Sneads, was it the pawn shop that told you the stones are fake? If so you might want to get a second opinion. Some of them will lie to you about what you really have.

Thats the plan, im going to save up my finds for a while and take them to a legit jewlery store and get them all checked at once.

Sneads, that was a very nice day's work. I am fortunate to have a very honest and transparent coin and jewelry exchange in my community. They work with your stuff right there in front of you, explaining as they go, and pay just under spot as calculated and weighed while you watch.

yea, he did everything in a back room an offered me just over 50% spot. plus i am thingking about saving up a bunch and maybe getting something custom made with all the melt.

Well done Sneads!!

I took a large 14K ring to a pawn store once. He did everything in front of me, said it weighed 3 penny weights, & offered me $100 for it. I declined. Later, in another local city, I took it to another pawn broker (same pawn chain, different store). He also weighed it right in front of me. He said it weighed 6 penny weights, offered me $200 for it. My guess on the weight of it was around what he offered. I took the $200. I think the second place was just more honest (prob still not 100% honest, but enough that I agreed). So it never hurts to get a second or third opinion.
Congrats on your finds!
