frame. The Deco checkerboard side pieces are glass enamel on

attachments. An appraisal dated April 1987 indicates a retail
appraisal at that time of $1675. (Good gosh, $1675

has adjusted since then, and Sparklz estimates current
replacement value at $2400 +.

Jewelry indicating an "appraisal range" or "retail range" or "approximate retail value" are the opinions of the owner of this website. If you obtain a written Replacement Appraisal from a reputable appraiser, it should be within the "Retail Range".
Retail and/or Replacement appraisals vary as much as -25% to +25% from one appraiser to another. . Factors affecting this include geographical location, high/low rent districts, & price range. I have chosen a medium price range for ease of comparison. The selling prices are, in almost every case, well below the appraisal range. If the selling price approaches the appraisal price, there may be unusual factors guiding the pricing. Please inquire if you wish further information on the pricing structure or a guarantee of an appraisal amount. If you obtain an independent written Retail Replacement Appraisal from a reputable appraiser it should be within the "Retail Range".
*Jewelry marked "Master Gemologist" indicates that appraisal was done by a person who been trained to the highest standards, as determined by the American Society of Appraisers. A Master Gemologist's training is superior to a Gemologist, Graduate Gemologist, or Certified Gemologist, and she is prepared to back up her appraisal with facts based on her research, and tests done with gemological equipment. A written copy of appraisals already done by the Master Gemologist I use is available for a small additional fee and does not delay shipping of the jewelry.
A Master Gemologist appraisal can be obtained on ANY piece of jewelry. The delay in shipping the jewelry could be 5-10 days.
