Ivory will have "striations" and or "grain" so of on close examination it has "stripes" it will be ivory but if its all a solid white it's bone....but with such a small piece you may not be able to tell, but because of the yellowing {another bone trait} I'm leaning towards bone

It looks pretty "home made", whatever it is

we here in the states call that "hand crafted" it makes it so people who really aren't that talented can feel good about themselves. Like for example the guys at San Quentin make "hand crafted" wine from rasins, or sometimes hand crafted cutlery, none this stuff ends up on etsy or anything, but there's still value in it all :rolleyes:

Via what method was this determined to be a real diamond? Thermal conductivity, refractive index,  a “scratch test”,  grandma's opinion, or what??

It was Grandma and I think she was joking!

In the states, shank is not the lower part of a limb, but a shiv, or a home made knife like weapon, especially those made in prison. Both shank and shiv are also used as transitive verbs.  I think @jezzupe was referring to this colloquialism.

Thank you for the explanation. Sounds more dangerous and less tasty :lol:

I very well could be wrong, but to me the tailpiece looks totally unremarkable, like something you would see on a flea market fiddle.

 

Might just have been a cheap tailpiece with a Parisian eye at one time, then someone made it into a project.
