Auction Terms & Conditions American Jewelry & Coin Auction LLC Terms & Conditions - All Rights Reserved
Final sales prices are determined through Public Auction, with competitive Online Bidding. Because we do not set the final sales prices - ALL SALES ARE FINAL except for the guarantees explicitly outlined below.
All Gold, Sterling Silver Diamonds & Genuine Gemstones are electronically tested prior to being sold.
METALS: Gold & Sterling Silver are guaranteed 100% genuine.
DIAMONDS: Diamonds are tested on electronic Presidium Gem Testers and are guaranteed to be genuine. Opinions of size, color, clarity, cut and cutting style can vary greatly among experts and are not warrantied.
COLORED STONES: Gemstones listed as "Genuine" are tested by Presidium Gem Testers and are guaranteed to have the chemical properties of a genuine gemstone. All colored gemstones are considered to have had treatments common in the marketplace such as heat, diffusion, lead glass and flux additives. 99.99% of all colored gemstones on the marketplace have had treatment. Colored gemstones without "Genuine" designation are untested and are considered to be synthetic, man-made or unknown in regards to the original origin of the stone. These stones cannot be warrantied and should be purchased for their aesthetic value.
WATCHES: All time pieces sold by AJCA LLC are pre-owned and guaranteed authentic. Watches are verified by professional watch makers by serial number and cross referencing the movement of the watch. We guarantee the movement of the watch, as that is all we can honestly warranty. We DO NOT warranty bands, bezels, crowns, dials, crystals or any other parts making up a watch that could be after market. Simply put, pre-owned watches, much like a car can have a wide variety of aftermarket parts. If a pre-owned Lexus gets new tires, is it still a Lexus? The same is true for watches.
COINS & CURRENCY: AJCA LLC guarantees the authenticity of coins and currency. AJCA LLC makes no warranty as to the condition of coins or currency. Coin grading varies greatly based on the experience of grading standards of the individual or grading company, it should be used as a guideline. AJCA LLC does not warranty any basis of grades.
APPRAISALS & OPINIONS OF VALUE: All values including appraisal prices and auction estimates are to be used as guidance and are not guaranteed by the auction company or the appraisal company. No appraisal or auction estimate should be used as a suggestion of resell value. Opinions of value and quality of stones can vary greatly among "experts" based on current market conditions, availability in the market place, geographical location, gemological equipment types, method of grading and the evaluator's training. Such variances do not constitute any error on either evaluator. AJCA LLC does not warranty any opinion of value.
As is customary in the jewelry business, when items are manufactured and are so similar in makeup that there is no difference in weight or appearance, a certificate may be duplicated for each piece that is manufactured and evaluated by the appraiser. There are several items in this auction that are brand new, manufactured items, and this process would be similar to the processes used by major chain jewelry stores that have several of a single item.
Photography: All items are phoographed used a 10x high powered macr lens. Items are placed in a professional lighting studio box to enhance the lighting and represent natural lighting from the outdoors.
It is important to note that items will appear in photos as if you are viewing them under a 10x loupe, and can look different (generally better) to the naked eye. Items are NOT edited or altered at all. Manufactured goods may be examined and appraised by the appraisal company in groups, with reports being issued reflecting their findings and views that are the same . Photographs used for the purpose of appraisals or auction listing may be used multiple times when an item is manufactured to have no noticable difference.
