So I think I may have been a fool.
I successfully won an online auction for an eternity ring that I plan to give my wife on our /(th Wedding anniversary later this year.
The ring has been described as 18ct white gold
It was valued at £2150
The auction guide price was that it would sell between £700 - £1200
I got the item for £500 - now here’s the rub - the certificate that comes with it is from EDR (European Diamond Report) and looking on here I couldn’t really find anything about them apart from they don’t seem to be recognised that well apart from one post where someone is praising them - but it looked suspicious.
Sadly my bus was set to auto bid so I couldn’t retract it.
Just wondering what you would recommend I do?
Should I get a valuation from a local Jeweller or take it on the chin and assume it’s worth what it’s been said it’s worth (and insure it accordingly)?
Pleas be kind as I do feel a bit of an idiot now but just wanted to give my wife a lovely gift.
