One of my favorite ring finds was a 1kt CZ on 925. MUCH prettier/sparklier than any diamond could be.
But no, I've not found even a synthetic diamond on 925.

I have a couple with mostly diamond chips or small stones. One belt buckle ring I have is stamped 925, but also has other hallmarks inside that I have never found the meaning, the other has numbers and letters besides the 925. Both checked positive for diamonds From what I've seen posted on other MD forums, it's not that unusual these days.

A couple years ago I found a beautiful 14K ring with a main stone of at least one carat and 18 smaller stones on the split shank. Diamond tester said it was a diamond. Took it to a jewelry store and the young lady tested it and proclaimed that it was a real diamond and very high quality.

Happened to be in a jewelry store in another state and showed it to the jeweler. He tested it for a diamond and it tested positive. He then tested it for Moissanite and it tested positive for moissanite. Had it checked by another jeweler and she also proclaimed that it was Moissanite.

Both of the Jewelers said "Well you do have some value in the gold".

So diamond testers are not always telling the truth.

925 is usually a silver designation isn't it?? Trusting results are another test for sure. Covet your find and just take it for what it means to you. John

I found a mens Tungsten carbide (Triton) with sterling insert and 9 diamonds.
They do sometimes mount diamonds in silver as you can not channel set diamonds in tungsten carbide rings.

You need a special tester for Moissanite stones.


Yes, I've found one....sometimes they put diamonds in .925 in Mexico.

Most ladies diamond rings found ( 99.9%) on the beach are FAKE. 40 PLUS YEARS HUNTING AND ONLY 2 REAL ONES FOUND.AND THE GOLD WAS WORTH MORE.
