Zircon Ring by Rebecca Overmann
This classic ring by Rebecca Overmann features a center 2.48 carat cushion cut zircon in a lush pink with a sherry overtone. Prongs become a sculptural element as they “V” to the base of the setting, and integrate beautifully into the 14k yellow gold in a matte finish. White diamonds are flush-set into tiny pave prongs down the shoulders of the band. This zircon was unheated when purchased rough in Tanzania. 10% of the purchase of this ring goes to primary and trade schools in Tanzania and Kenya.

This zircon center gem was purchased as a rough gemstone directly from Tanzania. Zircon is a remarkably versatile gemstone occurring in a multitude of hues and from a variety of locations all over the world. Zircon gems from Tanzania range from a pastel peachy pink to pinkish lavender to a rich garnet-like red. In their rough state, they look a little like dirty rocks, but feel heavy in the hand and sometimes reveal a glimpse of their pink or red interiors. In a skilled cutters hands, they can take the doubly-refractive nature of zircon and make it dazzle the eyes with its brilliance. Some zircon is a very dark red-brown as it comes out of the ground in East Africa, and can be heated to achieve a lighter pink to peachy sherry hue. This is a permanent treatment and will be disclosed in the description for each ANZA Gems piece of jewelry.
