Estate Jewelry and Antiques Bought and Sold by Graduate Gemologists.
About Lee Ryan Antiques & Jewelry
Our Service PledgeWe guarantee all our items to be as described; diamonds will be diamonds, gold will be gold, etc. If possible, a picture will show the quality mark of the precious metal. If this is not possible due to wear, size or position, rest assured that we have ensured its quality as stated. This will be determined by acid or electronic testing. In the very rare event an item isn't as described (within reason, of course) a full refund will be given.
Please remember that vintage, antique and pre-owned items will more than likely show signs of wear and may have slight dings, scratches and other signs of age and use. We will note anything that seems in excess of these norms. Very few older items are mint; please keep that in mind.
We are buyers and sellers of estate jewelry, antiques, older collectibles, sterling silver flatware and sterling silver hollowware.
Lee received her Graduate Gemologist degree in 1989 and Don received his degree in 1992. We maintain a complete gem lab on the premises to ensure the identification and quality of any estate jewelry we place for sale.
Each item of jewelry is inspected and ultrasonically cleaned (if the piece permits) before we place it for sale. Necklaces may have been restrung to ensure integrity.
Some softer gemstones (e.g. opals, emeralds, pearls, etc.), especially those set in rings, may show signs of wear, particularly in older pieces. Diamonds, rubies and sapphires generally do not show these age indicators since they are so hard. We will note in the description if any item has more than its fair share of wear and tear. Weight and quality of mounted stones are only approximations.
Although a watch may be listed as running and keeping time, no guarantee of accuracy is implied.
Any vintage watch should be inspected by your trusted jeweler or watchmaker to ensure its continued wellbeing (and your satisfaction). Please buy it only with that caveat.
Because The US Post Office never seems to have enough money on hand at its windows, we cannot accept USPS money orders for more than $100.00. Sorry for any inconvenience, but we're tired of making several trips back and forth hoping they've taken in enough to cash a two or three hundred dollar MO. Thank you for understanding. This, of course, does not affect bank money orders.
Please check stated dimensions; pictures may be larger or smaller than the actual item.
WE DO NOT DISCOUNT OUR ITEMS.
We Ship to US Addresses ONLY.
