    I found this ring at our local Sunday flea market about 4 months ago.
    It was in a display of costume jewelery the man was selling for 2.00 each. The vivid green of the stone caught my eye so I picked it up and examined it furtherI thought to myself that this must be a true emerald as that is my birth stone for May.The metal was unmarked so I assumed it was maybe Sterling silver so I made my 2.00 purchase On the way home we stopped at the coin show where my good friend is s dealer in precious metals .He has this 20.000 gun that he tests the silver and gold with. So he tested this ring for me and offered me 400.00 scrap price for it.The silver ring turned out to be a heavy platinum setting with a 4 1/2 caret Columbian emerald
    Surrounded by a picture frame of diamonds .Needless to say I didn't take him up on his offer.

      Thank you
      I am blessed with the ability of finding nice things for very little money .Half the fun is researching them as well.

      Amazing!!! To the Hunter goes the spoils! Did you clean it up? If not, might be platinum.

      Oh, sorry, somehow I missed the heavy platinum comment.

      Simply too good to be true. Was the 4 1/2 caret measured or estimated?
    9. Junkman60 Junkman60, 5 years ago
      Good morning!!! I was in shock when I found this ring too.I took It to my good friend that deals in precious metals and is a gemologist as well.He estimated the
      Size of the Emerald as you would have to ruin the setting to take it out and measure it properly .
