    Jewelry set

    Dear David and denverappraiser, Thank you both so much for your suggestions. @davidelevi to your points. 2. I can imagine bigger ticket items such as sets might be more difficult to sell. However, is there kind of marketplase online or offline where it people are selling such things? Ideally in Europe. 3. I absolutely agree. Thats the reason why I am looking for a second opinion. You guys over here are awesome :) 4. Unfortunately, I do not have detailed information about its origins. It was supposed to be tailor made in the ‘90s. The jeweler i gave it to for a assessment said the aquamarine is most likely from brasil but thats about it. Could you please advise me on how and where i can find an independent appraiser and gems dealers for that matter? Ideally in eastern or central europe. @denverappraiser the information i dropped were from a local jeweler whom i (partly) trust. He also mentioned it is very high quality work, its condition is very very good and the gems are well attached so it might be difficult to take them off. Thanks a lot in advance. Best regards, Hugo

    Jewelry set

    Hi, I received a jewelry set made of necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings. The set is made of Brazilian aquamarine, small diamonds (i would say about 0.5ct), gold, and pearls. Its value is approx 35,000 euros. I would like to monetize it somehow what would be the best way about it. There are two solutions that I have been evaluating: - Sell it as a whole. However, I do not know what is the best place to sell this. Also, I am not sure how to appraise the value of jewelry besides the gems itself. - Take it apart. I found a gems dealer and he would like to take it apart and sell it piece by piece. The deal would be that he would take it apart and then sell it to buyers. However, I am a bit worried that the gems might get damaged in the process. Also, the gems dealer asks 20% fee for taking it apart and then selling. Could anyone advise on the best solution? Thanks Best regards, Hugo
