DESCRIPTION OF LOTS CJG offers a Quality Assurance Report (QAR) for a fee of $20.00 per item, which will be added to the Buyer’s Statement (Invoice) only if the Buyer communicates directly with CJG and requests that a QAR accompany each item(s) purchased. Item descriptions only represent an estimated opinion by CJG. CJG maintains original certified appraisals on file, which provide an opinion as to the Estimated Retail Value based on comparison. In no way or case shall CJG be held responsible for any inaccuracies or differences which could occur by examination of the item by other Gemological Laboratories or other experts in the field of grading gemstones and jewelry. The catalogue descriptions and any amendments thereto reflect CJG’ opinion of the item(s) being auctioned. All property is sold "AS IS" without any representations or warranties by CJG as to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, the correctness of the catalogue or other description of the physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, medium, provenance, exhibitions, literature or historical relevance of any property and no statement anywhere, whether oral or written, whether made in the catalog, an advertisement, a bill of sale or elsewhere, shall be deemed such a warranty, representation or assumption of liability. CJG is not responsible for errors and omissions in the catalogue, glossary, or any supplemental material.

All images in the catalog are for identification purposes only and are not intended to represent the actual color or clarity of the item being auctioned.

Moreover, CJG disclaims responsibility for, and prospective Buyers should not rely upon the details identifying metals, gemstones, weights, sizes, quality, condition or authenticity of any lot described in the catalogue or condition report. Buyers shall note that some natural gemstones may be processed by a variety of different techniques, including but not limited to, treatments using oil, heat and resins, which offer an enhanced appearance.

ESTIMATES Quoted estimated retail values are based upon the estimates, which may vary, based upon market conditions (worldwide) and shall not be considered in any manner whatsoever, as to the actual value of the item.
