Each piece has been professionally examined and verbally appraised as well as being tested for metal content. Stone carat weights stated represent approximate weights which can vary. Due to the age, antique and vintage jewelry is often not perfect, and may have normal signs of surface wear, or small imperfections due to its hand crafted rather than mass-manufactured nature. This is what makes each piece special and unique!
