Answers by Expert:
With over 28 years in the jewelry industry we can answer most any questions you may have regarding "fine" jewelry, we cannot answer questions regarding "costume" jewelry or antique value jewelry unless it is diamond or gemstone related. In addition I cannot answer questions regarding Hallmarks or which jeweler made your item of jewelry. Please do not ask these questions as I am a diamond expert and jewelry designer.
I am a graduate of the Gemological Institute of America since August 1982, and have sold diamonds wholesale, custom mfg. and designed quality high end jewelry. I have appraised jewelry for government agencies and continue to deal with Insurance co. for replacement of lost jewelry.
