At first when I saw it was green I thought beryl. It could also be a sapphire. The most common type of yellow stone is citrine. 

Can you upload betterpic or say more about the metal it is set in?

majorairhead:  It’s difficult to tell from a picture. I sold fine jewelry for years, based only on your photo I would guess it’s a Citrine, which is a natural gemstone. I doubt very much that it is a yellow diamond, it would refract more light if it were. Based purely on your pictures of course,

ETA: It could very well be cut glass. That would not be uncommon for the era. Lovely ring either way!

If that’s gold and the setting is old and the stone has been in it all along, I’m thinking sapphire. Let us know!

If it’s a diamond, it would have some rainbows in the sparkle.  If it’s more of a glowy shine, probably yellow sapphire or citrine.

I think sapphire, it looks nothing like my citrine.

majorairhead:  unfortunately I can’t upload pics. WB needs a regular comp and I just have my phone and a transformer tablet. But my citrine is much more ambery.

Maybe a yellow topaz, but also quite likely well cut glass.

It does not look like a yellow diamond to my eye. Still a pretty ring though.

Citrines are usually more orange. I second what others have said about sapphire, topaz and glass. Only a gemologist will really be able to tell you, though.

I had to go to several Jewlers for them to identify my yellow sapphire. I would go to a gemologist, thats where I had the most luck and they were very helpful!
