Good morning.

So a few years ago I saw the perfect pair of OEC blue zircon studs but was too slow and missed out. They were approximately 10mm in diameter.

I am interested in finding a pair but I know it's looking for a needle in a haystack. OEC. Blue Zircon. You don't see that everyday.

I would prefer studs but I am interested any blue zircon OEC earrings even dangles. As long as they are lightweight.

I don't want to go the custom route so decided to post here and see if anyone has a pair they do not wear anymore.

Thanks

Hello @missy
Linking these as an option but they are probably too small in diameter 7.1mm or so.
Lovely though!

TY! Very pretty! The size is OK as I don't have to get large studs but I am not in love with the cut (I know ridiculous on small studs to worry about that). It's hard to find a nicely cut OEC zircon that is for sure. I love Addy's vintage and actually do have a pair of blue zircons from her LOL. Very delicate dangles. I love them. Let me see if I have a photo. I don't think I ever took a photo wearing them

This is the only photo I have..not my photo but addy's photo...I love blue zircon gems

I was lucky to be at the right place and at the right time with sufficient funds to purchase the 8mm precision cut OEC blue Zircon that @CHRISTY-DANIELLE listed for sale.

I have not come across OEC blue Zircon since!

Therefore, I would be inclined to advise to go down the custom cutting route myself with the likes of Jeff Davies.

I was shopping for an antique ring box on Etsy and saw these, probably way bigger than you want, but they sure are pretty!

I am not suggesting these but just thought it was so weird that the one on the right is decently cut and is, I believe, OEC cut, but the one on the left is a disaster! I love blue zircon so will keep an eye out.

Glad to know I am not the only one who thought the two blue Zircons have different cuts!

Also, I would be sceptical about the colour of the blue Zircons being "natural" myself.

All IMHO.

I just bought a pair of delicious antique blue zircon studs from Addy. Original platinum prongs with new yg backs. It might be worth asking her what she has on hand but not listed. She always seems to have blue zircon pieces and at one point was making studs and such from an old brooch. Maybe she's got some?
Also the cut on antique zircons looks a lot like OEC, but is actually called the "zircon cut". It has a few more facets- to take advantage of a sparkly gem !

IG seller I've bought from before. Zircons are 8.5mm. Not sure if you're a pearl kinda gal?

Tysm Christy. I spoke with her and unfortunately they’re just a drop too heavy for my lobes :(
Thank you for thinking of me!

Those are beautiful! Did she give you a price range out of curiosity?

I saw the most gorgeous blue zircon earrings on Era Gem but too heavy :(
This is, unfortunately, becoming a theme in my search.
I would LOVE OEC zircon studs and that would solve the weight issue. But I cannot find any whose pattern and color I love.
So will keep searching. Thank you everyone who has chimed in with suggestions. Much appreciated!

In case you are still looking, these are 11mm(total), currently on sale. This is a great seller I've purchased from before.
