Jewelry is gently cleaned. We do not buff or polish away years of patina that we
feel enhances the piece.
All of our items are presented as we receive them from the original owners. We
do not remove stones from settings, and unless otherwise noted, all statements
regarding gem identification, weight, quality, or clarity of the diamonds and
gemstones are our best estimates.
Our Vintage/Antique pieces are usually obtained from
A very Reputable Antique/Estate Dealer.
When the items are not marked for metal content (karat), metals are tested. When
the items are marked, we try to include a photograph of that mark. It is our
hope that any estate jewelry and items you purchase from us will provide you
with pride and pleasure for years to come.
