    I’m so ridiculously pleased with it. I’ve got it in a nearby gem jar, and it just draws my eye so easily.

    Next step figuring out what to do with it. Thinking of a ring, but I remember reading somewhere about being careful about bezeling it?

    Looking forward to seeing what you do. I'm leaning towards a semi bezel but have just about overloaded myself with too many pictures!

    @T L that orange is so fiery! Good job keeping the budget low with white zircon! Is there a vendor you'd recommend if I want to halo something with white zircon in the future?

    Thank you!! I just buy clearance or sale rings from the shopping networks or eBay, plop out the crappy center stone, and my jeweler sets my stone. I know it’s sacrilege, but I like instant gratification so I buy inexpensive silver settings for my less valuable gems. It saves me a fortune though. It’s silver and zircon. The fire opal is from osirisgems, and yes, it’s really neon. Vendor shot. Sorry not a zircon!

    7DCFE519-393D-47B8-9406-80ABABB51756.jpeg Here’s another inexpensive silver setting with a ton of natural zircon. It has an apatite sitting on top of it, but I’m going to use it for another gem.

    I am completely obsessed. Do you have a link to the original listing? I've been pouring over options on their site for one like that, but the returns are a pain and the color is tough to "read" via monitor so I keep getting freaked out I'm going to buy one that isn't the right color IRL.
