@Zhabeego:  LOL no shit. I was more commenting on the bullshit and incredibly crass/snobby idea that a clear stone is either a diamond or “fake.”

Definitely take it to a jeweler and they will be able to test the stones and metal to see what the ring is made from.

@Mamalk85:  no, plating will not change the markings.  if it had a stamp and a jeweler did some work on it that caused it to come off, they would very likely re stamp it when they finished. or it’s possible that your neighbor wore the ring so much the stamp got worn off. but she said she was going to get it replated in gold — the thing is, there is no need to gold plate a ring if it’s already gold or platinum.

if you can’t find any stamps, it’s very likely that it’s a costume ring. sorry! but I’m glad you love it, and like you said it’s very special to you so that’s  all that counts.

Alright, so I said something that you all don’t like in this topic… or more precisely some of you didn’t read thoroughly (my first reply)

I did preface it with nice remarks…

I welcomed the New Bee to the Hive, and I did explain that the info I was giving was for “future reference”… I was also the 14th post on this topic (20 Hours ago)… and one of the first to explain (mine being the most indepth) WHY the word FAKE is offensive to some members of WBee.

I have not been the last in that regard… as it is a very valid element of this Website… some Bees don’t have Diamonds.  Period.

The OP and I seem to be fine with each other… anotherwords, she took the post as I intended it… a heads up.

There was nothing personal snarky or attacking to the OP.

What went on on Page 2 on this thread.. I am not proud of, it started with a very pointed jab at me… so I have asked the Mods to remove my comment.

I think it’s a diamond but if it’s not maybe it’s a cubic zirconia given the age of the ring? I think that was more available back in the day compared to the wider variety of clear stones out now.

Only on WB does all of this drama surrounding the word “fake” exist, not in the real world. Most people outside of WB don’t even know what moissanite is to be able to walk on eggshells about it. The question was basically “is this CZ or diamond?” and come on, CZs are diamond simulants. They just are. This is OP’s first post, I can’t believe she’s expected to know WB’s unspoken “rules” about discussing “clear stones”.

  @vorpalette:  Your use of the word “crass” was pretty ironic, given the context.. Foot in Mouth

@starla:  or maybe we’re all just big old cyber bullies for calling a cz a diamond sim Cry

I’d say it is probably CZ or white sapphire because it does look cloudy, but it’s entirely possible it’s just a diamond that hasn’t been cleaned!

@Mamalk85:  I’m  guessing it’s costume.  It’s really pretty regardless.
