Jewelry Consulting

I know what I like, but I have no idea of how to get it. Who can I trust, or is there some way to better protect myself? Can these two items be taken apart and put together to form a new, modern piece which I could wear? Is this a real diamond? Is there a “problem” with this piece of jewelry?
