Hand fabricated from 14k yellow gold, this statement solitaire features a 3.86ct natural and untreated Tanzanian zircon in a honey champagne shade. The sparkling cushion cut gem is set in a sturdy chalice setting with four clawed prongs reaching over a polished gold halo to secure it in place. It sits atop the signature memento mori bone patterned band, giving an antique and moody twist to the airy softness of the twinkling zircon.
For the bride who wants something off the beaten path, but still feminine, classic, and ready to be passed down through generations, this ring would make a one of a kind engagement ring.
Zircon has a hardness of 7.5. Not to be confused with cubic zirconia (or "CZ"), it is a naturally occurring gemstone. Because of its high refractive index (the gemological explanation for "fire") it is and has been used as a diamond alternative mostly in its colorless form. It is often seen in vintage and antique jewelry in blue, a color created by gentle heat treatment.

The uniqueness of the stone and hand fabricating at each step, makes this ring a one of a kind piece. But don't hesitate to contact me for information about current and potential gem inventory.
