    costume jewelry or old??

    Hello all,

    I was going through my finds for the year and thought I would try to get some info on this ring. I had not noticed it was sterling silver. This is from a fairly old park/home site that dates to the early 1800's. curious if this is actually old or just costume jewelry? What is the black stone (just plastic?))

    Thanks for having a look.

    The small stones appear to be glued on. Looks like costume jewelry. Its beautiful. The stone in the middle is most likely real. HTH

    Re: costume jewelry or old??

    Your ring is probably real - and costume jewelry that is worth money - those little stones were made in the early 1900's -

    It was called "paste stones", (yours looks like the multi-colored variety) and definitely vintage. If the band has any markings, you may be able to actually date it, and find out the maker.

    Here is one with onyx and NOT the multi-colored, but still paste stones.

    Its probably from the 70's and its most likely Enamel work and not Onyx I have a whole tray of Sterling rings with a few that are like that one with the same black stone and Marcasite Stones.

    Its probably onyx stone. Such jewelry was used before 1900's. I think it is not costume jewelry but an old jewelry.

    Looks like onyx. Without testing or seeing any marks etc. I'd say it was around late 1940s, comparing it to others I've acquired in lots. Google up Jewelry 101 and have a look at her book. Check the links there's a lot of good leads there to ID jewelry and periods.
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    I think I know what my last words will be....
