Validating Jewellery


Recommended Posts

My OH bought an 18ct White Gold ring in Jordan, many years ago.

It does have a "hallmark" showing [GD 750], indicating that it is indeed 18ct (75%)

I'm planning to sell it on the forum, but would like some assurance for myself and any prospective buyer, that it is genuine.

What would you recommend? Have you ever had jewellery tested, before?

My advice would be to take it to a professional jeweller for authentication. No amount of home remedies would help reassure people I fear!

When me and the other half was in India a few years back I had a ring made for her it was a 9ct white gold ring with 1ct aquamarine stone and each side of that 0.2ct diamond.

The guy said that when we get it home and have it valued it should be at least double what I paid. I wasn't holding out any hope lol, but I finally got round to doing it two or three years after coming back and was valued at around £750 (I paid £220) so was surprised and only cost £30 to value so worth doing that.
