I have a really uniques engagement ring that my fiance and I picked out on ebay. The thing is, now we're trying to find wedding bands and the shape of the engagement ring requires a contoured wedding band that would fit perfectly. We really like pre owned jewelry in order to avoid contributing to the problems surrounding workers rights in countries where many of the raw materials come from. If I send a picture of the ring and a picture of a band, could you tell me if it would work to be adjusted to fit? Thanks! Danielle Clark

My boyfriend has given me an engagement ring that was his mother's from Turkey. I took it to a local jeweler to be sized down to fit my finger and they could not identify the metal that the diamonds were set in so they would not try to size the ring. How do I get the metal identified?

Hello Jeweler, Me and my wife bought weddingrings in october 2011. Today ( 11 july 2012 ), my wife asked me what happened to hers. When i looked, i saw that her ring coloured brown on the inside, but not completely. Basicly only in the exact center, where the inscriptions are. the outer edge of the inside of the ring is not coloured , and stil yellow.My ring, doesn't show any colouring. The rings are both 375 gold, and bought by a well known jeweler , here in Hamburg, Germany. I hope you can provide me with an answer. We know for sure the rings aren't gold filled, they are real. Thank you very much, Pascal Geutjes.

Hi. I have what looks like a vintage 14k gold link bracelet with 5 multi gemstones. It's stamped 14k BB. What does the BB stand for? I've searched the Internet for a bracelet like it but can't find anything. The gold links have what looks like a laser cut design to them. Are the gemstones likely to be real? Do you know if it sounds vintage and approximately what the value would be? Thank you for your help!

I have a 14k white gold engagement ring that is 6 months old. It has "turned" so much that in certain light it almost looks like yellow gold. It was not an inexpensive ring and I am not happy that I will need to dip it every 6 months for the rest of my life. Many friends and my sister have white gold rings and have dipped them every 10 YEARS or so. Is this normal? It certainly will not match my wedding band when we get married next month as that has been in a box for six months. What to do?
