Subject:Gold and jade ring.
Posted By: Brandon McCloskey Fri, Jun 05, 2020 IP: 173.188.17.154

Tests as under 18k gold. Green apple jadeite by the looks of it but does the design scream any era to anyone?

I appreciate and information!

High quality Jade, and low carat Gold.
I hear alarm bells

What are these alarm bells telling you?
It is real jade and gold.

Hi Brandon,
Your design suggest later 20th century.
As too whether the jadeite is genuine or treated/other requires a gemologist hand on test. It is impossible to determine either way by a couple of pictures.

Thank you Mark, could you explain what features tell you that and why?
I received this ring from an older woman who claims it was bought from a shop in China in the late 40's

Which method was used to test the jade?

I preformed a hardness test and observed it under a microscope.

I still have a bad feeling about that Jade. There is a possibility that it is Quartz, which is harder than Jade. Mark got the right idea:take it to a gemologist

I will do that thank you, I was unaware they could get quartz to look like this.
