Dainty Zircon studs in gold Plated settings.
Don’t be confused by the name. Zircon is a natural, magnificent, and underrated gemstone that has been worn and treasured since ancient times. It’s not cubic zirconia. Colorless zircon is called “Matara” zircon after a city in Sri Lanka near where it is mined.
White zircon is the gemstone of the planet Venus and is believed to bring good fortune to those born under the sign of Taurus and Libra.
Since it has been known from antiquity, Zircon has a rich mythology. According to some, Zircon relieves pain and is said to prevent nightmares, ensuring a deep, tranquil sleep. Beyond all of this, Zircon is believed to bestow the wearer with wisdom, honor, and riches.
Zircon is an historic crystal both in terms of man and the earth itself. Named hyacinth or jacinth in the bible, a variety of zircon was one of the 12 stones of Israel mentioned in the bible. Zircon's image has suffered over the years first by its use in its clear form as a cheaper substitute for diamonds and then more recently by getting confused with the man-made diamond substitute, cubic zirconium. This is a shame because the zircon crystals make a beautiful gem covering an array of colors from golden yellows to deep reds, greens and blues and even black.
