This stone is RARE and REAL...NOT Cubic Zirconia, but Canary Yellow Zircon.
Zircon comes in a variety of colors. Clear zircon is often mistaken for diamonds due to their highly refractive and light dispersive quality.
Blue zircon are frequently mistaken for blue diamonds, the yellow, a canary diamond. They actually "sparkle" more than a very high quality diamond!
Zircon became popular in the 16th century with Italian artisans using this stone in jewelry design. In the 18th century the blue zircon was widely used in Victorian pieces.
Zircon is a 6.5-7.5 on the Moh's hardness scale and is extremely refractive in it's ability to disperse light.
It rates 1.81-2.02 on the refractive index guide.
This ring is beautifully carved and the diamond work really sets this vibrant yellow zircon off in its mounting. It's currently a size 6, and can be resized up or down 2 full sizes by an experienced jeweler.
The zircon is 1.45 carats. The diamonds are fine quality, fully cut, and weigh in at .25 carats. The mounting weighs 4.76 grams and is hall marked and tested at 14 karat white gold.
If you want a vibrant canary diamond look at a fraction of the price, this is it.
