*All gold and diamonds are guaranteed to be authentic, however the auction company makes no warranty as to sizes, color, clarity of stones. All gemstones listed as genuine are verified from outside sources including but not limited to GIA Graduate (GG) Gemologists , however the auction company makes no warranty as to the origin of the stones. Any gemstone that is not listed as genuine or natural in the description should be assumed to be synthetic or lab created.
All genuine colored gemstones including sapphires, emeralds, ruby, tanzanite, amethyst, alexandrite, citrine, aquamarine and others are to be considered to have treatments common in the market place such as heat, diffusion, lead glass and flux additives unless otherwise noted. Treatments of gemstones are so common in the marketplace that it is estimated 99% of all gems have some sort of treatment. If a colored gemstone is not listed as genuine or natural, it is presumed to be lab created or synthetic.
Appraisals provided are from third party GIA Certified Gemologists. The values given are for Insurance purposes only. Appraisal retail replacement prices and auction estimates are to be used as guidance, and are not guaranteed by the auction company or the third party appraisal company. In no way is there any guarantee of purchase or possible resell value expressed or implied by the auction company, consignor or the appraisal company. Opinions of value and judgement of the 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 does not constitute any error on either evaluator. Much like real estate, a gemstone is worth different amounts to different people, in different parts of the world. Brand name watches such as Cartier, Rolex, Tiffany, Omega and others are guaranteed to be genuine, and have genuine movement. Bands, bezels and other additives to the watch, not affecting the movement of the watch can be original or after market. All items are available for preview at any time before the auction begins, feel free to contact us to arrange a preview. Any stones without a genuine designation in the description are not warrantied and can be natural or synthetic. Auction and appraisal images can be approximate and appraisals may be duplicated by the appraisor when an item that is a newly manufactured item is so similar in nature that the appraisal company deems it to be unnecessary to provide an entirely different document.
*All coins are guaranteed to be original. Grading (professionally slabbed as well as hand written) can vary depending on the expert or agency. Any coin grading is subjective and supplied to the best of our knowledge, and should be used only as an approximate guideline.
