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?

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 *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 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 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]
