I had posted this a few months ago. I finally got around to taking it to the jewelers along with a few other pieces that I thought might have potential. I was very surprised to find out that the outside frame is composed of twelve tiny single cut diamonds set in 10k white gold . It is marked 10K and I knew that it was gold, but diamonds...really !! The chain is also very fine and 10K white gold. The center larger stone is possible a blue topaz but he wasn't a 100% sure. The whole pendant is about the size of a penny but oval. I was floored because I only paid a couple dollars for this ! My little silver rings I posted earlier also turned out to be rubies, opals, and freshwater pearls. Even the itty bitty .08 carat diamond and gold engagement ring was a flawless stone ! None of these are worth huge amounts because of their size but a couple hundred here and there can really add up. I'm amazed !! -Mike-

    Thanks Katherine and Karen.... I've got another bag full of goodies to get checked out. Maybe tomorrow. This jeweler and I really clicked and he seemed genuinely interested in what I was showing him even if it wasn't real and answering my questions. Very nice man. I met his Mom at Salvation and we talk occasionally. She was my referral . Just a very nice family run business . :)
