    1)
    "Gold jewelry bought and sold" is passive.
    It's short for "Gold jewelry is bought and sold [here].
    You'd most likely see this as a sign in a store window.
    Jewelry, by the way, is the North American spelling.

    2)
    Sentence 2 is good English.
    But you would never put it into the passive.
    Putting both verbs into the passive, you'd get a monster like "The way your cool is kept in the heavy traffic is admired."

    wishing you success
