I have been dealing in jewelry and watches with AuctionKing for 3 years. We are very pleased with our purchases. We understood from the beginning, the appraised value is the highest given for insurance purposes. I am a Financial Advisor, and I tell my clients never to insure for the Appraised Value. Insure for a used, replacement value. Here is what I found at all Auction Houses, be careful when you buy. Dealers buy at these offered at Auction Houses and then double the price to sell retail. Check the appraisal. I suggest for jewelry, to keep to the G-H colors and go no lower than SI2 clarity. You can go to I1-I2, if you are happy, good, but I2 will be hard to resell. I have found AuctionKing consistent with other Auction Houses in all their products and services. When you are going to an Auction, you have to study, and learn, to get a good deal. I often will bid, and then stand back, and watch the bidding go far too high. I just watch then. Noticed too, last weekend, everyone was chasing the bracelets and no one was interested in the rings. Sometimes, it is the other way around. So, last weekend, I got a fantastic deal on a ring, actually, two fantastic ring deals. Rings, not the highest in quality, but far, far less in cost than ever be found at a retail jewelry store. It is a great experience, sometimes you make a mistake, you loose some money, as my late father in-law said, that mistake is just tuition towards your education.Aeron EvansVancouver, B.C.
