue stone since blue is one of her favorite colors. I then started browsing for pendant designs. When I saw this design (by ebay leejewelry), I loved it right away and I knew it would work well with the blue stone. I thought of topaz, zircon, or aquamarine, and decided on the 7.78ct oval zircon by Mastercutgem. I anticipated the pendant would look nice, but it greatly exceeded my expectation! I know my niece will be thrilled; I cannot wait to see her happy face!

    I received my first zircon today. It is rose cut (also a first), a faint peachy-pink champagne color, 10x8 mm, weighs 3.37 cts, and pre-loved. Thank you, @OreoRosies86 . I really like it! 20190620_172622.jpg

    @Atwater first of all , I must strongly disagree with you. When I look at the neck shots I'm not like "ok". I'm like. "W:love:W!!!!!
    That is a gorgeous piece and looks stunningly blingy on your neck!!! I'd wear that beauty every day!!!!

    Just arrived from the UK, a vintage zircon in the deepest hue I've ever owned. The cutting isn't the best, but this color...yummy!

    @icy_jade has 7 (seven!) new rings. One of her rings is a zircon ring. A stunning zircon ring! Let’s encourage her to post a lot more pics.

    @Acinom thanks! Not really thread worthy, thanks to PS, I've learned that what looked wonky to me is called 'extinction'. But I think it's beautiful and enjoy the moodiness. Pics inside (at It's worst) and in my car (where It's super distracting!) 20190713_140204.jpg

    Here is my zircon. The seller said it's from Cambodia.
    I made the ring about 12 years ago. It is sterling.
