Default Online find that blew my mind...

I was browsing on a shopping website just for something to do one night. I come across this ring and I'm thinking dang that's nice. But as I look at the pictures I notice the Thailand makers mark. This is identical to one I have on a London blue ring. She describes it as gold over silver and simulated blue topaz. She never took a picture of the other side. I study this ring for 3 weeks, she finally marks it down and I figure what the heck its only $67.00. I get it home and holy moly its marked 10kt. I'm pretty sure the stone is real, who would go to the bother and expense to put a fake stone in a 8 prong gold setting? The stone is about 23 carats...my husband says I can sniff gold out...lol

Quite a stone, way to “see” the gold! I know you’re good at it, from your prior posts

Simulated?? That is topaz, but is likely heat treated...like most on the market...nothing wrong with it...you got a great buy...think the seller screwed themselves!

Finder laughing, and seller crying!
