  1. Dear Sir, I will begin by saying that I particularly appreciate your response as professional and very diplomatic. I am very pleased with my inspiration to choose you for a competent opinion. Yes, the auction was online and public, and I was momentarily exalted by the beauty of the stones (I like the natural hearts), I thought that it would be preferable to pay a penalty amount for the renunciation (which also has the consequence of not being able to participate at their online auction house ) instead of paying about $1100 VAT included, the value by which I won the auction for this jewel. Money that I doubt I can recover by reselling it. In Milan I have already contacted a house for jewellery sale, which cleverly told me that I will pay for the jewellery and not for the real value of the stones and gold and that they do not sell fancy brown diamonds that they consider depreciated. In fact, I would be very grateful to you if you give me your personal opinion on the question wether : a person that loves quality should or not buy this piece for $1100 ? I thank you specifically for the time you have given me, ending here with the hope that I will still have a valutation from you ! Best regards, Karina Colombo Milan
  2. Hello, I recently won on the online bids one ring with 5 fancy mix diamonds, cca. 1,5 ct total. I thinking not to pay the value, only the cost of the bid ( I would find it honest). This ring was estimated by the biding website at 3000 Euro, but my online research determined that these fancy diamonds have significantly lesser value. Could someone please help me value this ring at its just value? ..and advise me as to how I should proceed ! Could some knowledgeable expert assist me in this endeavour ? P.S. This ring have AIG certificate with the following specifications: Center Stone: Natural diamondShape: Round brilliantCarat weight: 1.54 ctColor: Fancy Mix ColorsClarity : VSGold: 14 kt Yellow goldWeight: 3.00 g Thank you, Best regards, Karina
