Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. It costs no more to post picture(s) than not. You can use the little "tree" icon in the tool bar above.
I don't see a answerI'm sorry, but I'm new to this site and have only used it once a couple of years ago.
I don't see a answer, only a Disclaimer.. Am I doing something wrong or do I not have a answer yet?
Hello, Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. It doesn't cost any more to post picture(s) than not to. You can use the little "tree" icon on the tool bar to post right here, or use a file hosting site and send us the link when you have uploaded your pictures.
Should I just wait for an e-mail?
I have switched to question and answer format since you seem to be having trouble using Chat. Please read everything form the top of the page down to here. You can use the little "tree" icon above to post your picture(s).
It really shouldn't make a difference. The workaround is to use a file hosting program like photobucket, snapfish, etc. Upload your pictures to it, and then give us the link in your reply.
That is something you can't do, due because of JA's rules and regulations.
You can go to www.photobucket.com or www.snapfish.com and sign up. It's free. Then select your photos from wherever you have them stored and upload to the site. When you are done, follow directions for sharing the photos.
It does indeed resemble some of the pieces that were recovered from the Abbatucci. You will need to take it to a large auction house (Christie's for instance) or the largest jewelry store in your area with a resale department to have it looked at. There were lots of goldsmiths working in that time period so value is very difficult to obtain. Looking online at some of the pieces sold at the 1997 Abbatucci auction, I was stunned at how similar some of them are to today's David Yurman and Judith Ripka designs. Determining age will be the key to value.
Check out this link firstname.lastname@example.org and see if you can send it to them for appraisal. Recovery from the Abbatucci didn't start until the summer of 1996, so the odds of its being from that wreck and not good. Here is an ebay link to some pieces that are available for sale.
There is never another charge, and you aren't expected to accept again. I am always happy to send along anything else I find, and answer follow-up questions for people after they accept. I'm so sorry you are getting the run-around. I hope your luck will change.
