So I got a couple of diamond candles for christmas from my mom, and I finally got around to melting the 3rd one! I’ve been spoiled so far, out of the 5 I’ve gotten over the past year, I love them all! However, my fingers are pretty small, so it’s hard to wear some of them :/ I got this purple stone, and it’s absolutley gorgeous, but way too big. My dad and so thinks it might be a real amethyst, but my mom isnt convinced. If it’s a real stone, I’d like to have the ring resized, but I don’t want to pay for an appraisal if it’s probably not real. So, any bees good at spotting genuine stones? Here is the ring (sorry the pic is so huge!)
And a gratuity shot of my favorite diamond candle ring I received- this one actually fits, not sure why I’m holding it like that 😛

That doesn’t look real to me, sorry. No harm in taking it to a jeweler though.
Is the inside of the ring stamped?

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.

@cmbr: It is stamped, but I absolutley cannot make out what it says, we even tried looking under a magnifying glass! If it’s not real I’m sure I’ll find a girlfriend with normal sized fingers willing to take it off my hands!

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.

Ooh pretty! Leave it on for a whole & see if it turns your finger green?

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?

@lavenderstone: Diamond Candles are soy candles that smell delicious and have a hidden ring inside. It’s kind of a toss up what ring style you’ll get, but its guaranteed to be worth at least 10 dollars and can be worth up to 5000 dollars. I love the surprise, and the candles are only 25 bucks!
@Jabberwocky: I’ve looked for rainbows but all I can see are dark purple flashes- kind of exciting! Yours sound gorgeous- do you have a pic of the purple one?
@atreyu547: It’s too big ): it falls right off if I titlt my hand downwards, otherwise I would try that!
@love108: I had no idea I could just take it to a jewlers and they’d tell me! I thought I needed an appraisal. Thanks for the info, I’ll definitley take it by to my local jeweler to get the stone and stamp looked at (:

@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!

Looking at it now, it is very… faceted? The light bounces around inside and its definitley not very cloudy, so it’s most likely not an amthyst! Still, I’m going to take it in on Tuesday and find out what it is (:
@Jabberwocky: Oh, theyre so pretty! The halo one reminds me of a vintage ring. What’s the hot glue resizing method? If I can’t get it resized at the jewelers I really want to try a diy method

@Giraffes: I’d bet that’s definitely not an amethyst. Sorry!
