It looks to be a stylized heart or perhaps the letter "H" inside of a heart.
Any help would be appreciated.
I just found this lovely older pin and it is marked E 14k. Does anyone know what that means. I have never seen an eletroplated piece marked that way.
I have gotten into a very passionate hobby of buying, testing, evaluating and eventually selling Diamond rings on eBay.
It started with me selling a few low value rings (£100 to £200) that I had actually got off eBay but then got bigger stones so sold these 3 rings via auction and they all sold. Only one went for less than I paid and that was my fault as I set the reserve too low.
Now I have two diamond rings up and the value is considerably more (£500 to £600)
I would like to slowly build up my inventory to have around 50 rings in circulation.
I must confess, I have revised the listings multiple times and cancelled one twice because I keep trying to improve on the photos and description and I know that looks bad so I accept I probably won't sell these this month.
I have added a video to both listings because with diamonds you cannot get an idea of how it looks in a still photo and to be honest even in a video you loose all of the fire.
Had one silly offer for half the asking price which I refused, naturally.
It seems like no one is buying diamond rings at the moment though and this is what got me into buying them for myself, you cannot give them away!
I have been watching other rings from other sellers and they are not selling or hitting the reserve price and I am reffring to high carat diamond rings (.70 to 1.5)
I would like to sell one a month at least just to keep my interest peaked. I truly love the whole loupe examination, the research about clarity and cut, testing the stones with my tester, shopping around at fairs and real live auctions, taking the photos. I am obsessed!
But unless someone buys then what's the point?
Do fine jewellry sales wax and wane? Or is it just because the value is considerable?
I would love some feedback from an actual jewellry seller but totally understand if no one wants to advise a potential competitor !
Thanks for reading my ramble!
