December Birthday Bling
2019 is almost over, so it’s time to sit back and learn about December’s birthstone! This month calls the beautiful blue zircon its birthstone. Like every birthstone, blue zircon has a history and is believed to hold special powers for its wearer – no matter when they were born!
A Brief Zircon History
Zircon is known as one of the oldest minerals to exist – in fact, it’s almost as old as the earth! The positivity that surrounds zircon can be traced all the way back to the Middle Ages. Hundreds of years ago, this gemstone was worn to help with sleep and was thought to increase wisdom.
Our December Birthday Bling features a gorgeous blue zircon stone, but did you know that natural zircon is usually brown? Brown zircon is often heat-treated to create that stunning blue color, just like November’s birthstone, topaz!
Why You Should Wear Zircon
Even today, zircon is thought to have positive effects on its wearer. This gem is often worn to aid with the loss of a loved one, such as a family member or pet. Blue zircon in particular is believed to strengthen relationships and build self-confidence.
For centuries, zircon was used as treatment for various health issues, and in modern times, it is still believed to soothe different pains. The gem can be worn to alleviate stomach cramps, asthma, and even menstrual cramps.
Zircon & Handmarks
Blue zircon is the perfect pair to any Handmark that was inspired by a loved one. To strengthen your relationship with a family member, friend, or pet, Handmark their name onto a tag and pair it with the zircon gemstone. You could also include an Angel Wing or Four-Legged Best Friend charm! If you’re looking to inspire self-confidence, use zircon with a Handmarked phrase that encourages you.
Here are some ideas for what to Handmark with our December Birthday Bling charm, blue zircon!
