I have a diamond...

I have a diamond ring that was purchased 18 years ago for $8500, and I am interested in seeing how much it is worth today.

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.

It is 14K Gold ring with about 20 small diamonds in a unique patters that looks like 3 triangles.

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

The marking on the inside of the ring has a 14K IKG on and G 207 engraved on the inside.

Awesome, one other question. If I want to sell this ring what could I get from a dealer? Any suggestions?

A dealer will offer you $2800 to $3250-it is not the best idea to sell the ring.

I would suggest an auction house that does well with fine vintage jewelry.

Go to liveauctioneers.com and search their site for an auction house

like Skinner's in Boston or one in your area in a big city where they get the highest prices.
