vintage metal ring with genuine diamonds tested not gold not platinum.


White metal ring when tested was not gold or platinum but has 68 (1 missing) genuine 1.5 mm diamonds. There is a 925 inside the ring and a heart with the numbers 1 and 0 inside it. It appears to me to be art deco. I had never heard of genuine diamonds being set in silver until recently but the settings we’re not vintage, they were modern. Could it be palladium?.


Hi Brenda,

Palladium usually has a PAL stamp on it. 925 usually indicates silver. You’re correct in that diamonds aren’t generally set in silver as it does not hold gems well.
