A WORD ON INDEPENDENT APPRAISALS AND THEIR IMPORTANCE:

It is a challenge when purchasing antique jewelry online that you are assured that which you are purchasing, is indeed, the piece presented to you.

An independent jewelry appraisal can give you that confidence.

An independent jewelry appraisal verifies the features of a piece of jewelry. It also values the jewelry’s monetary worth. It is a legal document that can be held up in a court of law, signed by a certified appraiser.

Why an independent appraisal? While many jewelry stores and online retailers use an in-house appraiser to appraise their jewelry, I choose not to. I want to be confident that the person appraising my jewelry has no vested interest in its price.

By using an independent appraiser, I am allowing an outside, objective party to determine the price of my jewelry.

I use North American Gem Lab to do my appraisals.

On occasion, I am asked for a G.I.A. certificate. A G.I.A. certificate analyzes the stones, but not the entire piece of jewelry. Of course with some antique pieces the stone is the most significant part, but with many antique pieces, the jewelry’s craftsmanship or provenance holds equal or greater value. An appraisal values the entire piece of jewelry, not only the center stones.


An additional reason to offer an appraisal rather than a GIA certification, is that the G.I.A. has to remove stones from their setting in order to certify them. With an antique piece, my intent is to "do no harm." The piece should be as authentic as when it was made (as possible), which includes not removing and remounting the center stone.


Thank you for visiting!

About

A Passion For Antique and Vintage Jewelry

Hello and Welcome.

Camellia Collection offers authentic antique and vintage jewelry.

In 2008, After many years of collecting, studying and appreciating fine antique jewelry with a passion, we turned that passion into a business.

While increasingly difficult to find, we dedicate our selection exclusively to authentic pieces and do not show reproduction jewelry.

When choosing to buy an antique piece of jewelry, you are selecting a piece that is unique, beautiful and of exceptional craftsmanship. We believe that these qualities are what continues to make antique jewelry exciting, original and investment worthy.

It is always a joy when clients love their pieces as much as we do. After all, our client's happiness and satisfaction is the heart of our business.

Welcome to the Camellia Collection!

You will find Antique Jewelry in Exquisite condition. Engagement rings and most rings in my collection that are priced above $2,500 come with an independent, written appraisal from the respected North American Gemological Laboratory.

My entire Antique and vintage inventory is selected for its condition and artistic aesthetic. I feel it is important for customers to know that I do not show reproduction jewelry, vintage art objects or clothing.

I Welcome any convos/questions you may have about the inventory in my shop. I feel this is important with any of my pieces and I encourage it. If you would like additional photos of an Item or copy of an appraisal I will be happy to provide that for you.

And as Always, your Happiness with your purchase is my Happiness!
