The ring has a few little crustaceans on it that I need advice on how to clean.

    Doubt they are real on a 10k, but one way to tell ... exhale on the stones to "fog them up". Glass will fog up easily.. real stones hard to fog.

    You might consider picking up a cheap diamond tester. I have one I got off of amazon and it works great once you figure out the chinese instructions.

    Do the cheap diamond testers on ebay work, worth the $15 investment?
