Default My best ring so far.

Found this in a residential curbstrip a couple months back while digging nickel signals. It must have been an ugly breakup to throw this beauty. It's marked 14k, Helzberg Diamond Exchange, Fascinating Diamonds. Haven't taken it in for appraisal yet.

Yep that's a nice one for sure! Looks like possibly a blue topaz, or maybe blue sapphire. Let us know how the appraisal goes, congrats!

Only a gemologist can tell for certain, so get it checked.

Its very light blue and transparent. That shades me away from sapphire. My guess is what cellrdwelr said. A blue topaz with 6 1/8th karat or less diamonds in 14k.
