Some lots are accompanied by gemmological certificates which give an opinion on some or all of the gem stones included in that particular lot. These certificates may have been obtained by Woolley & Wallis or supplied by vendors. It is important to note that the content of these certificates is not guaranteed by Woolley & Wallis and we cannot be held responsible for any disagreement over the content of certificates after the sale, or for a retrospective change in opinion by the providers of any of the certificates.

It is common practice for coloured stones including jade to be treated to enhance their appearance. This includes jade that has been bleached (usually in acid), polymer/resin filled or dyed, or a combination of any of these treatments.
Prospective buyers should presume that all coloured stones sold by Woolley & Wallis have been treated unless stated to the contrary in the catalogue description.
Please contact the department for more information regarding enhancement and treatment of coloured stones, and for condition reports which are available on single item lots.
Items described as 'seed pearls' have not been tested and cannot be guaranteed as natural pearls.
Any dispute as to the authenticity of a lot, including signatures, age and condition, and as to the treatment of gem stones including pearls and HTHP enhanced diamonds, must be brought to the attention of Woolley & Wallis within two weeks of the sale date.
