A preliminary exhibition allows the buyers to see the condition of the goods offered for sale. However, the photos produced in the catalog are valid as an exhibition. No claims will be accepted once the auction is over. The reproductions in the catalog of the works are as faithful as possible, a difference in color or tone is nevertheless possible. The dimensions are given as an indication only.

References in the catalog description or condition report to accident or restoration are made to facilitate inspection and are subject to the personal examination of the buyer or his competent representative.

The absence of such a reference in the catalog does not imply that an object is free of any defect or restoration; nor does a reference to a particular defect imply the absence of all other defects.

The absence of an indication of restoration or accident does not imply that a piece of jewelry is free of defects. It is specified that the origin of the stones and the quality (color and purity of the diamonds) reflect the opinion of the laboratory issuing the certificate. No claim will be accepted if another laboratory issues a different opinion, and the auctioneer cannot be held responsible.

No claims will be accepted regarding possible restorations or accidents after the auction. The condition reports requested from the auction house before the sale are given as an indication as far as possible.
