Value of a ring

I have a 3.25ct center diamond that is I1 and it was remounted in an 18 kt gold Martin Gruber Nova mounting that has 1.5 cts of vs diamonds. Have an estimate of this ring? It was appraised in 2005 at 45000.00. Now I know that the appraisal value is not the market value of a ring like this but not sure. My friend has a jewelry store locally and has offered me 15000.00 for the ring.

Replacing a single baguette diamond

Hi Fred! Earlier today I noticed one of baguette diamonds was missing! I’m devastated and although I’m trying hard to find the original I just have no clear idea of when it fell out! I would love some information on how much you think it would cost to replace it, unfortunately it’s almost 13-15 years old and was handed down to me by my mother, so any paperwork and information for it has been lost over the years. I’m more than happy to send you any photos if that’s what you need to get a good idea. Just let me know!

Thank you
-Alexia D.

Stanley Cup Rings

Would you please post photos of all the Stanley Cup rings (tops and shanks) that you have made? There has been speculation and false information about the 1997 Red Wings & 2001 Avalanche rings circulating the internet from about 2005 on. Also It is hard to find a good photo of the ’99 Stars ring.

P.S. I would love to see any and all championship rings you made from 1995 and on.

Inside the ring theres like a square where it says 750.

IS MY PENDANT REAL GOLD

I BOUGHT A 14KT GOLD PENDANT THAT HAD THE “DZ” MARK BEHIND THE 14KT MARK. I UNDERSTAND THAT IT MAY ONLY BE 58% REAL GOLD BUT HOW REAL IS REAL? I SEE THAT IN ALOT OF POSTS AND NOBODY REALLY EXPLAINS IF THAT IS GOOD OR BAD IF IT IS ONLY 58% GOLD.
