Have you had any pieces done and was the job done well? Do I need to take it to some sort of specialist?
Sounds like it could be a bit older...Date: 12/8/2006 6:19:51 PM
Gold with little diamonds. It is topped with a white metal, but I don''t know it could be platinum or white gold. Ihe face of the ring is in good condition it''s whats going on underneath that has issues.

I''ll be 50 in 11 days and I''m not an antique by any means
Jewelry is generally regarded as antique if 100 years old.
Not every bench jeweler is a restoration expert. Ask before you have the work done.
Nice looking vintage style!
InnerKitten...that''s a beautiful ring! I hope you can have it restored painlessly. I inherited my great grandmother''s e-ring and needed to have it restored. I took it to a local jeweler and he did a nice job, not perfect but it was in pretty bad shape to start so I''m happy with it.Date: 12/8/2006 6:21:43 PM
Do the diamonds have X cut in the metal around them?
How old is the ring reported to be?
x`s cut in the metal could be referring to a type of setting common years ago called "cut-down" which gives the appearance of x`s.Date: 12/10/2006 12:11:44 AM
Strm~why do you ask if there are x''s cut in the metal?
