Ask The Jeweler a Question

I have a number of Western Electric employee award tie tacks received for years of service. Some of them have 'diamond' chips and some don't. One says on the back 1/5 10K, the others says 1/5 10KGF. My question is, What does the 1/5 mean? Does it have anything to do with the diamond chip? The 1/5 is on the ones that have 'diamond' chips in them as well as the one's that don't.. so I am assuming the 1/5 doesn't have anything to do with the 'diamond' in it. Second question: Is there usually something on the ring that indicates whether or not these 'diamond' chips on the tie tacks are genuine diamonds? Thank you for your help. Bonnie White

Can you tell me if this is a vintage ring and if so, by who? I thought the center mounting a bit odd and makes it look old but have no idea. It looks like there is a center bolt that is holding it all together. Also, I do not know if they are Ruby or Garnet gems. Thank you
