Quite a strange one, this. Was found in a pair of jeans that were bought from a local charity shop. The item was taken back but nobody has been back to claim the ring a few days later and so we were told we could keep it.

Working in the gold industry, I set about testing the item to find its' value.. The ring has a FULL UK hallmark (750 stamp, assay office and makers initials), making it 18ct white gold, and 15 diamonds that I estimate to be 0.25 (or 1/4) a carat of diamond in total. These diamonds have been tested by a professional thermal heat diamond tester & are extremely clean, clear and unmarked. In the centre of the ring is what I guess is an emerald. I have no proof of this, but it's a much darker green than, say, peridot. Emerald is the birthstone for May.

I value this ring at over £200 and a second opinion has backed this up. In the current climate, with the price of gold increasing, it's a beatiful, if not strange, ring, with good investment properties.

The size of the ring is unknown, but if it helps, it's almost exactly the same size as a 5p piece (a 5p is ever so slightly larger than the ring).

Offers over £120..

Thanks.

you don't say, is the money being donated back to the charity shop?

I think that we did the right thing in the first place by asking if anyone had attempted to claim the item back. They hadn't, and the shop has no way of tracing the origin of the jeans.

The money will be kept for myself and my girlfriend. I doubt we'll be donating any to the charity shop.

Tried two a few days ago, but they only want to offer between £45 & £70 as they scrap the gold and resell the diamonds. They don't look at the ring as a whole, they simply go off weight and carat.

5.6 grams. No other marks other than full UK hallmark.
