Got a nice 14K gold with 10 little diamonds and a nice big one mounted in White gold, I hope it turns out not to be a CZ.

  Gotta love this Lake hunting stuff

I think you might be lucky on this one. Some people will tell you that a diamond will scratch glass, while CZ will not. This is becoming less true. The new CZ  can scratch glass just like regular diamonds. CZ ranges between 8.5 to 9.0 on the Mohs hardness scale, whereas diamond, one of the hardest materials known to man, is rated 10, lying at the top of the hardness scale?

There are testers availabe, but the best bet would be to see an expert. (A trusted expert) He can look in a powerful magnifier for you.

Just a guess on my part, but with it being 14K gold, you stand a better change of it being diamonds than say a 10k ring.

I wish you the best of luck on this one Texan.

I am keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Please keep the forum up to date.

Cheers,

Mike

Your ring is an awesome find. The prongs on the stone are heavy so I bet your stone is real.
