    Certainly is a cool looking ring and really an unusual design.

    Doubt it's 24K, but very high karat though..

    Hi guys thanks for your replies
    it was tested for gold and the jeweller said it is up to 24 carat gold,
    the stone is not a diamond but the jeweller suggested that it probably was before and got lost hence the diamond was replaced by the stone you see
    there are no markings anywhere on the ring
    it was found detecting in the sea in the Mediterranean 10 meters away from the beach

    I hear that. The tone is 14K, and the rock looks real. Wonder if the jeweler 'took a couple extra minutes' in the back room 'testing' the stone. The 'ole switcheroo..

    always get 2 or 3 other opinions if possible - I have found 22 k with small stones
    wedding band I posted is 24k - cant tell by pic but it is out of round because of softness
    as far as the stone - I found a ring long ago and was told by first 2 jewelers I took it to - stone was fake
    1st place told me the metal was junk also - it was marked inside with a P inside a diamond - was a late 1800s
    platinum mark which they did not know
    when 2nd place said metal was platinum - but stone was fake - I thought that was weird - ring was obviously old
    why would they put fake in platinum ?
    I took to a 3rd place and guy had degrees on the wall that he went to college for gemology - he looked at under microscope
    and told me it was an old cut diamond and that the guy that cut this diamond - his last cut made the diamond sparkle white
    instead of the rainbow we see in most diamonds now a days - the stamp helped him place its making in the late 1800s - early 1900s
    this guy sent me to guy that buys old diamonds and I sold the stone for like $750 - that was a like 25 yrs ago
    so helps in getting other opinions sometimes - if it was a small questionable ring - but a ring like that - i'd get other opinions
    good luck
    oh - another antique ring I found which I was sure had a diamond (I have a tester now)
    and also told was junk stone - turned out stone is white sapphire
    not as valuable as a diamond but better than a CZ or glass

    Is this a joke? If so, you should edit and put a smiley face. That post was obviously talking about the woman picture...

    Very nice ring. Im not sure it’s 24K

    I enlarged the photos for better resolution . The color is off for me . Also 24K is super soft. It should have more deep scratches rather then small non deep surface ones. One impact on the ring tells me that the gold is not soft enough to be 24K. It resisted the impact ver well that’s an indication of a stronger alloy in the mix.

    The only 100% true test is the acid test.

    Good Luck
