DH bought a ring off ebay. The cert of apprisal is from "Dynasty Jewelry" by a Rakesh Gajera GIA Graduate Gemologist and Appraiser...supposedly this ring is worth 8k but I'm having trouble believing it, (DH bid 400 and won). We are planning to have it appraised by a professional we trust, but I've been doing some research...the inside is stamped with "14k", okay, 14karat white gold, that's real, whoo hoo. What's a "U" shape mean?! It's not stamped with CZ so...I'm hoping it's real, anyone know anything about gemology?!

you might have just paid for for the band..most rings I've seen with fake diamonds but real bands go for around that price..how big is the diamond?

I highlllyyyyy doubt its reall. They would be loosing LOTS of money if its "worth 8k" but let it go for $400??

But hey, hopefully it is and you just got a great deal!

Can you scratch it? Does it have any imperfections in the stone?? Is it yellow? A perfectly clear, flawless diamond is ALOT of money (obvously depending on the size)

Real diamonds will scratch glass. Find some glass you wouldn't mind having a scratch in and test it out.

I bet its real. Or you may have payed for the band. My mom bought one that said 14kCZ but the CZ ended up being real!
