Default Ring Stamped India?

I dug this out of my suspected junk rings, it seems cheesy to me. I acid tested it, and it did seem to pass 10K, 14K, 18K but 22K dissolved it. It was a little harder to scratch the stone though so I am not counting on gold.

Might it be a gold ring from India? That's the only label on it. Thanks. Martin

Doesn't look right for Gold.
Have you cleaned it yet??
Every piece of Jewelry or rings that where stamped INDIA that I found, they where junk.
maybe there using funny metal there passing the test.
Probably dangerous

Hardly cleaned. I am pretty sure that I am too new at acid tests and getting erroneous results. It just seems too hard for 18K gold to me. It was still a question I had to ask since the India label was inside. It is likely a carnival ring and that's all. Thanks. martin

Probably gold plated. Nice find in any case
