I found an older ring that was my moms or my grandmothers. It is VERY clear and BLUE sapphire ring. I was just wondering if they had synthetic sapphires about 20 to 25 yrs ago?? IF so how can I tell if this is real or not? It is in a gold ring
Interesting question - I have been wondering the same thing. I have a ring that was my grandmothers - with a very blue sapphire in the center, surrounded by tiny seed pearls - almost like Princess Di's ring. The sapphire looks like it might have some scratches on it - and to be honest I don't know how to tell if it is costume jewelry or the real thing.
