    I had myself a grand morning at the flea markets today! Besides some great silver finds (large Georg Jensen ring) was this ring. I was looking through varied small plastic bags of jewelry and came to a bag of rings. Dumped them all out and proceeded to put each one back in the bag - junk rings. I stopped when I picked up this one. That 750 mark is the European equivalent of 18K. Acid tests, on the touchstone and on the metal itself, confirmed it. I expect all those stones are diamonds. More than 100 of them. Am going to the jeweler tomorrow to have them checked and tested. I PAID 50 CENTS.

    UPDATE: the plot thickens....so far no confirmation on the stones being diamonds, but perhaps White Sapphires. I am going to go to my own jeweler today to see what he says about it. Is it real or is it Memorex? (Oldies here will know what I mean!)

    UPDATE 01/08/2019-------> the stones test as white Sapphires, according to two jewelers. All set by hand. I sold the ring locally on 01/07/2019 for 300 Euro/$332.00.

      I'm a jeweler and studying to get my gemologists certification. Chances are that if they have set stones in 18k gold they will use real diamonds. If your jeweler chargers you to tell the difference I would just go to a pawn shop. They will check for FREE! They have the right tool to tell the difference between diamonds and sapphires. Whites sapphires do not sparkle quite like diamonds, BTW.

      Efesgirl any outcome from your own jeweller ?

    17. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 1 year ago
      A very fair trade. I'm sure they were happy as can be. Loving that.
    18. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 1 year ago
      Yes, we negotiated a good price and she went away happy. Definitely not my kind of ring so was glad to sell it.
