Customer Question
I have a squash...

I have a squash blossom necklace that I want to sell and am being asked if it’s sterling. I assume it is but don’t know for sure. I need to know it’s value

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I have been told it was made in the 70’s. There is some kind of stamp on it but is too small to read. I was told it is worth $600 but I paid $850 for it.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Not that I know of. I have pictures of the piece
