yesterday i went to a high end jewelry store one hour from my house and got my antique cluster ring ultrasonic cleaned and sized. today i went to a local small store to see if they had any 18k old bands in my size. they did not and the owner took my ring and without my permission acid tested the top silver prongs. i told him they were silver and he said no their platinum or white gold they would not use silver with 18k yellow gold and my rings not old its in good shape. now my ring is badly tarnished on some of the silver prongs. i called the high end store. they said the stones have to be removed and it has to be polished. they said it could damage or weaken the silver prongs because its an old ring. what should i do? how much is this going to cost? will my ring be ok? i dont know why the guy would touch my ring like that. i was just looking for a gold band.!!!
