How do I know if my diamond ring is real, besides the obvious take it to the pawn shop or a jeweler??

We went shopping at Zales, and I picked out the one I wanted, it was $14,000. I turned away for a few minutes still browsing and a few weeks later, he gave me a ring… sweet, huh… but the metal in some places looks tarnished, which i think he may have done to fake people out cause $14,000 is a freakin lot of money for a ring, even I know that….. so the ring has one BIG stone in the middle two smaller on each side of the big one, and yet two smaller still ,,so two small two medium and one big one… he told me tho that a diamond doesn’t sparkle in rainbow colors… but my bro said it looks real and he bought his wife a diamond ring. i have gotten lots of mixed opinions about it, and people actually say it seems real, im dying to know the truth!

Hold it to your mouth and breathe on it like you’re trying to steam it up. If it doesn’t steam, it’s real. If it holds the steam…it’s not.

The best way though, is to take it to a real jeweler. Just walk in and ask them to look at it and tell you. You won’t be charged because you’re not trying to have it appraised…you just want to know if it’s real or not.

Even if it isn’t real…just keep in mind that he got the ring for you because he was trying to make you happy. Not everyone can afford a ring that expensive…but it sounds his heart was in the right place whether the stone is real or not.

A diamond is a girlÂ’s best friend! It is a beauty and unique nature makes it easy to admire. Diamond purchasing is a great task and an exciting pleasure. There are various types of diamonds so when buying real diamonds, one should learn about fake diamonds so that you will be able to distinguish between the fake vs. real diamond. Nowadays the best fake diamond is in great demand. Here are some of the simple solutions or the methods that will enable you to find out the difference between the fake vs. real diamond. The best way to know about the precious diamond is to acquire knowledge from a diamond professional. If possible take the diamond along with you to the shop and get all the details from the jeweler. The best fake diamond looks so similar to the real diamond that even a professional diamond jeweler may get confused and may have hard time to finding out whether it is a fake or the real diamond. In case you are not satisfied with the views regarding the real diamond from the professional, here is a way to find out which is a real diamond and which is a fake diamond.

The first method is to check the diamond with the help of diamond tester as it will help you to differentiate between real diamond and best fake diamond. It is an electronic tester that can check all the diamonds except the moissanite stone for which the diamond tester is not reliable. The best fake diamond is the cubic zirconia and the weight of this diamond is around 50% more than a real diamond of the same size and shape. This weighing test also can find out the difference between fake vs. real diamond.

Another method for checking the best fake diamond is the transparency test in which the diamond is placed up side down on the news paper and if the written matter from the newspaper is legible then be sure that the diamond is not the real one and it can be a best fake diamond. One of the disadvantages of this method is that some of the stones may appear to be a real diamond due its fine cutting. In this case, one needs to be sure about the cutting methods of the stones. This method is very common and enables you to find the real diamond from the best fake diamond.

The third method that helps you to differentiate between fake vs. real diamond is the fog test. Hold the stone or the diamond and blow some air from your mouth on to the stone, if the fog appears on the stone and stays there for next few seconds then it shows that the stone is a best fake diamond because in case of a real diamond, the heat disappears instantly. The oily layers and dirt on the stone might create some problems to differentiate fake vs. real diamond. Thus, before carrying out a test for best fake diamond, clean its surface properly.

The ultra violet test is another method that will enable you to find out the real diamond from the best fake diamond. The real diamond projects blue color light if put under the ultra violet light or the black color. There are two options, if the blue light does not appear, it can be best fake diamond or can be a high quality diamond.

All of the above tests can satisfy all the test conditions to differentiate between a best fake diamond and the real diamond.

Old Mine Diamond E.G.L Certified, Looking for a buyer ASAP?

Hello,
I have a 2.84 (loose) Old Mine diamond that I would like to sell. The diamond has been graded by E.G.L as 2.84 carats, S-T in color, and Vs2 clarity. I am looking for a buyer for the diamond. I recently lost my job and I am in need of selling it for a fair price. The diamond has been appraised for over $12,000, However, I will sell the diamond for as little as $5,000. I have several pics of the diamond as well as a pic of the certification. If anyone can point me in a good direction in where I can find a buyer, that would be most helpful. I have tried many online places such as jewelry websites that have classifieds as well as ebay. Most people interested are either scammers wanting me to use an (escrow service), or possible jewelers who want me to send the diamond to them so they can look at it. I don’t want to send my diamond anywhere unless it is to a buyer.
Thanks for taking the time to read this

There isn’t a jeweler that will spend $5,000 on a diamond without first seeing it or having the ability to get their money back from escrow if they didn’t buy it. So what you should try doing is contacting the non-corporate jewelry stores and ask them if they buy certified old mine cut diamonds. It will save you a ton of gas and money this way. On the off chance you can’t find a jeweler who will buy it, I would try using the local Craig’s List. Or you can spend a little money and post it in the local paper from Fri-Sun for a couple of weekends in a row. Most people will not buy a high priced item without some research or time to think about it. Others may see your desperation and decide that they can wait out until you drop your price more. Not to mention, that considering the size and clarity shown, the cut must be very poor to only be at an appraised value of $12,000. That’s just something else to consider. Good luck.

very small, something like the size of a percing stud on kids.
I got them for my grad, and chirstmas night, we (we being the ppl i was renting a room from) got robbed, and they and an old laptop were taken…they never claimed my earrings, because they were “fake” probably from walmart, when I know they weren’t.

I can’t ask the person I bought them from (she passed away last month) and I want to know how much to ask them for to replace them.
