Jewelry & Gemstones

Good morning all...I was directed here by a friendly member from the collectibles forum.  I have a couple of questions and I'm hoping someone will be able to help me out a bit. 

I picked up a few pieces at a sale that I would like to sell, however, before posting them I was hoping someone could tell me an approximate age?  they look vintage, however, they are very tarnished so I'm having a difficult time determining if they are old or just dirty  - I posted photo's below.

 
Also, is sterling always marked?
 
2 rings are marked sterling, the blue stone ring and the clear glass ring that resembles a diamond.  I'm assuming it's a rhinestone as I can't imagine a diamond would be paired up with a sterling mount.
 
The turquoise ring is marked 925LOL?
 
The other rings do not have any marks. Could they still be silver?  if not, what do you think they are made of?
 
The bracelet is marked 14k.  I was hoping someone could tell me if it's a newer piece or vintage.
 
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated as I'm not very knowledgeable in the jewelry department.  Thanks in advance and have a fantastic weekend. :smileywink:

Greetings and I hope I chose the Right Group to aid me with this lovely Jade bracelet. I have spent hours researching, and am only becoming MORE confused!
So counting on one of you to give me the Correct Info before I list this bracelet. I was told it is Lavender Purple Jade by the lady I bought it from. I haven't seen any with this Rectangle Cut stone. Is that rare? The stones are such a VIVID color, except for the paler one. I was told this is Natural. What ERA is it from?
I'm even thinking it might be Victorian or Deco? It is stamped Sterling. Any help Appreciated!! Thank you in advance! Can't wait for comments! :smileyhappy:

I love genuine gold jewelry, and was distressed to read recently that fake gold items were being imported to the USA from China, stamped 14, 18, and 22 k gold.

Today, I noticed many listings on eBay for these punch type tools to stamp inferior gold colored metal with a gold 18k stamp..

I consider this criminal activity...and these stamping tools should be banned.?

 

Here is just one of many, many listings.
