*All of the items listed for sale are priced "as is". One of the most wonderful things (in my opinion) about antique jewelry is the story each piece tells through areas of wear and patina. As many of these items are hundreds of years old, some of the pieces will not be in perfect condition so any buyer should be aware of this when purchasing. I do my very best to photograph every piece from all angles to show its uniqueness as well as condition and wear. *Any and all measurements provided, including estimation of carat weight of diamonds and stones or carat gold, are approximate and based on estimation. Unless otherwise stated, we do not remove diamonds/stones from their settings in order to obtain an exact carat weight.* I am not a jeweler or gemologist, just someone that loves antique jewelry.*
