I’d like to make one final point: most of the world is filled with wonderful people and everything should go just fine. Trust your instincts. Keep diligent and alert. Don’t take risks just to make a little more on the sale of your estate jewelry.
There is an old saying that old is gold and the fact is true by every means. People or women specially love those gemstones which are unique and rarely found on earth. These rarely or vintage gemstones are generally kept by the great grandmothers in their precious gemstone box only to pass it on to their successor. These rings are unique and thus it gives a good feeling to any women who are wearing it. Women love these rings because it shows the amount of love their ancestors have towards them. Thus wearing such a precious gemstone on the day of their wedding and that too as an engagement ring gives a great feeling.
Antique Jewelry new of the Victorian era (1835-1900) were generally set in yellow or rose gold. Most of them were diamonds or pearls and could be found in a variety of designs from the very simple to some very complex.
On-line auctions offer a lot of advantages and some risks. On-line auctions like e-bay are auctions conducted over the internet reaching a world wide audience. The cost of selling an item is modest if the object sells. Sales are not guaranteed. Which on line auction to use is a critical choice. The large auctions have many offerings and sales but it is easy to get lost in all that activity. Selecting the best category is another challenge. If you choose a smaller on line auction company, many potential buyers will not find your offering. The decision is best made with research on how your particular type of jewelry was sold. E-mail and ask other sellers if they got the price they wanted and how the selling experience was for them.
You have a wide range of settings to choose from. Go through their advantages and disadvantages and compare them for your or her choice. Some engagement ring settings are costlier than others. So, know also about the costs you are going to incur.
Gold is one of the most traditional metals. It signifies warmth and love. The gold bands and rings are available in 24k, 18k and 14k. 24k is the purest and the softest form. However, if you work with hand choose 18k or a 14k to prevent scratches.
Another purpose to be ensured is the maximum reflection of light from the stone surface. While examining the setting, see that more top surface of diamond is open. It should not be covered by metal at all. Open surface allows for more reflection of light from the surface facets. This reflection gives brilliance and fire to the diamond.
