I usually increase the contrast in my photos, so any flaws will be more pronounced.

Near Mint / Perfect: Like new - no noted flaws

Excellent: Minor flaws which do not compromise the piece

Very Good: Minor flaws, easily repairable and wearable flaws. Most items fit in this category

Fair: Noticeable noted flaws, some significant, possibly wearable or repairable

As Found: A piece that is damaged beyond repair, recycle parts,valuable for research or for further study.

Please make sure to read policies and frequently asked questions prior to making your purchase.
Care of Sterling jewelry: Patina is what gives older silver pawn jewelry its character. That’s why in our shop, we rarel remove patina – we let the new owner decide if they want the item to show its age or to be shiny. Authentic patina increases the value of old Silver, Gold, Brass and Copper pieces. It is not verdigris.

We often get asked about resizing cuffs. We suggest that you check with a local Silver Smith to resize or reshape your cuffs and rings.
GEMSTONES: Gemstones may or may not be LAB Gemstone or a NATURAL Gemstone. Some Gemstones have been altered in a lab. Gemstones have been tested with the Presidium Gem Tester. We are not gemologists, nor do we have the refractor equipment to test for identifying stones. We do test all gemstones on the Gem Tester to verify that a stone is a gemstone. So we can guarantee a stone is a gemstone, but cannot guarantee which it is. We can easily verify some stones, but not all.

If you have questions regarding the gemstones, please convo / email us. We are happy to take a picture of us testing the gemstone, and the results on the PGT.
