@Mamalk85: In some pictures it looks like a diamond, in others, not so much. If you can, take a black pen and make a small dot on a white piece of paper. Hold the ring so the top of the stone is down- as if you were using it like a magnifying glass. If you can make out the dot it’s not a real diamond. You might be able to see a vague dark mark- which is the diamond breaking up the dot, in theory. CZ or glass or anything like that will just magnigy the dot!

@MeiFrancis: ehhhhh- my grandma is really into costume jewlery. it’s not as if she would try to pass it off as real diamonds, but she’d totally give me something like this for fun, even if it wasn’t real

Is it really necessary for all the “it looks like a real ring” comments?
I mean come on… everyone knows what OP is asking. Not everyone is well versed on what specific diamond simulants are out there. She obviously just wants to know if it’s a real diamond or not.

I have no idea, but I’m looking forward to what the jeweler says! Keep us posted 😀

@Mamalk85: does it have a stamp on the inside? at least you could determine if the setting is sterling, gold, etc. a super cheap metal ring will likely not have a stamp at all.
if it’s silver, it’s likely not real diamonds. if it’s gold or platinum, then it might be worth taking to a jeweler for an assesment!
it’s very pretty, by the way.

@nerdybird: I’m not able to find any stampings however a while back when I commented on it (she wore it almost daily) she said her late husband bought it for her and she was going to have it re plated in gold. Would that explain the non markings? I don’t want to go ask her all these questions because we’ll that’s rude. And regardless of diamond or not it’s the fact that she wanted me to have it. So it’s special in that way to me 🙂

Wow, some people got testy! Everyone knows what she means. Is it a real diamond or not, and I think that is a very valid question. I don’t know why anyone would get offended with this post.

I dunno, but it sure is pretty!

Seriously!! I didn’t know there were so many secret rules about what you are and are not allowed to say or post! Quite frankly, I don’t think I’d be insulted reading the post/question even if my diamond was a “fake”, I mean if someone isn’t happy that their stone isn’t “real” that’s their problem. Jeeeez. But do let us know when you find out, it is beautiful! 🙂

It definitely could be a diamond…just a lower clarity one?
