the experience was great. The bracelet was shipped in two boxes, so it appears to be a book box.

Wonderful Purchase!
I bought this sterling pitcher sight unseen. It was exactly as described and we were pleased. Arranging payment was confusing, but didn't affect the outcome of our purchase. Wish every auction house used a standardized payment and shipping policy and that Live Auctioneers had a telephone number for customer support. Thanks for a great purchase!

Beware of hidden fees
Beware of hidden fees that you will only be told about once you purchase an item. Hess is too busy to take your call and won't work with you in any matter to resolve the issues. Not recommend!!

Sir this is categorically incorrect and unreasonable. Our contract terms are clear and you agree to them BEFORE your bid is placed. You seem upset about the disclosed credit card fees charged, which you agreed to. Before the invoices where created your got a "Victorious Winner" email that gave you five (5) separate payment methods that did not have any credit card fees. We do this in an abundance of fairness a day before invoices are generated. You did not avail yourself of any of these alternative payment methods. The shipping calculator was in the auction so the shipping costs should not be a surprise but again you had the opportunity to choose an outside shipper. You did not avail yourself of these outside shippers. Sales Tax is governed under Wayfair V South Dakota and is collected and remitted by the platform and agreed to when you joined. We sellers have no control over your States sale tax laws. It is true that after you paid with a credit card and received the item properly packed, insured signature delivery you wanted to renegotiate the terms, and we explained we could not. I am truly sorry you where unaware of the contract terms that you agreed to but this is not the fault of the seller.

A month to ship a watch??
I won the auction for a Rolex President 19018 OysterQuartz 18k Gold Factory Diamond Day Date mens watch on 6/10/23. I paid it promptly the next day and paid them for the shipping. I love an auction house that does their own shipping as it streamlines the whole process and Hess Fine Auctions does this. Weeks went by and no watch or tracking information. An email to them was answered promptly and told me it takes "a while" for them to get all the shipping done. On 7/7/23 my watch finally arrived, but a month to ship a watch?? This was an over $13, 000 item. That was really disappointing. I do love the watch, but hated the wait.
