What are these particular swans doing on this particular lake?

I just bought this pin on Etsy (side and back view). It was listed by a Latvian seller who says it's a vintage Soviet-era item. This pin must have been a mass-produced item, since I saw one exactly like it on Etsy last spring, though someone else beat me to the purchase that time. I'm intrigued by the image of swans seemingly menacing a woman and her child, and I wonder if it perhaps references a Slavic folktale. A friend has suggested that it might be a Swan Lake reference, though to my mind it doesn't suit the narrative. Your thoughts and best guesses?

Jewelryfilter - Please help me find...

I'm trying to locate a special necklace my wife once had. It was purchased in downtown Colorado Springs and I believe it was crafted at that store. I don't have the name of the store, but I think they went out of business. Here's a quick drawn mock up. Do you know where I can find a pendant like this?

I like it I love it I want it, can I hope ever to have it?

I *love* this aquamarine and diamond 14K ring, which is priced at $1850(USD). Not that I'm actually planning on buying it, but just for curiosity's sake, and possibly for practical use much further down the financial road, is this a competitive price, or could I hope to have one just like it made, or to find something similar, for less?

I'm a dude. I have an opal. Now what?

So I'm a manly man, sort of, and many years ago I was given a small opal (1cm top to bottom) - I don't think it has any real monetary value, but it's pretty, and I'm tired of it living in my drawer. Any ideas for what I can do with it? My first thought was tie pin, but that seems pedestrian. Suggestions that include sources for necessary supplies or services would be especially helpful.

Bling for cash?

I'm in possession of an old engagement ring that was purchased in ~2002 and was, at the time, about $750 at one of those mall jewelry stores. It's less than a carat, but I'm not sure how much less. No paperwork. I'd forgotten I still had it until I found it in a box. Ex did not want it returned. What's the best way to get rid of it and get the most cash possible? [more inside]

3 pearls

An older family member has given me 3 pearls that have great meaning to her and asked me to have them made into jewelry to be given to another family member (a 22-year-old woman). What form of jewelry should I have made? Any tips on how to deal with local jewelers to get something that will yield a beautiful and valued gift?

Amore d'Armor

Recently started weaving chainmail in a search for a quiet crafty activity to do at my desk during downtime at work. Sunk ~$100 into getting a good mix of starting materials (anodized aluminum, brass, and a steel "coif kit" for when I get the hang of it.) Have so far learned basic 4-in-1 weave and made a bracelet and some earrings for my wife. (The latter turned out, the former is so-so.) What are some good resources for patterns, advice, other info?

Retail store workers dealing with fashion jewelry, untie!

I work for a manufacturer looking to sell fashion jewelry (necklaces, bracelets, earrings that sell for appx $5-$20 at retail like the kind you'd find at stores like Claires, H&M, Forever 21, etc) to retail stores. For purposes of this question, we're looking to sell to general retailers like the ones above, NOT to jewelry stores. We're trying to figure out packaging as it relates to polybags. Most stores, such as the ones above, display their fashion jewelry without polybags i.e. people can touch and feel the jewelry. [more inside]

Where could I go to sell a watch in NYC?

I need to make some quick cash and intend to sell a watch that sold for about £400 in the UK five years ago. Does anyone know of a reputable place in NYC that I could go to? There are so many choices out there my head is spinning :) I have never sold a piece of jewelry before so any specific suggestions would be welcome. Or would posting on eBay be a better choice? Thanks in advance.
