Our experts are available for a free appraisal of your valuables by appointment.
The appraisal can take place:
- at our head office in Milan in via Montenapoleone 9
- at our associates’ premises in Rome and Turin
- depending on the case, also at your home
To make an appointment, please contact us Monday to Friday or sign the online appraisal form uploading photos of the jewellery, any certifications, valuations and purchase invoices you already have and we will call you back.
The appraisal of an item of jewellery takes into account many aspects, such as the Maison of production, the characteristics of the stones, the age, the manufacture and the value.
For a more accurate assessment, especially with regard to precious stones, laboratory analyses will be appropriate or necessary.
We have relationships with the world’s leading certification institutes such as: GIA in the United States, SSEF and Gubelin in Switzerland, HRD and IGI in Antwerp, as well as Italian ones such as IGI and Cisgem. Everything necessary for the certification (transport, insurance, relations with the institutes) will be handled by us, and you will only have to pay the relative cost, which will be recharged to you at no extra cost.
Following the appraisal, a reserve will be agreed with you, i.e. the minimum price to be paid to you in the event of an award, net of commission, which will be indicated in the Mandate to Sell.
During the time your jewellery is in our custody it will be covered by our insurance, without any additional costs on your part for photographs or catalogue publication.
The above is only an extract from the GENERAL TERMS OF SALE to be referred to in legal terms, which we ask you to read carefully before participating in the auction.
