Hi, the dot on the paper method works with cut stones, but it sounds like you may be talking about an uncut stone? You would probably be better off taking it to a jeweler to be evaluated. I hope you did find one! How exciting!

Thanks for your reply! It is a round cut stone. So what you are saying is if it is a cut stone and you can see a circle through it then its a fake whereas a real cut diamond you wont?

Thanks again

From what I understand, you are correct. This works on unmounted, cut stones. You put a dot on a piece of paper, set the stone on it, and if you see a circle, then it is probably a fake. The other thing is to look with a magnifying glass for scratches on the surfaces. Thanks!
