Appraisals provide a description of each item offered and submit a retail replacement value to the item for insurance purposes. We do not recommend you base your decision to buy an item based on the appraisal value. Please be informed that the appraisals have been prepared by independent appraisers, and the retail value may be very high or very low and there may be variation in the grading of the jewels. However, due to the subjective nature of the grading and the appraising process, the auctioneer does not assume any liability for the appraisal certificates.
