I have a little ring that we used to call a "princess" ring. Probably from the late 60's early 70's. It probably cost about 90 dollars at that time. It is 14k white gold with tiny diamonds..I can best describe the shape as a like a sort of flat football. I would like to sell it..but have no idea what it is worth. I have read that they are now considered vintage jewelry. Do you have any idea what it would be worth?

Hi! My boyfriend's mom just gave me a gold ring with multiple detached bands and a decorative piece, which holds the bands together. The ring appeared to be missing two bands so I took the ring to a jeweler to have it fixed and resized. The jeweler told me the best thing to do was to mold the separate bands together and I agreed.
