December is here, which means winter is close at hand. Nothing captures the color of this season quite like the steely blue sparkle of blue zircon. Possessing a refractive index higher than even diamond, this exquisite gemstone is perfect in a necklace, earrings, or a ring. Our Petunia is one great example. Available in white […]
