I inherited a bunch of Native American jewelry (several hundred pieces in total) several years ago. I'm thinking about selling some of it, but I'm not sure of the value. Do I need to find a specialist to appraise it? Can you recommend one near St. Louis? [more inside]
I *love* this aquamarine and diamond 14K ring, which is priced at $1850(USD). Not that I'm actually planning on buying it, but just for curiosity's sake, and possibly for practical use much further down the financial road, is this a competitive price, or could I hope to have one just like it made, or to find something similar, for less?
Could you tell me about how much these diamond earrings are worth? More inside... [more inside]

I currently live in Utah, and my mother is sending me my great-grandmother's jewelry for me to sell as a way to help subsidize my move to California. I've sold contemporary jewelry in pawn shops before, but I think that with these pieces being from the 20s, I should be able to get more than "weight of gold"....what is the best way to go about selling these?

My girlfriend would like to sell a silver heart necklace with a small (~0.10 ct) diamond. It was purchased ~6 years ago for ~$400 on clearance somewhere. That's about all the information we have about it. Questions: What's the best way of going about selling such a thing? Ebay? Does it need to be appraised? How much does that typically cost? We're in Los Angeles.
Jewelry appraisal : I have a rather unique piece of jewelry that I'd like to get appraised to find out what the gemstone is, and possibly the origins of the piece. What kind of place should I go to? Any specific questions I should ask? What should an appraisal cost? Thanks in advance.
