Zircon is pastel blue in color with light greenish overtones, but some exceptional gems have a bright
blue color. This gemstone is not very well known to jewelry buyers,
which is a shame as it is quite beautiful. In the middle ages, the gemstone was said to aid sleep,
bring prosperity, and promote honor and wisdom in its owner.
Zircon is one of the heaviest
gemstones, which means that is will look smaller than other varieties of
the same carat weight. Jewelry with the Zircon gemstones should be stored
carefully because though it is relatively hard it can suffer from
scratches and facets can be chipped.

Unique and Custom creations are Voyagers specialty -
unlike most jewelers,
we do all work in house and are able to work with existing pieces to
make them "new" again from a good cleaning and polishing to adding
stones or reusing a part of the old design to create a new piece. This
ability to create brand new from scratch, innovative designs, to reusing
and redesigning existing pieces allows Voyagers to be your personal and
full service jewelers. We do free estimates for any design.
always, we recommend that you regularly have your jewelry checked &
inspected. We can do that while you wait ... as well as keep
your jewelry sparkling & clean.....
After cleaning, we
will check for any missing stones; inspect each stone for
tightness; and look for chips, nicks and breakage.
Prongs, shanks and mountings will be inspected for wear and cracks.
If repairs are needed, we will make suggestions and discuss possible
options with you.
