My mom recently told me that she has a ring for me that belonged to my late grandmother. It is an eternity band with what looks like diamonds. I am so happy to have this sentimental keepsake, but as a jewelry lover I am curious if the ring is real diamonds. I plan to wear the ring regardless of if the stones or real or not, but I would still like to figure out if they are real or not. Any suggestions on how to figure this out? If I take it into a jewelery shop will they be able to tell me even though the ring was not purchased from their shop?

Most jewlery stores will be able to appraise it for you, most will charge a small fee (I think I paid about 30 bucks).
But if it’s on your hand, it’s likely a real ring :p

Just bring the ring into a jeweler and ask them to diamond test it. They do that for free.

The stones are real. Your question is if they are diamonds. Every jeweler should have a little machine that shines a light into the stone to tell if it is diamond. They shouldn’t charge you for this. It takes 10 seconds. If you want a formal appraisal, that does usually cost a small fee.
