Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques and art collector as well as dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you. Please know I do not send pop-ups.

Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment.

Can you send me at least one photo?

To send photos you may use the "add files" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.

An explanation of this method can be found here:

Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 1 month ago.

There looks to be a bracelet as well?

Are these set in sterling silver?

Are they set in gold?

Kind regards,

Doris

The case that it came in
Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 1 month ago.

Are there any stamped marks or numbers?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
If they were, it is extremely difficult to see?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Can you make this out?
Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 1 month ago.

I cannot see them in the photo.

Can you tell me what they look like? Yes, I would expect them to be tiny but each piece would be marked if one is.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I can not read it sorry
Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 1 month ago.

Are there marks/numbers on any of the other pieces....they should look like 375, 626. 750 913, or 990 or the numbers 9, 15, 18, 22,***** or K.

Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 1 month ago.

You will need a magnifying glass. These are extremely important to value.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Okay, I will need to get back to you with this information tomorrow. Thank you
Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 1 month ago.

Studying the pieces with a magnifying glass will be worth the effort!

Kind regards,

Doris
