It cold use to be restrung but is in otherwise excellent condition. Estate simply means previously owned.It does not mean antique or vintage. Everything I sell is previously owned, or estate. Minor wear is to be expected, any damage will be in the photos and description. A quick note on my item descriptions. I try and keep my listings "fluff free". Unless I've grown very attached to a piece, or if I drink wine when I'm listing, my item descriptions are pretty much just the facts. It's my job to provide good pictures and thorough descriptions. I don't offer appraisals with my auctions.
It's in the buyers best interest to have an independent valuation of an item. I also don't like auctions that offer over inflated appraisals on their jewelry.
That said, I do stand behind my diamond grades and my gemstone identification. We don't offer sizing, which helps us keep our cost down and allows us to offer auctions at no reserve.
