Dear Calla – Inherited Grandma’s Bent Silver Ring

By Calla Gold

Old Bent RingDear Calla,

I’ve inherited a very bent silver ring. My dad said it was my grandma’s, who grew up in the depression. It was her wedding ring and it means a lot to me. Last year I took it to a local jeweler at the mall, but he said it was crap and not worth fixing and tried to sell me a white gold band.
