sparklesalways :  You’re right about ebay fakes. There are a couple of industry conducted sampling that imply the vast majority of “designer” items on ebay are fakes. (The NYTimes article uses the word “troll” in a weird way)

“When Tiffany filed its suit against eBay in 2004, it said that Tiffany employees had trolled eBay to find fake Tiffany silver jewelry and concluded that 73 percent of 186 pieces they purchased on eBay were counterfeit.”

I stand corrected.. it is stamped PT 950 with a Tiffany and co stamp . I thought I ordered a WG ring .. I will pay more attention to detail as to please the masses . Thanks for the concern because some people do get confused and get counterfeit stuff . 

Either way i love my set and think it is amazing . Hugs to everyone 

i shall go sulk in the shadow of the truly embarrassed now ..😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐😐

thorstedswife :  oh good! Yes it’s platinum that makes sense. It’s not embaressing they’re all white metals. I just didn’t want you to overpay for a counterfeit WG band. Much more fun to overpay for the real deal πŸ™‚ 

plain bands are elegant IMO especially when paired with a blingy ring.

thorstedswife :Β  I totally understand you!!, when my Fiance gave me my ering (Tiffany soleste) he told me it was white gold, but upon closer inspection the band clearly has a PT950 stamped on it, I didn’t know what it standed for and was curious so one day I googled it and found out that it meant the metal was platinum, but since all Tiffany erings I’ve seen have that I thought it meant something else. Anyways now I’m curious if the sales lady told him it was WG or if he just assumed it. I haven’t asked him tho haha, but it’s real!! You can just go on thinking you have one metal when in reality the truth is engraved right there but you just don’t know it!Β
