What exactly is wrong with the pictures? Are they too dark or too blurry? Are you using the Macro mode (option would have a picture of little flower by it)?

    Are you using a tripod? Even a bag of dry rice or a beanbag would help hold the camera. You don't want to try to hold it by hand.
    You don't want to use the flash, so keep that off.
    You will need to get the camera closer to the jewelry for the macro mode to help. Maybe try shooting pics of something larger and easier to focus on, just to work on getting rid some of the problems. Then work with the macro.
    The other thing you want to try is using the camera's built-in timer rather than pushing the shutter by hand. That will also eliminate some of the blur/shake you're getting.
    The other thing you may need to change is the ISO - it's probably at 100, setting it to a higher number may help.
    Hope that helps. There are a lot of little steps to getting these kind of picture to work, and learning what your camera can do.

Is a ring marked 14k A/ a genuine gold ring?

It\'s illegal for a jeweler to mark a ring as 14K unless it\'s actually gold, and it\'s not uncommon to set a CZ in real gold. The only way to truly know is to get it tested, but I would bet that it is really gold.

Can a ring made of 18k gold over silver be re-sized?

In the past, rings that were plated silver or plated gold couldn't be resized. However, in 2010 JCPenney started resizing rings that are plated gold or plated silver. Since it's been four years that JCPenney started this service, I'm sure other stores and jewelers offer the service too. I do believe they can resize rings by two sizes.

Is silver heavier than gold?

No. Gold is more dense than silver. When comparing the same sized sample of gold and silver, gold will be more massive, which also gives it greater weight.

Something to make soft solder blend in more to gold color jewelry

Was looking for a patina - used in stained glass - this is what others suggest...

"I use gold leaf paint at my solder points in a stained glass piece to make it look like brass. Have repaired many pieces and used the gold leaf paint and works very well. I think the paint works better than the gold pen."

Gold'ish color at least - hope this helps... Dan

Crystals framing my Haurex watch face are falling out.

Hi, im a jeweller myself. The problem with jewellers and crystals is simple. Its a lot of work to replace something that doesnt cost a lot to buy (the crystals, not the watch). Swarovski are a commonly known producer of crystals, but you will probably find that simulation gemstones such as Cubic Zirconia are commonly used in newer watches.

I specialise in gemstone setting, and can also work with simulation stones and crystals, but it takes much longer to reset stones into a stainless steel watch case than into gold or platinum so the labour costs are much higher.

It depends how much the watch is worth as to how much you spend on repairs.

Hope this helps

Do u have to pay to go online on the xbox 360

Hello there.

On the Xbox 360, you'll have two choices of service level: Xbox Live Silver and Xbox Live Gold. Xbox Live Silver will offer limited Xbox Live functionality at no cost, while the Gold package will be a fully functional pay service.

The Xbox Live Silver service means you can connect your Xbox 360 console to a broadband Internet connection and get functionality right out of the box without having to pay any amount of money.

With Xbox Live Silver you can:
  • Create an online Gamer Profile
  • Access the Xbox Live Marketplace
  • Engage in voice and text messaging
  • Talk to a single friend at a time using voice chat
  • Receive video messages from Gold level members
  • Access massively multiplayer online games (additional fees may apply)
The Xbox Live Gold is similar to the current paid Xbox Live service. The Xbox Live Gold service delivers the complete online connection package. With Xbox Live Gold you have all the features of Silver level, and additionally:

  • Play multiplayer games online
  • Video chat
  • Multiplayer online tournaments
  • Participate in Xbox Live online programming, such as Game with Fame, Play and Win, and Prime Time activities.
Hope this clarifies things for you.
