Lesson Learned
In Response To: $2,400 Diamond Ring ()

This ring looked rough and questionable when I found it. Ring had worn plating and was not stamped. Took it to 6 different stores (4 in a mall & 2 independent jewelers) and received varied responses. Both an independent jeweler and a mall jeweler glanced at it and said it was not real just based on the plating loss and no stamp. They then tested the stones and changed their opinion to real diamonds in white gold. Took it to a 7th jeweler and got the REAL answers w/ an appraisal. Under the crappy silver colored Rhodium plating is a beautiful 14K YELLOW gold ring. Had her buff the plating off and the ring looks great!! She did the acid test and it held 14K firmly.
