Seduced by the fire of these brown zircon gemstones, I created dangle earrings allowing the teardrops to move freely and release their radiance with each movement.
Zircon is known for its brilliance and flashes of multicolored light, called fire. These zircon properties are close enough to the properties of diamond to account for centuries of confusion between the two gems.
Handcrafted with recycled 18K yellow gold
Gemstones: natural zircon
Zircon is a natural, magnificent, and underrated gemstone that has been worn and treasured since ancient times. Not to be confused with cubic zirconia, which is synthetic.
Zircon jewellery was trendy during the 1920's, with the discovery of heat treating natural brown Zircon, enabling the incredible blue Zircon to shine through. Nowadays, gemstone-quality Zircon is rare and is being snapped up by collectors.
In the Middle Ages, this gem was thought to induce sound sleep, drive away evil spirits, and promote riches, honor, and wisdom.
