Default My First Emerald-Diamond Ring!!!!!!

Hello Everyone!!!!



I did a happy dance today when I found this!!!! And more of a Dance when I got it cleaned up! It has 14 Diamonds around the Emerald. I took several pictures for a variety of Angles.

I found this in a Park that was Built in the 1970's and been there 5 times until I found this Beauty! I am not sure of the Karat yet of the Gold.... It needs more cleaning of the Inner Band to see the inscription.

Thank you for looking and Happy Hunting All!!!!!!!

Us water hunters say a ring is a ring so congrats on finding it... I'll say this though... I don't think its real... the emerald is too clear and the gold unless its a low carat won't go green like that... I'm thinking its gold plated... nice find though

I was wondering of the Gold Quality since it has that green on there. I do hope this is real of a find? The main reason I posted in the mind blowing finds section of this forum of thinking of it being real. If need be can move it to The other Showing section of this Forum?

Ok Ok Lol.

Just read it must be a Synthetic-Lab Grown Emerald. It has no flaws in the Emerald.

Great find!
Some people say I am stubborn but I say its patience and persistance and it pays off...

Anyone of us would have to put our eyes back in after diggin
that up so it qualifies as eye popping.

Looks antique too.

Congrats!

Utah, nice ring and a very old setting. Possible it could range from the 20's to even the late 1800, European. I would like to get a good look at the diamonds to see how they're set to be sure.
