Vintage Retro Zircon Brooch

This vintage Retro blue zircon brooch is crafted in two-tone 14k yellow and rose gold, weighs 6.2g and measures 55mm long, 19mm wide and 5mm deep. Characterizing the impressive design of the Retro jewelry style and the application of bi-tone gold as precious metal, this alluring Retro brooch was designed as an articulated ribbon-bow, with intricate yellow gold ribboned swirls at both ends. A significant 2.30ct round faceted blue zircon displaying the gemstone's inherent double refraction constitutes the absorbing 'bow-knot', mounted within a yellow gold setting on color-contrasting rose gold base. The sparkling azure gemstone measures 6.96mm in diameter and is graded 'vivid aqua-blue' color and 'very good' clarity. This vintage Retro blue zircon and bi-tone gold brooch secures with a hinged pin and a C-hook.

Certain gemstones, primarily zircon in all its varieties, have more than one refractive index, which is the degree to which a beam of light is bent when passing through a gemstone. This is because they belong to crystal systems that have atomic structures causing a ray of light to be resolved into two rays, known as 'double refraction' and the reason close-up pictures of zircon appear 'fuzzy'. It is interesting to note that zircon possesses the highest degree of double-refraction (1.800 to 1.950) amongst all gemstones discovered to the present day. The 'fuzzy' lines discernible in the close-up picture of this brooch are the effect of such 'double refraction'.
