Size

An exquisite vintage Art Deco white zircon solitaire ring. The zircon is round brilliant cut and measures 2 carats in the setting, it is colorless and bright white with absolutely no color cast. This is a fabulous gemstone super sparkly with all the appearance of a good diamond. Zircons have extraordinary fire, they display double refraction giving the illusion of even more facets than they possess.

Dating to the 1930s the gemstone is claw set in a high crown style rex mount. The ring is rendered in 9ct yellow gold and sterling silver. it is a two tone ring, silver at the crown mount and at the shoulders with the band at the back solid 9ct yellow gold. This a technique sometimes seen in older rings when a full gold setting might reflect an undesirable yellow cast on colorless gemstones. The band has a flat profile with slender nipped shoulders at the front which allows the stone to showcase even more.

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.
