Not a problem, because the stones are pretty well matched & arranged as they are & the quality of the stones by todays offerings, the appraisal for ins replacement retail is in the $200,000.00 neighborhood. This is including the gold work, this appraisal was last done about 1.5yrs ago & prices have gone up for emerald & ruby dramatically. At todays costs I couldnt afford to replace this item-the stones were bought over the years & costs have gone up. Some of the offers I get are for the stones which will be sold as singles or parcels, the gold would be scraped for content. As a whole, the piece has ‘story’ & will be kept as is, while I have it-steve…
