How do I calculate the duties, taxes, and/or other fees that a person in Italy will have to pay in order to receive a gift mailed from the United States?

I am a lawyer in the United States representing the estate of a woman. The woman left a bracelet to her friend in Italy and now I have to mail the bracelet to the friend.
I have been altogether unable to find out how much money the Italian friend will have to pay (in taxes, duties, customs fees, etc.) in order to receive her bracelet. DHL does not know. The post office does not know. I was unable to locate a source on the internet for the information I need.
Can you assist me?
