A deep red Tanzanian zircon is the star of this Valerie Madison half bezel ring. Valerie is particularly masterful at super clean designs, and this half bezel perfectly follows the lines of the blocked corners of the custom cut gem. The alloy shade of the 14k yellow gold complements the vivid red zircon with a peachy overtone. The band features a brushed finish on the top surface, but the bezel and profile of the ring are high polish to emphasize the brilliance of the zircon.
Zircon is the oldest mineral on earth and appears in an array of colors such as yellow, red, brown, peach and blue. Known for its brilliance and strong “fire” or multi-colored flashes of light, it sure to catch people’s attention in any piece of jewelry. Zircon is an alternative birthstone for the month of December.
As always, this ring makes a difference in the gem communities of East Africa by funding at least 10% of the purchase to primary and trade schools.
