Tiffany & Co silver ring found today
Slim pickens continue at the badly sanded in beaches here, but this morning I did manage to recover a " PLEASE RETURN TO TIFFANY & CO " silver ring from about a 10" depth in that sanded - in ocean floor.
The ring was down there for quite some time , I think; it was very tarnished and encrusted.
Electrolyzed it and got it clean.
It's a good weight for a silver ring, I think
As to the ring's authenticity, I 'm almost sure , after doing some research on bogus T & C rings, that this ring is authentic, but I'm not a jeweler so I could be wrong.
Also found a site selling an exact replica of this ring ( see pic below), so mystery remains
Possibly the weight of the ring needs to be factored in for considering authenticity vs replica, but not sure on that ,either.
Comments and suggestions on recognizing the authenticity of T & C jewelry are welcomed.
Here's a couple of pics...and a link to this ring on the T & C site...it sells new for $175.00. Do people actually pay all that money for a silver ring?
Thanks for looking
