Bent out of shape over a ring... Treebeard would be proud.

Is there any noticeable, physical difference in any of these wooden rings? Moreover, are any of them a better choice for a wedding ring that will be worn daily? (Links and more wooden ring info than you ever wanted inside) [more inside]

Dirt in my wedding ring-help!

Jewelry filter: I have a wedding ring here and it is peridot and diamond stones. I recently went hiking and a lot of dirt got stuck behind the stones. I have tried washing it and scrubbing it with a soft toothbrush, but some of it is not coming out. There are tiny holes in the backside of the gems that the dirt got into. Any ideas for cleaning? Would a jeweler be able to clean it?

Can anyone identify this gold ring with an odd design?

This ring turned up at my deceased grandmother's house and no one recognized it. General consensus was that it looked like a man's ring from the 1970s. The band/base appears to be gold and the design appears to be rose gold. Can anyone recognize the design or shed any light on this? Pics: 1 2 3

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?

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]

My ring tarnished, and now it's fading away (onto me)!

My wife gave me a ring 2-3 years ago (while we were still dating). It's made from a New York State quarter, and silver(?) plated. About 6 months ago it started to tarnish, and now the copper from the inside of the quarter has been revealed. It's beginning to turn my skin green! Can I just take this to any jewelry shop and they can fix it up? Can it simply be replated? [Alternate solution inside] [more inside]
