    That doesn’t look real to me, sorry. No harm in taking it to a jeweler though.

    Is the inside of the ring stamped?

    @Giraffes:  

    @cmbr:  +1

    OP, if it’s real the inside will be stamped at least 10k.

    I thought if a gem in a diamond candle was real, the metal was real and would be stamped.  If there is no stamp on the ring I would assume it was not a real gemstone.

    The stamp will tell you everthing. However, you won’t need an appraisal to find out what kind of stone it is. You should be able to take it to a jeweler and just ask. THey should be able to read the stamp, too. Appraisal is for monetary value.

    Are there any rainbows in the sparkle?  If so, not an amethyst.

    Those candles are a lot of fun. I got a super sparkly purple CZ out of one.  And a really not shiny halo thing out of the other.

    I must be living under a rock, but what are Diamond Candles? Never heard of them! They have jewelry inside?

    @Giraffes:  Oh I want to know now! It looks a bit off for some reason to me, maybe it’s the color? I’ve never seen one like like that in person although it looks similiar in color to this real amethyst I found online.

    @Giraffes:  Here’s both of them. They’re both huge. I was able to resize the purple one with hot glue, but it wouldn’t stick on the white one.

    @AlwaysSunny:  that cut looks more like a gem stone cut than the OP

     

    FWIW no I don’t think so, it looks glassy and gem stones are typically a tad bit cloudier in my experience. But if you go for the appraisal update us!
