If it is in sterling silver it probably isn’t a diamond. It may be glass or a CZ! That doesn’t make t any less pretty and fun tho!

more then likely it’s plated gold over sterling with cubic zirconia…very pretty though! Like others have said, it doesn’t hurt to take it to a jeweler and have them tell you exactly what it is.

There’s no way that’s a diamond if it’s in a plated setting. It also looks like a rather large stone, which, if real, would cost a whole bunch of $$.

 

And unless your great grandmother bought it way later on in life, it probably actually belonged to grandma. Until the 1920s and early 30s, diamonds were cut with chunkier facets and culets. That cut is more like the 50s-80s style.

Are you trying to sell it? Or just wear it. If youre not trying to sell it, just enjoy it for what it is! A piece of your family’s collection. Wear it for fun 🙂 and enjoy the sparklies.
