What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

It is a beautiful gold ring with emerald. Such vintage jewellery are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The ring has a very classic and elegant design that has been modern for decades and will stay modern for future decades to come. It is a lovely thought that the stone was replaces with a larger one on your 10th anniversary. It is the ring type that is very sought after especially as engagement ring, and I believe that it would be popular 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 emerald 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, once again, thank you for sensitivity but we are downsizing and would like the ring it to be up for auction. How do I do that?

Your item will be presented for several auction houses, but they tend only to be interested in items worth more than $1000. I would recommend eBay for these kinds of items because of the extended amount of buyers on the platform. 
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
Thank you

Thank you but I would rather go the auction route right at the moment.
