"Stop pitying yourself, people have it worse, you should be grateful." You've probably heard this before, and it's some of the most cliché, unhelpful advice around.

Dear Lifehacker, I was wondering if you can help me appraise some gold stud earrings I wish to sell? They're jadelite cream with a vintage apple design. Each piece has 11 diamonds on the back totaling 22. I can see hallmarks but can't quite make them out. I don't know their value or maker. I would appreciate any help!
