Here is a fabulous fake! It is very convincing as a wedding ring and that’s why I bought it, so it would look like my fake husband loved me enough to get me a decent wedding ring, lol. It is a solitary paste stone in the middle set with four prongs on a simple decorative sterling silver metal band which could pass as white gold, at least I think that was the idea behind it. The design of the band is indicative of the 1920s - 1940s era. What I loved about the ring is that only the very pointed tip of the paste stone is foiled, but not the cheap kind that can rub off, it is actually encased in a silver metal so when looking down on the stone it seems genuine. The stone is set up higher with two bands around just like the genuine diamond rings of the era it so it’s hard to see that the stone is imitation. I can tell when looking at the side of it, but you’d have to look close. It is a nice big paste stone but not too big, it measures about ½” across, so looks to be about a 1 ½ to 2 carat diamond paste. The band is inside stamped STERLING and is in very good vintage condition with little wear to the band and no chips to the stone. I’ve only tried it on once and wore it once for a few hours and that’s all. But it is antique so it may have been worn more by a previous owner, although I can’t tell how much, it’s in very good condition. I believe it is a USA size 9 and could probably be resized if you thought it worth doing.
