I lost my diamond engagement ring years ago and would like to find a replacement with the same style or have one made in the same style. I still have the wedding band. The design is an engraved star pattern. There is an inscription on the inside that says Everwed. I have looked on the internet and cannot find anything about Everwed. They were purchased from a reputable jeweler in 1970. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I have kind of an odd question for you. While my son was here one night, he was playing with a little black light I have. I collect beads, jewelry and gemstones. I thought it might be fun to look at my beads, jewelry and gemstones under it. Some of my sapphires and rubies turned a bright pink under the light. While my yellow sapphire ring turned a purplish color. My question is, while looking at my Kanchaburi sapphire ring, some of the diamonds looked purplish like they are supposed to, but one of the diamonds in it looked like an opal under the black light. It had a bright bluish green look to it and it really didn't look like the rest of the diamonds. Then in a pair of diamond studs I have, same thing. One diamond had the purplish tint or hue to it while the other had that bright bluish green look to it. Does this indicate that some of the diamonds had some sort if treatment while others do not? I am confused why they didn't look the same as the others. Then I took my approximately 1/3 carat loose diamond I have and it looked purplish also with no weird color to it. I know all of my diamonds are real or suppose to be. Any answer you could give me would be extremely helpful. I thank you in advance for your help. Have a great day. And thank you again Colleen

Hi, Thanks in advance for your help. Do all jewelers size sterling silver? I'd like to purchase a ring online which is platinum plated S.S. from a size 7 down to 5.5, is that possible and will it be very costly? Also I've had pretty bad experience with rose-gold jewelry in the past, they seem to tarnish over time. Could it be just the plating or will that also happen to solid rose gold too? Best regards,

Nancy From Los Angeles asks....
hello Nancy, The plated rings are not made to re-size since the plating will burn off and make the....
