Art Deco Blue Zircon Diamond Ring Platinum

$ 5,500.00

You know how every once in a while a color that you really love will come into fashion and you just have to buy every sweater and jacket and tee that you can while that color is hot because you know that it might not come around again for a while? Well, this is my color. Not turquoise blue, Zircon blue. The color of my favorite cashmere sweater, the color of the water off St. Barth's on a clear sunny day.

I love a Blue Zircon, any blue zircon, but I fell especially hard for this stunning example. Right up there next to diamonds, blue zircons are one of the most sparkly of gems, but rarely do I see a stone with this depth of color, so bright and rich it makes you reach for your sunglasses. This zircon measures 15.2x10.2x7.6 mm and weighs about 11 carats.

Set in platinum, with a triplet of diamonds on each shoulder, this Art Deco ring likely dates to about 1920. The ring is a size 7.25 and could be re-sized, although be certain that no heat is applied directly to the stone or it will loose it's fantastic bright color. The face of this ring is 15.3 mm north to south, 10.3 mm across and it sits 8.3 mm off the finger, it is unmarked and has been acid tested as platinum. This The ring weighs 5.3 grams.

For a ring from the 1920s, this blue zircon is in remarkably good condition. Blue zircon is a soft gem and gets abraded very easily. This stone has very crisp facets when looked at with the naked eye, but under extreme magnification, such as a 10x jewelers loupe or a large computer screen, you might notice a very minor bit of flea biting (tiny little chips) along the facet edges. You will notice this on most zircons with any sort of age which haven’t been replaced or re-polished.

If you are looking for that special 'something blue' for your wedding day, look no further, this instant heirloom is sure to have a special place on the fingers of brides in your family for generations to come.
