Jewellery 

It is accepted practice that many coloured gemstones, including coral and jade, are routinely treated to enhance their colour and possibly clarity and, unless otherwise stated in individual condition reports, it must be assumed that those offered for sale have possibly been subjected to such treatments. 

Many of the jewellery lots in our auction are Continental or made outside the UK and whilst they have all been spot tested with acid to estimate the carat of the gold, as they were not manufactured for the UK market and may have subsequent repairs or alterations, we cannot guarantee any item will pass assay in the UK. 

Buyers of CITES’ species should always check domestic import restrictions prior to bidding. This includes certain species of coral and, in particular, please note the new US legislation on ivory. 

In addition, buyers should also check domestic import restrictions on certain coloured stones, notably the US legislation on jadeite and rubies originating from Burma. 

We ask prospective buyers to bear in mind that our photographs may not provide an accurate representation of colour and size.

Please note that potential purchasers should not attempt to test pieces further without an auctioneer’s specific consent.

 

Watches

Please be aware that clients are not permitted to open or strip down watches due to ongoing issues of damage. Most watches have images of the movements available on our website, www.sworder.co.uk.

Also note that most of the watches have been opened and will therefore require resealing prior to being worn.
