Zircon and Diamond Hoop-style and Dangle Earrings in 18 KT White Gold

$7,900.00

Product Description

The exquisite greenish-blue zircons in this pair of earrings will be the envy of everyone with whom you come in contact. Their uniquely bold color is intensified when paired with dozens of glimmering white diamonds and set in white gold.  These earrings are designed to showcase the extraordinary zircons so they reflect light and sparkle brilliantly as you move. Not to be confused with cubic zirconia, a zircon stone is a fiery, transparent gemstone which has been around for centuries and was particularly popular in Victorian times. 

 

GORDON'S DESIGN NOTES:

"When visiting the shop of my trusted supplier, Darvesh, in Bangkok, I was immediately struck by the unusual color of these zircon gemstones. The hint of green in the brilliant blue hue, coupled with the fire in the stones captivated me. I knew immediately I had to create a design that allowed these gemstones to stand out and not allow the eye to be distracted away."                                                                        Design input by Allison.

Other Details

Care:
Protect your jewelry from impact against hard surfaces and avoid contact with abrasive surfaces. All gemstones, including diamonds, can chip, scratch, or abrade under the right circumstances.
Care Specifics:
Zircon is particularly vulnerable to hard blows, so do not subject them to rough wear, such as during sports and workouts. Avoid extended exposure to bright sunlight. Also avoid ultrasonic and steam cleaning.
Care Specifics Continued:
With wear, rhodium plating can thin to the point where a yellowish tinge may show through. Periodic re-coating with rhodium will revive the original bright white color. Re-plating does not damage the gemstones.
Cleaning:
The best method for cleaning all your jewelry is to soak each item in a mixture of lukewarm water and gentle dish washing liquid followed by a very light cleaning with a soft child’s toothbrush.
Additional Cleaning Instructions:
Place the item(s) in a fine mesh strainer and rinse to remove the soap. Gently place each item on a lintfree cloth and softly pat them dry. See the Care and Cleaning Section of the Website for a more detailed explanation.
