In direct response to the poster who cautioned this Question Poser, I think the other girls have rightly pointed out that the question was obviously meant to discern a real diamond from yes, a FAKE one.  And FAKE is not a dirty word. 

This Board has simply got to grow up.  And don’t flag me for personal attacks, cuz this is for the entire board.  Stop the knee jerk, childish reactions to posts you don’t like.  And I am not being snarky, I am rightly pointing out a fake diamond is just that — an unreal diamond.  Or would it go over more smoothly if we all called it a a “faux” diamond? 

For the record:  I think it’s a phony (dear lord, yet another bad word).  It looks too cloudy to be real, imo, but I am certainly not a jeweler.  Pretty nonetheless.

@Baron:  they prefer “simulant” which is synonmous with imitation..which is synonmous with fake. I dont know why it gets people so upset either.

I’m glad it’s white sapphire! Sapphires are great and I’m sure it’ll look really good when it’s cleaned up =)

@Mamalk85:  Thanks for updating us!

I didn’t know if the center stone was real or not, but the setting looked “Real” to me and baby, that ain’t cheap. Retail it would be, what, $2,000?

I didn’t know that they made settings like this decades ago. I look at a fair number of vintage rings and can usually name the decade it was made.. This one looks so modern (well, modern vintage style.)

It is really, really, pretty, and it is a ring that I’d treasure because I like white sapphires and pretty settings like this one.

@Mamalk85:  beautiful ring. I was going to say to make sure she wrote and signed something saying that she gave you the ring as a gift in case family tried to cause drama over it. I can only imagine if drama came from whether the stone was real or fake on this site what type of crap family would cause in real life. But then I went back at one of your beginning posts and saw you mentioned that she has no family. This was a lovely gift to have received. She sounds like a lovely lady!

@Mamalk85:  ooooh, natural white sapphires are a good thing!  very nice. did you find out what the metal is? I’m guessing gold. it’s not very common for diamonds to be set in silver – but it does happen.
