What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

It is a beautiful vintage diamond ring. Such vintage jewellery are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The ring has a lovely design which is very typical of the early 1900s. The ring appears to be in good condition which is important when selling items like this.

I believe that the ring due to its nice design and good condition would attract the attention of both collectors and dealers if it came up for auction.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online jewellery auction, where I believe the ring has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the ring. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
Thank you

Sabrina,
Thank you for sensitivity but I have gotten all the use I want out of the ring and with pride. I am downsizing my life and would very much like to put it up for auction. How do I do that?

Sabrina vinther Jan 19, 16:04 UTC

Your item will be presented for several auction houses, they usually tend to be interested primarily in items worth more than $1000. I would recommend waiting to see if an auction house reaches out to you and otherwise you could try selling it on ebay

Kind regards

Has the ring been put in an auction?

Sabrina vinther Feb 02, 18:25 UTC

No you will be contacted by an auction house if they want to commission the ring. If not I would suggest ebay or perhaps trading it in a jewellery shop.

Kind regards

What is the commission for selling?

Sabrina vinther Feb 23, 06:30 UTC

That depends on the auction house - they have various commissions that again depend of the value of the item.

Kind regards
