Zircon- December’s Birthstone

You lucky December babies! The zircon birthstone is a delight to wear. Zircons come in many different colors, and our favorites are gold and blue. December’s birthstone is incredibly sparkly too- zircon is the only gemstone other than a diamond to sparkle as brilliantly. Below you see a wonderful Edwardian zircon festoon necklace. Set in silver, this brilliant december birthday gift idea has a zircon weight of 30 carats!
