IMPORTANT Notices & Disclaimers - Please Read
Regarding Appraised Jewelry and Loose Stones - AuctionBarn sends them out to a third party for Retail Replacement Value Appraisals, which are the most common. These types of evaluations are written for insurance needs. This would be the cost to replace the jewelry with an item of equal quality and kind, considered to be the current market price or the replacement value. This type of appraisal is done to protect you in the event of damage or loss of a valuable item. Our appraisals are conducted by independent 3rd Party appraisal firms that utilizes Certified GIA Gemologist. Appraisals should be used for verification of gemstone and/or metal weight, size, and grade only, not actual dollar value.
Appraisal value should be considered for insurance purposes only, not actual dollar value, as price varies greatly from retail locations throughout the world. Items should not be purchased with the expectation to resell for appraisal price, or for profit.
