Object D'Art

We acknowledge that there will be some signs of wear on antique and estate jewellery. Jewellery in flawless condition is a rare commodity and therefore demands a higher value, just as where jewellery with apparent alterations and restoration can detract from the value. Repairs can also result in devaluation as well.
