    Today I found out that this ring isn't real it's plated. The markings clearly say 18k/750. The xterra 705's gold range is 4-18. When it read 28 I should have known better. Guess I will have to save my happy dance for another day

    It gets the heart pumping anyway. Better luck next time.
    When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

    Wait a minute! 18K is 750 or 75% gold and who said the 705's gold range is only 4 to 18. At 11 grams a 28, I'm surprised it doesn't read even higher!
    I have 14K rings that are smaller and read into the 20's,

    Highly doubt that ring is plated
    18k - 750
    that ring doesn't look plated
    u cannot go by what the detector reads it at
    I have a heavy 18k ring I found that reads high too
    I'm sure the pro's here will tell u the same thing
    acid test it
