BLUEBERRY ZIRCON

Zircon is the oldest mineral on earth, dating back 4.4 billion years. Its name comes from the Persian “Zargun”, which meaning golden color. Zircons can survive geological processes like erosion, transport, and even high-grade metamorphosis; as a result, they contain a rich and varied record of these processes, adding to their unique allure. There are many colors of Zircon including yellow, orange, brown, green, red and blue, the latter of which Le Vian® has chosen to introduce as Blueberry Zircon, its newest gemstone flavor.

Le Vian® Blueberry Zircon can only be found in Cambodia, is chosen from the top of production and displays a unique blue color with green tones, which sometimes causes it to be mistaken for a Paraiba Tourmaline. It is a very highly refractive gem with a hardness of 7.5 and a vitreous luster.

Blueberry Zircon has the unique characteristic of being double reflective which means you see twice as many facets and twice as much fire. Larger sizes of Blueberry Zircon are extremely rare, almost nonexistent, with only 5 or less pieces of 30 carats or more discovered in the last year. Le Vian® is popularizing this ancient and rare gem as a salute to its 2017 Color of the Year, Blues.

“Blueberry Zircon is cut to Le Vian’s exacting standards and displays a unique blue color. They have a very high dispersion of light and high refractive indices giving them very high brilliance.”

VANILLA DIAMONDS®

The journey of a diamond in the rough to the sparkling diamond design you love is a fascinating story, one that began billions of years ago, deep within the earth where a diamond has formed under extreme heat and pressure. Its ascent from its natural home is forced by nature or man where it is then cleaved, cut and polished revealing its natural beauty. Diamonds are the hardest material on earth and the only gem that is composed of only one element, carbon.

Vanilla Diamonds® are specially selected to adorn Le Vian® designs – from breathtaking one-of-a-kind red carpet favored designs in Vanilla Gold® to the trendsetting combination of Strawberry ‘N Vanilla® featuring the blushing hue of Strawberry Gold® topped with Vanilla Diamonds®.
