zircon ring

0 votes

I just bought a blue zircon ring off ebay. The seller says it is a Victorian blue zircon and all around it, there are point old cut diamonds. I haven't received it yet but I want to know if I can actually wear it alot. I have never really heard of zircon but since I have won it, I have been doing research on zircon and everything I have found says it can crack easily and shouldn't be worn everyday. I wanted to wear it like a wedding ring, my real wedding ring doesn't fit too well anymore and this ring I just bought is even prettier than my wedding ring. Does zircon really crack and scratch that easily? Can I not wear it everyday?

Zircon is very hard and is therefore very difficult to scratch. However, it is brittle and can chip or crack if banged too hard, so it is probably not a good idea to wear it every day.
