I don’t think it would be ruined. Try removing the polish with acetone. Stones aren’t terribly porous and I don’t think it’s going to crumble.

There’s no real way of telling what the stone is from pictures. You should take it to a jeweler. I don’t think the nail polish will harm it if it’s a semi-precious or precious stone though.

It’s a very pretty ring!

Bump! Hopefully you find an answer. If the bee’s can’t help, perhaps you should take it to a jeweller to get their opinion and to have it appraised. If nothing else, it would be worth insuring, especially since it is an heirloom.

It’s impossible to tell, I would guess white topaz or white zircon though, just because a lot of white sapphires have inclusions that make the stone appear slightly cloudy. If it’s really old it could also be glass! I doubt it is ruined from the nail polish.

I agree that you have to take it to a trustworthy jeweller and they can tell you what stone it is.

Keep us updated! Acetone should help get the polish off… maybe soak it in there for a whlie for near the prongs.

Good lord! Can you send it in the mail to the gemologist?
