I took 18k gold earrings with 40 brilliant diamonds and had a jeweler make an eternity wedding band. I chose the yellow gold. Now I see he put the diamonds in 14K gold which I am having an allergic reaction to and there are not 40 diamonds in my ring? What should I do about this? Thank you.

No; you didn't say what the "NV" and the "9" mean. I recieved a handful of old rings; from a friend,that used belong to his mother, because I wear alot of rings. I have one piece I'm dying to find more information on. It has a square pink stone woth three small white stones on either side, and five medium yellow stones across the back. But the unique thing about this ring is the two hinged half bands on both sides. There is an "NV" and three "9" stamped on the inside. Can you tell me anything about the old ring. And would I need to send you a picture of the ring?

We recently purchased a new ring for our 10 year anniversary. The engagement ring was 18k white gold and the 2 bands were 14k white gold. Within weeks the 18k gold ring was already yellowish. I have the option of returning but I can't decide. does 18k turn back to yellow more quickly than 14k? I don't want to go buy another 14k and have the same issue. I do wear my rings at all times so they're exposed to a lot. My other choice was to have it reset in palladium. Is palladium a good / safe choice for wedding jewelry and it is more valuable than gold?

Hello Debbie, Before I give an answer to your question you need to know how white gold is made, nat....
