    found a buried ring

    Hi- any suggestions/thoughts? My dad found this ring buried in garden (south london UK). close up pics make me think it's hand made. suspect low carat gold becasue it was rather green looking before cleaning. the back flat part looks very roughly done. No hallmark except a possible semicircle...

    Throw a snowball, get a fine

    A penny for your thoughts on this ... My thoughts: This is silly. 99.99999999362% of snowballs are thrown in good fun and result in injuries no worse than those delivered by a full belly laugh. Driving in a car is MUCH more more likely to result in injury or death. Shall we outlaw cars too...

    Emerald ring a dumb idea?

    Hello fellow Pricescoper’s! I have a loose diamond and would love to make a moi et toi ring with a similar sized emerald to wear as a right hand ring most days. Is this a crazy thought or should I just go for it as long as I choose a stone without surface reaching fissures? I’m not happy to do a...

    Odd fluorescence in a garnet?

    These are my very dirty earrings (kept in a box). Apologies for the dust. I like this style. My design. Four red garnets and two green tourmalines. After a year of ownership, I noticed strange fluorescence in a pyrope or almandine, whatever it is. Three are bought from one vendor, one from...

    Finally Found a Good Cut

    I've been looking for a month or so for a stone that is G, VS1, and has a good HCA score. This is the only one I've found but I don't see a video. Do I trust the HCA score of 1.4? Is $6662 a good price?

    Help with a possible upgrade

    Hi, I currently have a 1.82 ct round diamond. E color. Vs1. 7.87x7.89 mm. I haven’t been completely satisfied with the size though.

    Are you a real person??

    This freaked me out today. The phone rings, and a guy asks to speak to David. "That's me", I answer. "I'm calling from Google maps to find out your hours on Christmas day." So I ask the guy "where are you calling from?" ...I wanted to know which google office he was in. "I'm calling from Google...

    Advise on buying a new setting

    I am looking to reset my pear into a split shank halo. Is it less expensive to buy a setting online and have the local jeweler do the reset? Is buying a setting online safe? Or is it just all around safer and easier to go into an actual jewelry store where I can see, touch, and get a better...

    What to look for in a dealer

    Hi all, thinking of proposing soon and going out with my girlfriend this weekend to get an idea of what she likes. For the final product, though, I’m thinking of going with a private dealer that my family has known for decades. Several of my cousins have gotten their engagement rings with him...

    I'm such a chicken

    I've been looking for years and I haven't seen it in person but I'm seriously considering this Stuller in 1x white gold. I have 2 questions...1) my diamond is 7.2 mm but the setting comes in 7.0 and 7.4. I hate air lines. Which mm should I go and why? 2) what type of wedding band (not...

    Facing up a color grade lighter

    I've read a few times that once a diamond is set, it may face up around one grade lighter. Is this because of the metal around the diamond itself reflecting through the diamond, or the human eye comparing it to the ring? Reason for asking is that I've just received a potential replacement for a...

    Suprise found in a $1 jewelry box

    I forgot about it until recently, since it's too big for me to wear. My mom bought a $1 jewelry box because it rattled at goodwill, then found this trapped inside. She gave it to me because I love sapphires. And I forgot about it. Anyone know what the KE or KH stamp means? The pearl is warm...

    Can anyone recommend a custom cutter for a unique shape?

    I have my heart set on an elongated hexagon diamond, and finding the right stone has been a challenge. Thinking I will need to start looking into custom. Bigger sites like Whiteflash can't accommodate shapes like this. Any recommendations? Thank you!
