    zircon is not a “forever” stone and will show wear and need replacing eventually.  especially in a ring.

    waitndehydrate:  Zircons are fine in a ring. They’re more durable than opals or pearls, and you see those in rings all the time. Just don’t go digging bare-handed in a gravel pit with it.

    My engagement ring is a CZ and I have had no issues… I’ve bee  wearing it non stop since June…. and I do alot with my hands even car work and yard work. The only thing I have noticed is she seems to get dirty quite easily…. so I clean it once a week in a “delicate” formula cleaner. 

     

    I chose CZ before I knew about moissy, because I already knew I didn’t want a diamond. Someday I might upgrade to a moissy but I’m happy with my CZ!

    emilyjean89:  Zircon and CZ aren’t the same thing, just fyi. 

    OP, Zircon would be fine in a ring as long as its not daily wear and you aren’t too rough with it. Its fairly soft compared to other stones, but like a PP said, there are softer things that are made into rings so its really up to you.

    emilyjean89:  I too assumed it was just some new hip word for Cubic zirocnia haha!

     

    OP, I think a ring would be fine, but with the color I would loooove it in a pendant! But it’s you wearing it! It’ll be beautiful either way.
