vintage metal ring with genuine diamonds tested not gold not platinum.

White metal ring when tested was not gold or platinum but has 68 (1 missing) genuine 1.5 mm diamonds. There is a 925 inside the ring and a heart with the numbers 1 and 0 inside it. It appears to me to be art deco. I had never heard of genuine diamonds being set in silver until recently but the settings we’re not vintage, they were modern. Could it be palladium?.

request for help

I am looking for a setting for an emerald cut diamond, baguettes facing N-S tapered in size(if possible, ~3×1.5 type of proportion on baguettes. Ring about 4.5-4.6mm width, ie, not a skinny band. Leo Engwer has one (non-tapered),and Ziva has one but my center stone will only be .8 or so, and this is for 1+carat. Any suggestions? I have been looking at stones at James Allen but tend to like the longer(1.5-1.6+:1)ratios.

Raising the Setting

I have a beautiful diamond (about 1.5 carats) and gorgeous setting but i am afraid my main stone is getting lost in the setting. Is it possible to raise the setting just a bit so that the diamond pops? I'd love to send a photo so you can see it better. Thank you in advance!

Antique Customized ring

How do I find out how much my Aunt's diamond ring is worth? It's 85 years old and it says customized on the inside. It's made of Platnium and the stone I believe is 1 CT and it has small stones on the side. It's a very old looking setting.

Best way to sell a wedding band

Due to a lost engagement ring I am looking to replace the set (still have the wedding band). How can I sell the wedding ring on my own as the designer will not work directly with me (as a consumer) and the store where I bought it is unwilling to give store credit or trade-in? I've done my "homework" and discovered the cost to replace this piece today has doubled since I bought it. I still have the original receipt, box, etc.
Thank you!

casted engagment rings

I found a mounting for my diamond that I really like but it is casted (vs die-struck). I have read that die-struck engagement rings are more durable. However, am I making a mistake getting a casted engagment ring? The diamond to be mounted is 1.5 carats. I want to make sure the diamond is secure in a casted ring. I wear surgical gloves off and on during the day if that gives you any extra needed information in terms of what I do for a living. I am also deciding between platinum and palladium as far as the metal used for the ring. Any advice would be appreciated.

Princess Cut Cathedral set diamond engagement ring

I have a square princess cut diamond ring on a cathedral setting. On the front (towards my fingers) and back (toward my wrist) of my ring are two diamond shaped cut outs with .08ct of diamonds. I am trying to find a wedding band to go with this but it is hard because of the setting and the diamond cut outs. I don't want a plain band and would like some diamonds on it. I've been told to try a chevron shaped band. Do you have any thoughts? I have a picture I can send if that would help

CZ set in real diamond setting

I have found a diamond semi mount. It is 1.15 carats and the color of the stones are H and Clarity SI. How will a FOR NOW CZ (1.5 carats) from Body Jewels look with the stones in the setting? I am concerned that the lesser color and clarity in the semi mount will make the center stone look fake. Your help is greatly appreciated and your comments have been extremely helpful!!
