My fiance is half-Norwegian, and all the family he's in contact with are pretty Norwegian. We're having a wedding and trying to honor each other's heritages. I need touches and customs that can be added to said wedding. Problem: while googling on the internet for Viking stuff and/or meaningful runes, I'm finding a ton of racist stuff. My fiance has done antifa work and I just plain hate Nazis. How can I find cool customs that have not been appropriated by horrible people, and how can I buy jewelry (particularly ring-type) that isn't going to racist pockets? [more inside]

Do you know of any other firms that will recycle your gold and make jewelry for you? I know of EcoKarat, but they don't offer the stones I want for my custom jewelry.
Barring that, what's the best way to sell the unwanted gold jewelry I have? All of those cash4gold websites look unsavory.

You are not my jeweler. We were waiting a bit to get our 10 year anniversary presents and both rings I liked sold out. Please help me find something as good or better. [more inside]

Are certificates of origin for sapphires a scam? Is my jeweler going to overcharge me for a sapphire, and should I get one online instead of through him? [more inside]
