Reputable budget online jewelry?

I'm interested in finding online sources of precious-metal jewelry at a low cost. For example, a site that had solid gold/gold plated/solid silver chains to put other jewelry on. I know ebay has a good selection, but I have found that things have been mislabeled (ie something marked solid gold that is obviously not). I also know there are some things like that on Etsy, but there has to be a source of their supplies. I'm more interested in the low cost side than the artful jewelry side (I already have lots of sites like that to drool at!).

Best way to sell a gold coin collection?

My elderly father has spent all of his savings in recent months – around $200,000 – buying expensive coins. Most are gold, some are silver and platinum. Some are bullion; most are old and "rare." His collection was fun and interesting for a while, but now it has become a source of stress to him. He has no money left in the bank, and has decided he doesn’t want to keep the coins. It looks like Dad was skillfully played by slick sales reps, but I haven’t seen evidence yet that he has been defrauded. He has asked me to sell the coins for him. What’s the best way to sell a bunch of expensive coins? [more inside]

Home for Christmas and my mom has a jewelry question. She tried cleaning the chain of her gold necklace using silver polish, and when she did, it turned silver. Why? And can it be reversed?

US Treasury Bond, Silver, Gold or What?

I just became an uncle (Yay!) and I want to get my nephew a gift to help him start saving. My first inclination was to get him a US Treasury Bond, but I was wondering: Is buying an equivalent amount in gold or silver a better long term (30 plus years) investment?

it's silver and gold

My wedding band is plain and made of yellow gold. My watch is stainless steel. I wear both on my left side. I haven't worn my watch since the wedding because I'm (perhaps unduly) bothered by the clash between the gold ring + silver watch. [more inside]
