GovernmentAuction.com utilizes Retail Replacement Value Appraisals, which are the most common. These types of evaluations are written for insurance needs. This would be the cost to replace the jewelry with an item of equal quality and kind, considered to be the current market price or the replacement value. This type of appraisal is done to protect you in the event of damage or loss of a valuable item. Our appraisals are conducted by and independent 3rd Party appraisal firm that utilizes Certified GIA Gemologist, if more information is needed you are welcome to contact them directly: Gemological Laboratory of America- firstname.lastname@example.org
Appraisals should be used for verification of gemstone and/or metal weight, size, and grade only, not actual value. Appraisal value should be considered for insurance purposes only, not actual value, as price varies greatly from retail locations thru out the world. Items should not be purchased with the expectation to resell for appraisal price, or for profit.
Shipping and Fees
This auction requires that the winning bidder pay a shipping/insurance fee of $19.95 and a Buyer's Premium of 15%. This amount will be added to the winning bid and will be included in the total purchase price paid by the buyer to the seller. Winning Bid + $19.95 + Buyer's Premium = Total Purchase Price.
The Fees mentioned above are non-refundable if the item is returned, except if the error is ours.
In most cases, for multiple purchases of similar items we'd be happy to combine shipping charges upon request.
