December is a month filled with celebrations, and anyone who knows someone with a birthday around Christmas or New Year’s knows how they can sometimes get overlooked in all the holiday hullaballoo. But not today! Today we’re focusing on gorgeous vintage zircon art deco jewelry, one of December’s three beautiful birthstones (the others, turquoise and tanzanite, we’ll save for another time.).
First up, this incredible 1920s platinum, diamond and zircon ring. Absolutely stunning art deco geometric design in the setting, brilliant glittering diamonds surrounding a bright, clear blue emerald cut zircon. Gorgeous!
Next, this very cool, almost futuristic art deco zircon ring. Set in yellow gold, with a Metropolis-inspired vibe, this antique ring is both lovely, and truly unique. Love it!
Another beautiful gold and zircon find is this stunning bracelet from the 1940s, a perfect mix of warm yellow gold and glittering blue zircon stones.
Next up is this breathtaking beauty from the 1930s, a 6 carat brilliant blue zircon in a perfect, simple, elegant art deco setting:
Alas that beauty has sold, but what about this artisan-crafted, Art Deco inspired ring set in palladium white gold? Also stunning:
Next up is this amazing find, a true vintage Victorian set still in it’s original box, featuring a zircon necklace, ring and earrings set in white gold.
For a slightly different blue hue, take a look at this gorgeous diamond and zircon pendant. It’s got a lovely green shade and a dazzling diamond setting:
Another piece that was sold at auction recently, but still needs to be admired? This lovely Art Deco platinum, blue zircon, and diamond brooch:
Wow! OK, that’s a lot of zircon… wrapping up, we’ll close with these very simple gold zircon earrings. The scalloped center bar is from a vintage watch chain, and the spare setting lets the color of the gemstone truly shine:
Happy Holidays to all, and Happy Birthday to those December-borns!
