Zircon mounted jewellery can be found in a wide range of colours, the most popular colour is blue, usually a pastel blue, but some exceptional gemstones have a bright blue colour. Collectors enjoy the search for all possible colours and variations. Natural zircon is an earthy brown colour and rare to find, the reason why most zircons on the market today are heat treated.
Colour and clarity are the most important things to consider when zircons are being evaluated and they should have a very good lustre.
