Todays finds about .36 cents in clad and a woman’s ring marketed .925 with what appears to be 0.02ct diamonds. It’s a size 7. Registered a 86-87 on the XpD2 TID
I know its .925 by markings and Diamond tester says diamonds but they’re small and I could be hitting the sides of the setting (silver). It was worth being rained on and almost struck by lightning 🤪😳

Nice! What would make you think that testing silver would give a positive diamond indication? My guess is that you did test the stone, otherwise you would for sure get a negative indication.
Grats and thanks for the share.

It states in the directions of the Diamond tester that if it hits metal it could come back a false positive.

You would think whoever manufactured the ring and marked it with .925 it would also state CZ?

I was unaware of the false metal positive. Thanks for the education and get out there for another or a few.
