I see their eyes go past the tourmalines, past the emeralds, past the sapphires and stop on “the blue”. “Oh, what’s that?” Then the necklace is on. “I love the color!” The jewel floats on her neck. It will be hers, and we’ve never even said the name of the gem. The December birthstone never looked like this. It’s zircon (5.44cts), and the diamonds are .016cts total weight. The gold work is a mix of planes and forms in 18K white, 18K yellow and 24K gold. It’s art and fashion. Oh, yes!
