I have a .29ctw diamond ring I have had since the late 80's it is beautiful , but not sure if real. The ring is marked .29 magic glo xx 14k. Does magic glo mean it is fake?

It sounds more like a brand of jewellery than anything to do with the diamond. Most jewellers worth their name should be able to check the stone and tell you if it's genuine in a few seconds (and usually for free).

Hi kathysue,

I did a bit of poking around on the internet and it would seem that magic glo is the name of the manufacturer. I would second Davide's advice and say that you should definitely take it to your local jeweler to get it checked out. They will be able to tell you whether or not the stones are diamonds.

The ring you have was either bought at Belden Jewelers or Kays and is a real ring. The Magic Glo is not the company.
Hope this helps:)

Bucko - welcome to DiamondReview!

At this point I am curious, so what is this "Magic Glo" stamp?

I actually own a vintage "magic glo" ring. I will take some pics on Monday Davide.

The brand was considered middle ground, everyday wear, that was authentic but not exceptional.

Here is some trademark info

Thanks, An0nym0us - so it is the manufacturer's mark, after all, although it may have been retailed by any number of chains or stores.
