Not sure what I got
I found this while medal detecting at our cabin. My educated guess is that it has been in the ground for 50+ years. I initially thought that it was some kind of kidís plastic pin or broach but after I brought it home and cleaned it up it I found that it is either real or made of glass. Has anyone ever seen anything like this? I have only been detecting for about a week so I am new to this.
Thanks for the help

I would take it to a jeweler an have the stones checked out. Otherwise, I would say that that is a pretty nice find.

It's next to impossible to tell if stones are real or not nowadays simply by looking at a picture. Usually you can tell if the band is real gold or silver then the stones most likely are but you can't be certain until you take it to a jeweler and find out for sure. The ring should have some hallmark on the inside if it's gold or silver.

Looks like early 1900s costume jewelry to me.
