My boyfriend and I have engraved sterling bands that we wear, and have worn forever. When talking about marriage and looking at engagement rings and such, I just wish there was something we could do with these. I don't want some cookie cutter ring, but I know it is silly to put diamonds in sterling... right? So, I am not jewelry savvy so I just wanted to ask if you knew of something fun and interesting we could do, both of us, to incorporate our original love symbol with our eternal ones? Thanks! :-)

Hi, my boyfriend just proposed to me and he gave me a beautiful ring! The problem is, the band is sterling silver and I'm afraid of it rusting over time. I was wondering could it be possible to get just the band remade in white gold or another medal and then just replace the stone back inside? If that's possible where would I go and around how much would it cost?

Krystal From Myrtle beach asks....
Hello Ross, Yes you can change the ring from silver to white gold, as for cost you need to fined o....

I have been given two sterling silver 925 vintage heishi bead native American necklaces. I was able to research that much but can't find any other information on them. The small one is 18 inches and has 20 strands. The other is 24 inches and has 100 strands. The larger one is stamped with SJC and both have a sunburst type stamp on the cone. Do they have any value besides the silver? I was able to locate new ones in the native American website. Thanks!

My fiance proposed with this beautiful vintage inspired ring. (Pictures attached) It was purchased at an independent jewelry store that has a jeweler on site every day. It is stamped 14K inside the band and the paperwork that came with it describes it as 14K white gold. It was originally a very small size and the store sized it up about 4 sizes to fit me. After wearing it about a month, I noticed that the piece added on the band for sizing was no longer shiny. In fact, I can run my fingernail along the band and feel a ridge where the dull and shiny meet up. I will be taking the ring back to the store soon but want to know what caused this. Is it poor quality or workmanship? Is it that the piece added isn't really 14K white gold? I'm also concerned about the matching wedding band. Please help!

Karen From Roseville asks....
Hello Karen, The discoloration of the ring can be because the added metal is not 14 karat gold. Hav....
