Purchased in the US, I don't have a receipt but do have a valuation from 2002 from a UK Jeweller that we got for insurance purposes. Picture of valuation included.

The ring is in excellent condition, and have been cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner. Sale includes quality "Robert Anthony Edinburgh" Gift box.

Ring description from valuation: "an unusual design comprising a large central dark blue faceted marquis cut sapphire and eight round brilliant cut white diamonds. The centre stone is secured at the top and bottom into a wishbone shaped tension setting with four diamonds to each side below.The diamonds graduate slightly in size and are secured into white gold channel settings. Completing the ring is a plain polished yellow gold shank. Unhallmarked, stamped and tested as 14K gold. "

Approx Sapphire measurement : 10x5 mm Marquis
Approx diamond measurement : 4@ 3.5mm round, [email protected] round

One Thousand, eight hundred and fifty pounds only "

The Original valuation certificate will be supplied with the ring. Ring is approximately size N based on wife's finger and online ring sizing chart.

I'm sure if you took it to any pawn shop they would give you at least £1000 for something worth twice that.

Please answer the questions above thanks, as you were going to take this for a valuation recently?

nah - most I have been offered is £250. The insurance valuation apparently is the costs it would take a jewler to re-create the ring from scratch - i.e. the full retal value of the ring. Also its a bit too modern a design for the 2nd had jeweller I tried.

Jewellery mark-ups are huge as well - typical trade price for new jewellery is apparently 25-30% of the selling price (so I have been told.)

Hence they could buy a new ring like this for ~300-350 trade - which is why the low offer 2nd hand.

However wife has hardly worn it, so its of no use to us but hate to think of it melted for scap.

Check my feedback - I'm not on the make. and the address on the valuation is still my current home address. Happy to do a half down half on reciept for someone with enough feedback.

So the valuation is worthless, as it's supposed to be the value of the ring and it's not.

If it was used to claim on insurance, it would be a false claim for £1850?

I'm not a jeweller nor an insurance expert.

If the ring was lost - that is what it would cost me (in 2002) to get an equivalent replacement.

BUT (like anything) the rings value is only what anyone is willing to pay for it and all I have been offered is £250 for gold/stones value.

More than happy for someone to pay half, have it valued, and pay the remainder after they value has been confirmed for them or offer them a full refund. And if theres any questions about ownership - as I said I have a valuation from 2002 with my current name/address on it...

why not stop wasting our time and get it valued, THEN come back and sell it


I have got it valued in 2002 - and how am I wasting your time - if your not interested move on. Post reported for thread spoiling

However, you're using it as a selling point to show it as a value of £1850 which it isn't, its real value is the £250 or less. Posting the valuation information is worthless here, as that is for a new ring that you don't have in your possession, because it would need to be made as a replacement.

Sorry but the thread is closed and you'll need to wait at least seven days from now if you want to relist without that.
