Hello,
Welcome to the forum.
You will need to upload much clearer photos than those.
Look forwards to seeing your rings....
Best,
Kelly.

 Hello,

I'm new to the forum and have been collecting old rings for decades.

I have never had any of my collection professionally assessed (I just buy what looks real to me) but would appreciate some feedback from the experts on here.

First up, please see attached.

expensive, fake and almost always set with unpolished semi-precious stones. Faulty inscriptions and sloppy gilding (or as the seller says "real gold).

it is amazing how firmly this fraudster is sitting in the saddle. No action has permanently harmed him. A few new seller accounts are created on ebay and the lies and scams continue.

This account brazenly relies on inflated prices, exploiting the naivety of buyers.

Already luxeon55 has success with this strategy. Fakes, goltplated, at prices many times higher than real artifacts.

It must have fixed in the minds of the buyers, that expensive means real. I shake my head in disbelief

all rings (even the seal) in the same style. Rings with gold, strangely enough, almost all with natural unpolished gemstones (even in the Middle Ages, the jewelers could already polish stones) and the inscriptions made by the same hand. Prices higher than comparable real antique rings.
I hope you did not buy these overpriced fakes.The money is better invested in these hard times in helping those in need (whether with 2 or 4 legs).

OMG!!!!!!!  What a tangled web we do weave!! Guess that's just the frosting on a cake full of malfeasance and deceit. The poor shoeless uneducated youngins ' out Urals way will just have to look elsewhere for funding.

Happy holidays to all,

Gaius
