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.
Not all images are life-sized, weights and measurements in the catalogue
are approximate only.
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 and 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.
Any dispute as to the authenticity of a lot, including signatures, age and
condition, and as to the treatment of gem stones including pearls, synthetic
diamonds and HTHP enhanced diamonds, must be brought to the attention
of Woolley and Wallis within two weeks of the sale date.
Woolley & Wallis do not guarantee the working order of mechanical movements
at the point of sale and beyond.
