Description

Absolutely incredible natural zircon solitaire engagement ring. To say this ring creates an impression is an understatement and we weren't surprised to find it bearing a London 1980s hallmark, the decade of showboating opulence and wealth!

This exquisite zircon gemstone measures at least 2 carats in the setting and is colorless and bright white with absolutely no color cast and clean clarity. This is a rare gemstone indistinguishable from a top quality diamond except is has even more brilliance and incredible sparkle, zircons have extraordinary fire, they display double refraction giving the illusion of even more facets than they possess.

The zircon is a round brilliant cut and it is allowed to take centre stage within its elegant unobtrusive 9ct gold setting. A crown of 8 claws hold the stone high allowing the maximum passage of light and the band is nipped at the shoulders widening to a slender flat band at the back of the ring.

A breathtaking vintage solitaire engagement ring, absolutely stunning! Zircons are thought to bring wealth and they are the birthstone for December. An ancient natural gemstone - not to be confused with the modern lab created synthetic cubic zirconia - it is the oldest mineral known to man and has been prized for millennia because of its natural sparkle and beauty.

We do our utmost to accurately date and describe our jewelry. We use a variety of techniques, testing and observation. All precious metals are tested whether hallmarked or not. We use electronic testing equipment (Auracle & Misar) and acid testing. Colored gemstones are tested with the Presidium Duo Tester and diamonds with the Diamond Selector II. We use industry standard gauges and digital calipers for measuring gemstones. When we have jewelry appraised we use independent gemologists and appraisers that have no vested interest in the value of our inventory.
